HDFC Bank Ltd has reported record profit for the three months ending September 30 broadly in line with expectations, helped by higher interest and fee income. Net profit rose to 50.05 billion rupees ($682.16 million) for the quarter ended Sept 30, from 41.51 billion rupees a year ago, India’s biggest lender by market capitalisation said. Fifteen analysts, on average, had expected a net profit of 50.30 billion rupees, according to I/B/E/S data. Asset quality was largely stable, with gross bad loans as a percentage of total loans standing at 1.33 percent at the end of September, unchanged from the previous quarter and from 1.26 percent in the same period last year.
