The company, which follows the July-June financial year, had reported a profit of Rs 86.78 crore in the year-ago period, according to a regulatory filing by Gillette India Ltd (GIL).
Revenue from operations was up at Rs 667.55 crore during the quarter under review as against Rs 619.92 crore in the same quarter a year ago.

Its profit growth was led by premiumisation, deliberate productivity interventions, partially offset by a one-time expense.
