RCom Q2 net falls 60% due to heavy debt load

Reliance Communications reported a sharper-than-expected 60 percent decline in quarterly profit as the country's No3 mobile phone carrier by customers struggles with its heavy debt load.

Consolidated net profit fell to Rs 102 crore for its fiscal second quarter ended September, from Rs 252 crore reported a year earlier, Reliance Communications, controlled by billionaire Anil Ambani, said in a statement on Thursday.
