Analysts believe that growing population along with increasing electrification, and per capita usage will further provide impetus to the rising demand for electricity. Many power sector reforms are being introduced by the Government to bring efficiency, promote decarbonisation, and ensure (24X7) reliable, and affordable power supply.

With industrial and commercial sector together accounting for nearly 50 per cent of the country’s electricity consumption, the resumption of economic activity post relaxation of pandemic restrictions has made a positive impact on the overall demand.

The gradual and calibrated resumption of economic activity will further support the growth of electricity demand, asserted analysts.

Credit ratings agency ICRA has shared a 'stable' outlook on the rating of Indo Tech as they expect the company to maintain its credit profile, backed by expected sustained revenue growth, and comfortable debt coverage indicators, and liquidity position.
