Maruti Suzuki India Ltd’s fiscal third quarter net profit rose by over 47% on-year to Rs 1,744.5 crore, helped by higher sales of premium vehicles, cost cutting and non-operating income. The rise was broadly in line with street expectations. A Reuters poll had projected the automaker’s Oct-Dec net to be at Rs 1,747 crore.

The company’s total income from operations rose by over 13% on-year to Rs 19,173 crore in Oct-Dec, it said.

Higher premium segment sales, lower marketing costs, cut in costs and non-operating income lifted profit after tax.
