New Delhi: The country's largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) on Tuesday reported 4.13 percent rise in consolidated net profit at Rs 1,587.4 crore for December quarter 2019-20, riding on lower commodity prices, reduced corporate tax rate besides its cost reduction efforts.

The company had posted a net profit of Rs 1,524.5 crore in the same quarter last fiscal, MSI said in a regulatory filing.

Consolidated revenue from operations in the quarter under review stood at Rs 20,721.8 crore as against Rs 19,680.7 crore in the year-ago period, up 5.29 percent, it added.

The company sold a total of 4,37,361 vehicles during the quarter, up 2 percent as compared to the same period previous year.

During April-December 2019, the company said its consolidated net profit stood at Rs 4,355.3 crore as compared to Rs 5,819.8 crore in the year-ago period, down 25.16 percent.
