The company reported an equally stellar 53.98 per cent growth in PAT during Q3-2014 at Rs 4.99 crore (20.01 per cent of revenue of that quarter) as compared to the Rs 3.24 crore (18.55 per cent of revenue of that quarter) during Q3-2013, and 44.13 per cent more than the Rs 3.46 crore (18.86 per cent of revenue for that quarter) during the immediate trailing quarter.

 

Let us look at the other results reported by Raj TV during Q3-2014

Another major chunk of Raj TV’s expense is Employee Benefits. During Q3-2014, the company spent Rs 6.88 crore (37.03 per cent of total expense during that quarter) towards this head, more than double (2.24 times) the Rs 3.07 crore (22.96 per cent of total expense of that quarter) during Q3-2013, and almost double (1.91 times) the Rs 3.60 crore (27.50 per cent of total expense of that quarter) during the immediate trailing quarter.
