While GST is a landmarkreform its implementation posed several short-term challenges to the industry creating asubdued trade sentiment. Your Company navigated through this macroeconomic shift withagility. This is reflected in our strong performance during the Financial Year. Wedelivered Sales of Rs. 2455 crores up by 10% versus a year ago on a comparable* basis andrecorded a Profit After Tax (PAT) of Rs. 375 crores. Our continued focus on strengtheningbusiness fundamentals and improving productivity enabled us to achieve sustainable growthduring this challenging period.
