Consolidated revenue stood atRs 6,881 crore in the fourth quarter of 2019-20 compared to Rs 7,597 crore in the corresponding quarter last year mainly due to delay in project execution in solar EPC (engineering procurement and construction) business on account ofCOVID19, lower power demand and lower coal price", it said.
