Real es­tate firm Go­drej Prop­er­ties Ltd (GPL) posted a 46% de­cline in its con­sol­i­dated net profit to ₹23.37 in the sec­ond quar­ter of the year that ended June 30, due to higher fi­nance cost and weak earn­ings dur­ing the pe­riod.

In a fil­ing to the Bombay Stock Ex­change (BSE), the com­pany said its rev­enue from op­er­a­tions dur­ing the first quar­ter this fi­nan­cial year de­clined by 18% to ₹248.85 crore as com­pared to the same pe­riod last year.

Its to­tal in­come in­creased by 3.6% to ₹345.03 crore mainly on the back of profit earned on sale of 100% stake in Go­drej In­vest­ment Ad­vis­ers Lim­ited.
