BENGALURU, Jan 31(Reuters) - Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) owner Tata Motors TAMO.NS reported a loss for the third quarter on Monday, as semiconductor shortages crimped the Indian automaker's ability to take advantage of the pandemic-driven demand for personal vehicles.
Consolidated net loss came in at 15.16 billion rupees ($203.23 million) for the quarter ended Dec. 31, compared to a profit of 29.06 billion rupees a year earlier when an easing of coronavirus-related restrictions had led to a pick-up in sales.
However, the recovery was short-lived as acute semiconductor shortages and supply chain disruptions delayed production, and Tata Motors slipped back to losses.
