Consolidated revenue from operations decreased sequentially by 0.7 percent from Rs 55,681.93 crore in the prior quarter.

Based on the average of seven analysts’ estimates, the company was anticipated to report a consolidated net profit of Rs 702.70 crore and consolidated revenue of Rs 56,400.50 crore, with a 1.3 percent on-quarter increase driven by higher sales realisation in Indian operations and increased sales volume in India.
