JLR's reported operating margins were 17.8 percent. Excluding a one-time local tax incentive of 79 million pounds, it stood at 16.1 percent, as per a presentation posted on its web site.

"At the outset, it seemed that F2Q14 was as a stellar quarter but as we adjust for one-offs, it comes down to an in-line quarter at net level and JLR EBITDA was tad below expectations," said a report said on Monday.

"Given that F2Q14 has been a quarter full of beats across auto names, an in-line result could be taken as a disappointment by the Street thus we could get better entry points into the stock," it said.
