Shares of Torrent Pharmaceuticals Ltd rose as much as 6.2 per cent to Rs 1,559, posting their biggest intra-day per cent gain since August 3, 2018.

June-quarter profit climbed 32.5 per cent to Rs 216 crore ($31.32 million), slightly ahead of the Rs 213-crore estimate.

Total revenue jumped 7.5 per cent, helped by a rise in sales in most geographies.

Around 7,10,000 shares changed hands during the session, 2.4 times the 30-day average.

Up to last close, the Torrent stock had fallen 17.1 per cent this year, while Aurobindo Pharma had lost ~23.4 per cent.
