BANGALORE (Reuters) - Tata Consultancy Services, India's top software services provider, is "very confident" heading into the current quarter and the fiscal year ending March 2014, Chief Executive N Chandrasekaran told reporters on Monday.

The company posted a stronger-than-expected 23 percent rise in quarterly profit for the three months ended December 31, fuelling hopes of a broad pickup in tech spending, after unexpectedly strong results from rival Infosys on Friday.
