Reliance Industries (RIL) today reported a 13.7 per cent rise in first quarter consolidated net profit on the back of higher refining margin.

Consolidated net profit in April-June quarter at Rs 5,957 crore (Rs 59.57 billion) was 13.7 per cent higher than Rs 5,237 crore in the same period a year ago, the company said in a filing to stock exchanges.
