Despite a higher turnover of Rs 36.27 crores against Rs 30 crores, the outcome has been a net loss of Rs 2.93 crores against a net profit of Rs 9 lakhs in the previous year.

Due to shortfall in coal supply during the first quarter and the unprecedented loadshedding, the company could carry on with restricted operations during the first half of this year.
