MUMBAI, April 21 (Reuters) - HDFC Bank Ltd, India’s second-biggest lender by assets, reported fourth-quarter net profit rose 18.3 percent on higher interest and fee income, slightly ahead of estimates.

Net profit was 39.9 billion rupees ($617.60 million) for the three months to March 31, compared with 33.74 billion rupees reported a year ago, HDFC Bank, the most valuable lender in the sector, said on Friday.
