Private sector lender DCB Bank on Wednesday reported a net profit of Rs 86.1 crore, an impressive 51% year-on-year increase, for the quarter ended December 2018. The growth in the net profit was owing to a spike in the net interest income (NII) and operating income. The bank had reported a net profit of Rs 57.01 crore in the year-ago period.
