The company had implemented 3 to 8 per cent price hikes across the battery categories in the first quarter, Amritanshu Khaitan, MD of the company, told Business Line. “The outlook appears to be stable. However, the delay in the monsoon and hardening of metal (zinc) prices may offset partially the margin expansion of the current quarter”, the company said in a statement.
