Reliance Industries Ltd on Friday reported a 27 per cent jump in its September quarter net profit as earnings from the oil and gas business rebounded, and a pick-up in fashion and grocery helped boost retail revenues.
The oil-to-retail-to-telecom conglomerate’s consolidated net profit of Rs 17,394 crore, or Rs 25.71 per share, in July-September — the second quarter of the current 2023-24 fiscal — was 27.3 per cent higher than Rs 13,656 crore, or Rs 19.92 a share, earning a year back, the company said in a statement.
The net profit was also higher quarter-on-quarter compared to Rs 16,011 crore earnings in the preceding three months ended June 30.
The firm, helmed by billionaire Mukesh Ambani, saw retail business getting good traction with growth in fashion and lifestyle as well as grocery and consumer electronics. Telecom revenues posted a modest increase as the company has not yet announced a tariff plan for 5G services even though there was a jump in data consumption with consumers migrating from faster networks.
