The operating profit has increased from Rs. 102.65 Cr to Rs. 110.5 Cr while the operating profit margin has dipped 413 basis points to 23.09% as compared to 27.22%. This is mainly on account of 43% rise in both - raw material and salary expense. 
The raw material cost as percentage of operating income has increased from 65.23% as against 69.25%. The company has also increased the remuneration of its top management personnel resulting in a rise in salary expense from Rs. 19.18 Cr (Q2 FY 13) to Rs. 27.50 Cr (Q2 FY 14).
Consequently, the net profit margin has also reduced from 9.91% as compared to 8.66%. Interest cost has registered a marginal decline, which has resulted in improvement in profit after tax of Rs. 41.44 Cr vis-à-vis Rs. 37.36 Cr.
