Hindustan Zinc yesterday reported an 8 per cent growth in its March quarter net profit to Rs 2,149 crore.

The firm, part of metals and mining conglomerate Vedanta Ltd, had clocked a net profit of Rs 1,997.44 crore in the year-ago quarter, it had said in a regulatory filing.

However, the firm led by billionaire Anil Agarwal posted a 20 per cent decline in total income at Rs 3,132.39 crore in January-March, from Rs 4,125.68 crore during the same period in 2014-15, due to lower zinc volume and depressed prices at the London Metal Exchange (LME).

On the decline in revenue, HZL said: "The decrease was on account of lower zinc volumes and LME, partly offset by higher volumes of lead and silver and rupee depreciation."
