India's local search engine Just Dial is expected to report dismal performance in third quarter earnings due to demonetisation. Profit is seen falling 5.2 percent year-on-year to Rs 25.5 crore on weak operational performance, though other income may support.


Revenue during the quarter may increase 7.1 percent to Rs 183.5 crore compared with Rs 171.33 crore in same quarter last year, according to average of estimates of analysts polled by CNBC-TV18.
