The net profit has grown by 2.3% in the 2QFY01, due to better operating margins, lower interest and depreciation costs. However the net profit has actually grown much more in the 2QFY01, as the previous year 2QFY00's net includes RS 36m on profit on sale of assets. Hence the current years performance is much better. During the current financial year the company plans to sell off its Mumbai office premises, the income from sale of this will be accounted for in the quarter in which this sale takes place.

On the current price of Rs 474 it is trading on 12.2x FY2000 EPS of Rs 38.8
