BENGALURU: Sahara One Media & Entertainment Limited (Sahara One) reported a little more than one third the PAT at Rs 1.78 crore (2 per cent of net revenue from operations or Op Rev) in FY-2014 as compared to the Rs 5.29 crore (4.3 per cent of Op Rev) in FY-2013.  During the last two quarters of FY-2014, the company has incurred loss, and the profit that it has reported is residual from the PAT of the first two quarters of the year.
