State-run REC reported an 8 per cent Y-o-Y growth in its consolidated net profit at ₹2,454.16 crore in April-June quarter of the current financial year. On a sequential basis, net profit was higher by 6.6 per cent.

“With revival of the economy and impetus of the government, REC has been able to sanction new projects worth ₹59,895 crore in Q1 FY23. With a healthy disbursement of ₹12,442 crore during Q1FY23, REC’s loan book has increased to ₹3.88 lakh crore as of June 30, 2022,” REC said in a statement.

With a strong order book and capital adequacy of 24.78 per cent as at June 30, 2022, the company has sufficient cushion and ample opportunities to support the future growth, it said.
