One of the most important parts of the Indian economy and a leading source of foreign currency earnings for the country is the information technology (IT) sector. In 2020, the information technology industry was responsible for eight percent of India's GDP, and by 2025, it is expected to contribute around ten percent.

At the moment, India is the world's leading provider of information technology services. Because there is a ready supply of labour that is both highly skilled and relatively inexpensive, the nation enjoys a competitive edge. India is the most important location for sourcing in the world. The country is responsible for providing services to approximately 55 percent of the 185–190 billion USD worldwide service sourcing business as well as 38 percent of the BPM sourcing market.

As a consequence of this, making an investment in the IT sector in order to capitalise on its growth is an idea that makes perfect sense. We have provided a list of five IT companies that have strong fundamentals, and in picking these stocks, we ensured that company has strong fundamentals, a market capitalization of over Rs.10,000 crore and a peg ratio of less than 2.
