BENGALURU: South Indian television network Raj TV Limited (Raj TV) reported PAT of Rs 0.755 crore (3.8 per cent of Total income from operations or TIO) in Q2-2015, which was a little more than one fourth (1/3.9 times) the Rs 2.922 crore (15.3 per cent of TIO) in Q1-2015 and a little more than one fifth (1/4.6 times) the Rs 3.46 crore (18.9 per cent of TIO) in Q2-2014.
