Lakshmi Machine Works (LMW) Limited, a leading textile machinery manufacturer in India, has posted a 37 percent increase in net profit during the first quarter of current fiscal ended June 30. The company's net profit rose to Rs. 411.4 million with a sound 50 percent increase in its total earnings to Rs. 5.02 billion.
