The topline income showed a growth of 12% due to growth in volumetric sale during the year. On the other hand, the cost of sales surged by 43.1% on the back of higher fuel and power expense and lower retention price.
The finance cost depicted a growth of 1.35x owing to increase in the policy rate as well as excessive borrowings.
The losses can also be attributed to the closure of the plant during the lockdown period, which resulted in a lower number of operational days.
