Tata Motors, part of the $100 billion Tata conglomerate, said consolidated net profit for the April-June quarter rose to 53.98 billion rupees ($882.31 million) compared with Rs 17.68 billion a year ago.
Analysts had expected an average profit of Rs 37.1 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.
Consolidated revenue grew 38.2 per cent to Rs 646.83 billion.
