Software services major Wipro on Friday reported a 10% year-on-year increase in net profit at Rs 1,456 crore for the three months ended December, aided by a weak rupee and better price realisations for IT service deals.

The company had posted a net profit of Rs 1,319 crore during the same period last year. http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/HTEditImages/Images/21-01-buss03.jpg
