India's Idea Cellular Ltd reported a 14 percent increase in quarterly profit, the third straight quarter of earnings growth for the country's No. 3 mobile carrier by revenue, though the rise was smaller than expected.

Analysts had expected the company to report net profit of 2.65 billion rupees, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
