The corporation had posted a net profit of Rs2,870 crore in the same period a year ago.
HDFC’s total income during the July-September 2021-22 quarter rose to Rs12,226.39 crore, against Rs11,732.70 crore in the same period of FY21, HDFC said in a regulatory filing.

''The demand for home loans continues to remain strong. Growth in home loans was seen in both the affordable housing segment as well as in high-end properties. The increasing sales momentum and new project launches augur well for the housing sector,'' HDFC said in the filing.
During the half-year ended 30 September 2021, individual approvals and disbursements grew 67 per cent and 80 per cent, respectively, compared to the corresponding period of the previous financial year, it said.
