MUMBAI/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - HDFC Bank Ltd, the largest private lender in the country, registered a 21% net profit rise for the June quarter on the back of strong retail lending, it said on Saturday. Net profit rose to 55.68 billion rupees ($808.71 million) in the quarter ending June 30, compared with 46 billion rupees in the corresponding quarter last year. The results were in line with market expectations as analysts had expected the bank to clock a net profit of 56 billion rupees for the quarter, Refinitiv data showed.
HDFC, one of the best bank stocks among emerging-market economies, has kept pace with U.S. markets this year and could be at an inflection point.
