The company had posted a net profit of Rs37.48 crore in the same quarter last fiscal, GTL said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
"The rise in interest cost from Rs28.64 crore in quarter ended June 2010 to Rs76.34 crore in the current quarter has led to fall in the net profit of the company," it added.

During the quarter, ICICI Bank had acquired 29.30% stake in the company, worth over Rs213 crore, after invoking the rights on the shares pledged to it.
