We have seen an exciting growth in net sales (Rs.996.79 Cr) in second quarter this year registering a strong growth of approx 33% as compared to the subsequent quarter in last year (Rs.748.82 Cr). Our focus on retail business has increased in last few years and so, we had strengthened our distribution network, which is now showing a positive result and we are hopeful to achieve 35 % growth in retail segment by end of this financial year. Considering the continuous burgeoning demand, we are also working on increasing production capacity, as in the 1st Phase of LT Power Cable at our new factory in Pathredi is completed and in now 2nd Phase, HT Power Cable expansion is expected to get over by February-March 2019. With the positive demand in the market, we foresee positive growth this year as well.”
