Anil Ambani-promoted Reliance Power on Monday announced a consolidated net profit of Rs 344.3 crore for the quarter ended June 30.
The first quarter net profit was 41% higher than Rs 244.4 crore in the corresponding period a year ago.
As per the filing in the Bombay Stock Exchange, the jump in profit is attributable to higher sale of power.
