MUMBAI: IndiaÂ’s largest steel maker by revenues Tata Steel has reported a 12.46 percent increase in net profit to $237.5 million for the second quarter ended September compared to $211 million for the corresponding quarter last year.

The decline in operating margin was amid increasing raw material costs and dwindling realization per ton.
