Axis Bank Ltd posted a 25.3% rise in its Q3 net profit, helped by higher interest and fee income plus a drop in provisions for bad loans, although results fell slightly short of a consensus estimate.

Net profit rose to Rs 726.44 crore or USD 113.86 million, for the quarter ended Dec 31, 2017 from Rs 579.57 crore a year ago, the country's third-largest private sector lender by assets, announced on Monday.

Gross bad loans as a percentage of total loans stood at 5.28% at December end, vis-à-vis 5.90% in the previous quarter and 5.22% a year earlier.

Shares of Axis Bank today closed at Rs. 614 on the BSE, up 4.02% from previous its close, while benchmark Sensex index rose 0.81% to 35,798.10 points, while on NSE the share price closed at Rs 611.30 up by 3.57%
