Ambuja Cements, in which Switzerland's Holcim <HOLN.VX> owns about 36 percent, said net profit, rose to 2.92 billion rupees ($73.6 million) in its third quarter to September 30, from 2.62 billion reported a year ago.

Total income rose to 13.18 billion rupees from 11.60 billion.

A Reuter's survey of 10 brokerages had forecast for a quarterly profit of 3.31 billion rupees on total income of 13 billion.
