For the full year to March, the financial services arm of the engineering giant L&T reported a steep 40 per cent growth in net at Rs 1,459 crore over the previous year.

This was due to the robust growth, focus on fee income, improving productivity and significant improvement in asset quality have led to delivery of 15.03 per cent RoE for FY18, even after injection of Rs 3000 crore capital in March to the parent.
