The company had posted a net profit of Rs 65.23 crore for the corresponding period of last fiscal, Godrej Industries said in a BSE filing.
Net sales of the company rose to Rs 2,236.56 crore in the quarter under review, up 14.09 percent from Rs 1,960.23 crore in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal.
"The cost of crude oil has come down, which has helped the company in reducing fuel, transport and packaging cost," Godrej Industries Chairman A B Godrej told media.
He said there has been almost all round growth across different business verticals in the quarter.
"Most of the companies have done well. Godrej Consumer has registered over 35 growth in profit and 29 percent by Godrej Agrovat. Godrej Properties has also done well with 26 percent growth in profit," Godrej said.

However, profit had declined in some of the segments such as chemicals and veg oil due to weak international markets, he added.
On the outlook, Godrej said: "The economic momentum is very good and macro conditions are helping us to grow. We are positive about it."
The company posted a consolidated revenue of Rs 308.96 crore from the chemicals division and Rs 614.99 crore from veg oil segments during the quarter under review. It was Rs 334.84 crore and Rs 610.91 crore, respectively during the same quarter last fiscal.
