The company had posted a net loss of Rs 5.20 crore for the corresponding quarter last fiscal.

Total income from operations rose by 18.6 per cent to Rs 5,219.31 crore for the reported period compared to Rs 4,400.46 crore in the year-ago period, the company said in a filing to the BSE.

The wholesale voice business continued to outpace the global market growth rate recording 11 per cent growth in revenue from operations compared to FY2013, it said.
