Consequently, on the back of rising revenues and better control on costs, our EBITDA also witnessed sharp improvement to reach 37.6 crores & a healthy PAT.

During Q1FY23, we have received very strong and healthy inquiries in smart meters, as both the public and private sectors are seeing great economic benefit in deploying next generation meters. On the order execution front, the work is running at a fast pace which should lead to the timely completion of the pipeline.
