Bharti Airtel, India's top mobile operator, increased quarterly profit by 21 per cent as it added more users and held tariffs steady even as rivals cut prices, but growth concerns weighed on its stock. The company, about 31 per cent owned by Southeast Asia's top phone firm SingTel, announced its maiden dividend and a two-for-one stock split, but its shares underperformed the broader market after jumping initially.
