Commenting on the guidance for the year, Mastek's Ashank Desai says: ''Over the next few years we will be on an exciting journey - building a large IT services organisation. We will continue to build on the confidence and foundation that we have created last year. While uncertainties relating to the timing of the US economic recovery still remain over the next few years we see a substantial increase in IT budgets allocated to India-based outsourcing. All in all, compared to a year ago, we are now more optimistic about our next four-quarter performance.''
