"I would also like to inform the shareholders that Jitin Goyal, CEO of the company, has resigned to pursue other interest," Canekeratne said in a statement.


Total income of the company decreased by 7 percent to Rs 506.72 crore during the reported quarter from Rs 542.49 crore in the same period a year ago, the company said in a filing to BSE.


Revenues grew by 2.3 per cent on quarterly basis.


"The growth was driven largely by growth in our principal business segment, Banking and Financial services which grew by 8.1 per cent," Canekeratne said.


"We will stay focused on driving the business forward, and we expect higher one-time integration related costs to impact us in the second half of the year," Polaris Chief Financial Officer N M Vaidyanathan said.
