Tata Motors Q3 net profit triples on Jaguar Land Rover sales

Tata Motors Ltd, India's biggest automaker by revenue, beat forecasts and posted on Monday a 195 percent increase in third-quarter net profit which was boosted by strong demand for its luxury Jaguar Land Rover vehicles.

Tata Motors said consolidated net profit for the October-December quarter was 48.05 billion rupees, compared to 16.3 billion rupees a year ago.

Analysts had expected an average profit of 33.89 billion rupees, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

British luxury carmaker JLR, which Tata Motors bought in 2008, has been propping up profits at its parent for the past two years.
