As Q2 results come in, the Nifty EPS is adjusted upwards, and we can see how the EPS has been growing since last year. Compare that to the P/E ratio of the index, and we have a chart:
EPS Growth is currently 15.7%, having recently peaked at 17.7%. The current P/E is 19.03.

We haven’t met expectations since, wait, 2007. Sure, this is not consolidated EPS, which is a little higher (and unknown at this point since most companies don’t reveal consolidated results until the end of the year). The results of all Nifty companies aren’t in yet, and I’ll post a new chart once they’re all in.
