Further the Company sold1810.09 tonnes (2170.46 tonnes) of waste cotton of which exports were nil tonnes (160.68tonnes).
Due to decrease in demand for yarn in export market there was glut in yarn availablein domestic market. As a result the price of yarn declined sharply eroding the operatingprofits even though cotton prices also declined during the year.
The Wind Mills with aggregate installed capacity of 10.65 MW generated 161.04 lakhunits (168.37 lakh units) of Wind Electricity during the year. The entire power generatedby the wind mills were utilized for captive consumption at the textile mill.
