India’s largest tyre maker, MRF Ltd, has announced its unaudited standalone results for the quarter ending 31 December 2015. The company reports total income of Rs 33786.3 million (£349.9 million) for the period, 2.9 per cent less than the October to December 2014 quarter. Net profit stood at Rs 3881.5 million (£40.2 million) for the quarter, 20.0 per cent higher than a year earlier.
