The revenues of the company grew 4% to Rs. 2,790 crore for the reported period as compared to Rs. 2,674 crore in the same period last year.

"The regulatory environment in teleco sector has improved significantly post the spectrum auctions conducted in February 2014."

For the fiscal 2013-14, the company reported a net profit of Rs. 1,518 crore as compared to Rs. 1,003 crore last time.
