While modestly acknowledging the performance, Dr MP Agarwal – Chairman told fibre2fashion, “We attribute this performance to strong export orders and also to growth in the domestic markets. But the volatile market conditions have definitely playing havoc with our operations”.
When quizzed on being able to extend the performance into the new fiscal year, he optimistically said, “We would like to maintain the same momentum. But looking at the current market conditions like, ever increasing yarn prices and uncertain markets, the momentum looks uncertain. Yet we are confident that market conditions would improve in the new fiscal year”.
