Mumbai: Idea Cellular Ltd reported a 57.2 percent jump in quarterly profit as mobile phone carriers benefit from fewer competitors in the world’s second-largest mobile phone market after a long price war.

Idea, India’s third-biggest mobile phone operator by users and revenue, said on Monday consolidated first-quarter profit was Rs 7.28 billion ($120.8 million), up from Rs 4.63 billion a year ago.

Analysts had expected that Idea, part of India’s Aditya Birla conglomerate and nearly a fifth owned by Malaysia’s Axiata, to earn Rs 6.29 billion.
