Sale of branded formulations in India for Q2FY18 was Rs. 2,221 crores, up 11 percent and accounted for 34 percent of total sales.

In the emerging markets, the sales were at Dollars 196 million for the second quarter this fiscal, a growth of 16 per cent compared to the same quarter past year and accounting for 19 per cent of the total sales, the company said.
