The company had reported a net profit of Rs 9,246 crore in the year-ago period. 

Sequentially, the net profit increased marginally in Q4FY22 from Rs 9,769 crore in Q3FY22.

The net profit would have crossed the five-digits-mark for the first time, had it not been for a trimmed margin that slipped by 1.89 per cent to 25 per cent, the company said.

Total income increased 15.5 per cent to Rs 51,572 crore from Rs 44,636 crore in the same period last year.
