Country's fifth largest IT services exporter Tech Mahindra on Tuesday reported a 4% year-on-year decline in consolidated profit after tax (PAT) to 1,285.4 crore in the second quarter of FY23 (July-September), as higher expenses offset the rise in revenue.

Sequentially, the revenue was up 3.3%. In constant currency (CC) terms, the dollar revenue grew by nearly 3% sequentially.

The attrition rate declined to 20% for the quarter from 22% reported in the first quarter ended 30 June, 2022.
