MUMBAI, Feb 14 (Reuters) - India’s Tata Motors on Tuesday reported a worse than expected 96 percent fall in net profit for its third quarter, citing slow growth in sales at its British luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover and losses in its domestic business.
Consolidated net profit for the three months to Dec. 31 was 1.12 billion rupees ($16.73 million) compared with 29.53 billion rupees a year earlier. Total income from operations fell 4.3 percent to 685.41 billion rupees.
