It added that the company is taking steps to file appeals against two court cases before the competent authority and therefore, has not made any provisions for them in the first quarter's balance sheet.

The two cases have financial impact of Rs 1,423.60 crore on the company. One of them pertains to Competition Commission of India (CCI) imposing a penalty of Rs 1,323.60 crore on the company as the CCI had found being part of a cartel, formed by some cement manufacturers.

The other case is related to Rs 100 crore fine imposed by the Himachal High Court on violating certain environmental norms by the company at its grinding and blending unit at Bagheri in Himachal Pradesh.

"Based on the advice of company's counsels, as well as its own assessment, the company believes it has strong reasons for successful appeal in both the cases. Accordingly, the company is taking steps to file appeal against the above orders before the appropriate authorities. Hence, no provision is considered necessary in the above financial results," it said.

Shares of the company today closed at Rs 73.35 apiece on the BSE, down 0.61% from the previous close.
