HDFC Bank, India's No.3 lender, met forecasts with a 30 percent rise in quarterly profit, led by stronger loan growth, better fee income and stable net interest margins.

Net interest income grew 26.7 percent to 37.3 billion rupees.
Analysts had expected a net profit of 15.58 billion rupees for the bank, which is also listed in New York and competes with bigger local rivals State Bank of India and ICICI Bank.
Asset quality at the bank remained stable with net non performing loans as a percentage of total assets at 0.2 percent, unchanged from a year ago.
Net interest margin, a key gauge of profitability for banks, stood at 4.2 percent in July-September, compared with 4.3 percent in the June quarter. The bank aims to keep this figure in a range of 3.9-4.2 percent in the near-term. ($1 = 52.6700 Indian rupees)
