NEW DELHI : Torrent Power Ltd on Tuesday reported a 88% year-on-year (YoY) rise in net profit at 694.54 crore for the third quarter that ended December 31, 2022. 

In the corresponding quarter last year, the company posted a net profit of 369.45 crore.

In the December quarter, total revenue from operations stood at 6,442.8 crore during the period under review, up 71% against 3,767.4 crore in the corresponding period of the preceding fiscal.

“The major reasons for the improvement in the total comprehensive income for the quarter on a y-o-y basis are an increase in contribution from existing licensed distribution businesses due to improved performance and contribution from the operations in Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu which has been taken over from April 1, 2022 and increase in contribution from franchised distribution business due to reduction in T&D losses on account of continuous and sustained focus on Loss reduction activities," it said.

In a separate statement, the company said its board has approved an interim dividend of 22 per equity share (including 13 per equity share as a special dividend) for FY 2022-23. 

Torrent Power, the 14,258-crore integrated power utility of the 23,500-crore Torrent Group, is one of the largest companies in the country’s power sector with presence across the entire power value chain -- generation, transmission and distribution.
