Faced with challenges in the public sector, country's second largest software services firm Infosys today said it may see slower pace of growth in its India business revenues as it refocuses on its strategy.

"We entered India with certain strategic priorities only three years back. We have certain challenges in working with public sector bodies in Indian government. So we are refocussing our India business here.

"We will continue to focus here, India is strategic to us, but it needs a little more pace," Infosys CEO and Managing Director S D Shibulal told reporters here.
