We estimate refining throughput of 16.5MTPA, (16.2MT in Q3). Petchem profitability will improve QoQ due to demand recovery post China reopening. We expect steady Jio performance (3.3%QoQ revenue growth and 2.1% QoQ ARPU hike), while retail segment profitability should be resilient."

Accordingly, Datta believes RIL's earnings to decrease QoQ due to lower GRMs (adj for windfall tax). Jio and retail performance will be steady.
