It said that profits for the nine months since the start of its fiscal year last April were a record-high $2.6 billion.

Reliance chairman Mukesh Ambani said profits were kept steady by the company’s oil refining business plus growing retail revenue, which expanded by 38 percent.

"This quarter demonstrates the outstanding quality of our refining and petrochemical business resources and their ability to deliver credible performance in a period marked by cyclicality and uncertainties," Ambani said.
