5 Years : From Oct 2012 to Oct 2017
Cummins India Ltd. (500480.BY) said Thursday its net profit remained almost flat in the fiscal third quarter, weighed by lower demand in the auto and power generation industries.

Raw-material cost reduced 9% to INR5.24 billion on year. It however didn't clarify whether a cut down in operations led to the cost decline.

The company plans to spend $500 million in a manufacturing facility in western India and INR10 billion ($202 million) on new products over the next few years.
