The company has delivered one of its best physical performances during the quarter as well as nine months ending 31st Dec, 2021. However, the same is not reflected in the financial performance of Q3 FY’22 due to various factors beyond the control of the company which primarily include unprecedented increase in the prices of imported and indigenous coking coal. With the overall positive outlook in the economy and the announcements in the Union Budget for increasing the infrastructure spending, the performance is likely to improve in the coming quarters. The company’s focus remains to lower its borrowings and this is reflected in the reduction of about 15% over Q2.
