Our board has approved the installation of another rooftop solar power project of 15 MW plant for captive consumption, which will aid us in lowering our power costs. Phase 1 capacity addition was successful and was completed in Q2. We haven’t yet noticed enough rationalization, despite the fact that raw material costs decreased this quarter and other input costs decreased from high levels. These pressures are being carefully watched. Overall, compared to the previous quarter, the country’s textile mills are operating at higher capacities, and we anticipate this trend to continue. The demand for textiles and apparel will stabilize as domestic cotton prices start to decline and retailers’ inventories in western nations start to decline.”

As the year goes on, the macro environment will become more favorable. With the government’s support in the form of various schemes and FTAs, as well as the need for the west to lessen its reliance on China, the textile sector will experience a lot of positive developments in the upcoming quarters and years. We continue to befocused on our growth objectives and to capture the immense opportunity that the sector providesboth in India and abroad,” said Mr. Munish Avasthi.
