Net interest income surges by 22 per cent to ₹4,147 crore

In a statement on Monday, HDFC Ltd said the profit numbers for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, however, are not directly comparable with that of the previous year. This is due to lower profit on sale of investments, dividend, higher charge for employee stock options and effective tax rate of 23.1 per cent in 2021-22 as against 15.4 per cent last fiscal.

“In the previous year, the tax on capital gains on sale of equity shares was low on account of grandfathering provisions as per the Income Tax Act, 1961,” it said.
