Reliance Industries reports 14 per cent higher YoY PAT for Q1-2015

BENGALURU: Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) reported 7.2 per cent growth in consolidated operating revenue in Q1-2015 to reach Rs 107905 crore on a y-o-y basis. The company?s y-o-y PAT jumped 13.7 per cent in Q1-2015 to Rs 5957 crore.

Two of the smallest contributors to RIL revenue ? organised retail and others ? which include its mobile, 4G services, internet, tower and television segments are covered in this report. The company?s other segment has reported 1.8 per cent lower revenue in Q1-2015 at Rs 1772 crore as compared to the Rs 1804 crore in Q4-2014 and slightly lower than the Rs 1775 crore in Q1-2014.
