Mumbai: Realty firm Oberoi Realty on Saturday posted an 11.6 percent increase in net profit for the quarter ended September 30 at Rs 124.36 crore on better sales.

The total sales of the company stood at Rs 282.70 crore, up over 10 percent compared to Rs 256.87 crore in the same quarter last year.

Though there has been an improvement in sentiment among the buyers following various announcements by the central government, the global and domestic headwinds still continue to exist," company's Chairman and Managing Director Vikas Oberoi said.
The recent decision of the government on FDI in retail will help rev up the economy and the benefits of this will be seen in the months to come, he added.
