Our manufacturing units in Sikkim were also impacted due to lockdowns. In the context of demand constraints, our electricals and durables segments have performed well. Commodity cost inflation has been significant in recent months. While we have been able to offset a major part of it, some more pricing actions are being planned. We expect the business to bounce back strongly in the coming quarters”.
