EBITDA increased to ₹6 crore, against loss of ₹30 lakh in Q1 FY21.

The recent Production Linked Incentive scheme announced by the government is a major step, and being one of the leading man-made fibre and technical textile players, the company stands to gain from incentives for manufacture and export of specific textile products, he said.
