Mumbai: Country's largest software services firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Wednesday said it has bagged a four-year deal from UK's Network Rail Infrastructure Ltd. The IT Solutions and System Integration Framework agreement encompasses identifying, defining, designing, building and integration of next generation IT solutions for Network Rail, TCS said in a statement.
    
Though the company did not disclose financial details, sources said the deal size is worth over 350 million pound.

TCS will be a key enabler in helping Network Rail to achieve its objective of generating an outstanding value for taxpayers and users by continually improving the railway, it said.
