Abstract

Information Technology (IT) industry has played a major role in the Indian economy during the last few years. Over the past decade, IT has become one of the fastest growing industries in India. It has grown at a CAGR of 28% during last decades. IT sector has been chosen for study because it is a sunshine sector of India. The dividend payment pattern of IT companies has changed leaps and bounds over past few years. While taking these considerations taken into account, the relationship between the company's selected factors and the dividend payouts has been somewhat different but we do not know the determinants of the Indian IT companies' dividend payouts. To our knowledge, few studies regarding determinants of dividend payouts have been conducted in Indian context and they are not up to date. Thus, it would be interesting to investigate the issue to conduct a research regarding the relationship between a number of factors and the dividend payouts in the IT sector.
