Mumbai: Housing finance major HDFC on Monday said that its standalone net profit during the third quarter of 2017-18 increased to Rs 5,670 crore.

The company had reported a net profit of Rs 1,701 crore for the corresponding period of the previous fiscal.
“In the quarter ended December 31, 2017, the Corporation received Rs 5,250 crore (net of estimated expenses, which are yet to be fully crystalised) from the initial public offer (IPO) of HDFC Standard Life Insurance Company Limited (HDFC Life),” HDFC said in a statement.
