Tata group firm Titan Company Ltd on Thursday reported an increase of 65.6 per cent in its consolidated net profit to Rs 568 crore for the fourth quarter ended March 31, helped by a strong growth in jewellery segment.

It had posted a net profit of Rs 343 crore in the January-March 2020 quarter, Titan Company said in a regulatory filing.

Its total income during January-March 2021 jumped 58.87 per cent to Rs 7,551 crore, compared with Rs 4,753 crore in the year-ago period.

In an investors presentation, the company said this was "led by strong growth of 70 per cent in jewellery division".

However, it also added that the base quarter (March 2020 quarter) was weak due to lockdowns in second half of March.

"It was the highest-ever revenue (excluding bullion sale) recorded by the company for a quarter," it said.

Titan's total expenses were at Rs 6,821 crore, up 60.72 per cent as against Rs 4,244 crore a year ago.
