Shares in DLF Limited drop as much as 4.1 per cent after its January-March earnings fell short of some analysts' estimates.

The real estate developer on Thursday reported a profit in the fourth quarter, helped by a gain from the sale of its Amanresorts luxury hotel chain.

The company's revenue was in line with estimates, but margins disappointed once again, Motilal Oswal Securities said in a note.

Weak demand and lack of fresh launch have resulted in deterioration in core operating cash flow as well, it added.

Shares in DLF were down 2.1 percent at 199.50 rupees at 0355 GMT.
