Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications has posted a 70.8 per cent rise in net profits for the year ended March 31, to log Rs 54.01 billion ($1.35 billion), against Rs 31.64 billion ($717 million) for the year before.

In filing with stock exchanges, Reliance Communications - India's largest mobile phone company in CDMA segment - said its revenues grew 31.8 per cent to Rs 190.68 billion ($4.77 billion), against Rs 144.68 billion ($3.28 billion) for 2006-07.
