Jagran Prakashan Ltd, publishers of ‘Dainik Jagran’, has recorded a 143.80 per cent jump in net profit to reach Rs 17.70 crore in the quarter ended December 31, 2006. Net revenues were up 29.79 per cent at Rs 163.45 crore in Q3 FY07 over the corresponding quarter of the last fiscal.

Commenting on the performance and developments in the company in this quarter Mahendra Mohan Gupta, CMD, Jagran Prakashan Ltd, said, “We have always directed our efforts towards providing quality reading material to our readers and our constant effort is to provide the readers what they want to read.
