Total income during the quarter under review stood at Rs 3,519 crore. It was Rs 2,020 crore earlier, Titan said in a regulatory filing.

"The learnings and experience of the past year helped us navigate this quarter''s turbulence much more efficiently," he added.

Titan said its jewellery division is gaining good traction in new customers and its mix in total buyers has reached the pre-pandemic levels.Â
