The group posted a consolidated net loss of 951.2 crore during the period, compared to a net profit of 774.5 crore in the previous calendar year.

The total consolidated income increased 11.2 percent to 7,691 crore from 6,917.2 crore, the company added.

Meanwhile, the drug major, which has been in trouble with the US Food and Drug Administration over alleged falsification of test results in approved and pending drug applications, Monday said the US drug regulator had given it the nod to sell topirimate tablets - a medication used for the treatment of seizures.

The drug is a generic version of epilepsy drug Topamax, owned by a unit of Johnson and Johnson.
