TATA'S BOOST: Jaguar Land Rover has been credited for helping parent company Tata Motors to a first quarter profit for 2012.

MUMBAI, India - Tata Motors said its June quarter profits rose 12% as strong sales of its Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles made up for lacklustre domestic demand.

Profit for the quarter, at 22.5-billion rupees (R3.296-billion), was however, less than expected.

Strong sales at Tata subsidiary Jaguar Land Rover drove revenue up 30.1% from a year earlier to 433.2-billion rupees (R63.1-billion).

Its domestic business fared less well. Tata sold nearly 10% fewer passenger vehicles in India than it did a year earlier. Stand-alone revenue fell 8.9% to 105.9 billion rupees (R15.37-billion).
