Drop in power generation

The net power generation at various locations dropped slightly to 4,496 million units during the quarter as against 4,612 million units generated in the same quarter last year. The fall was due to maintenance activities at its Ratnagiri plant. The company states that this was offset by higher sales at Vijayanagar and hydro plants.
