Further, after a successful career spanning more than  four decades, Jayant Misra shall transition to an advisory role when his term ends on October 27th, 2021. Prem Khandelwal will be appointed Chief of GCS while continuing to discharge his role as CFO & Company Secretary; Bijayananda Mohapatra is being elevated as COO Designate consequent to which Binoy Agarwalla will take over as Head of the Power Business Unit.

Commenting on the results Subhrakant Panda, Managing Director said: “The Q1 FY22 performance has been exceptional, driven by steady operations and upswing in prices globally. Our strategy of entering into long term contracts which are repriced every quarter assures offtake and leads to more stability, even as the benefit of price movement is reflected with a slight lag; however, some tonnage is set aside for spot sales and monthly contracts so as to capture upside in prices. Supply side dynamics are expected to dominate going ahead, and we are uniquely positioned to benefit given our fully integrated business model.”
