New Delhi, Jul 16: The slump in the automobile industry seems to have left the country's second largest two-wheeler maker untouched. Bajaj Auto has posted a surge of 67.60 per cent in its unaudited standalone net profit for the quarter ended Jun 30.
The company's net profit stands at Rs 293.49 crore as opposed to Rs 175.11 crore in the year-ago period. The total income in the first quarter (Q1) of this fiscal increased by 1.47 per cent to Rs 2,338.47 crore.
