During the quarter, revenue rose by 16 per cent year on year to Rs 2,596 crore from Rs 2,237 crore a year ago, the company said. Finance cost during the July-September quarter was up 7 per cent YoY to Rs 204 crore, due to additional borrowings for ongoing capital expenditure.

At its meeting on Friday, Parth Jindal was inducted into the company's board, JSW Energy said. Jindal, 32, son of JSW Group chairman Sajjan Jindal, is expected to play an active role in the company's transition to renewable energy. In August, a unit of JSW Energy had said it was acquiring 1.75 Gw of renewable energy assets from Mytrah Energy in a Rs 10,530-crore deal, among the largest in the sector. The acquisition would fast-track the company’s ambition of having a capacity of 10 Gw by FY25.
