Domestic steel prices remained under pressure during the quarter as India imported higher volumes of finished steel from top producer China.
 
Total revenue from operations fell to Rs 58,687 crore from Rs 62,962 crore in the quarter, owing to a nearly 4% drop in its mainstay India business, which contributed at least 62% of the overall revenue.
 
The company also incurred exceptional charges of Rs 649 crore due to the closing of its Sukinda Chromite Block in Odisha and other expenses around its European operations.
 
Separately, the Tata Group-operated firm will be raising Rs 30 crore through issue of debt securities, it said on Wednesday.
