Similarly, its net profit experienced a substantial decline to 64 crore, representing a significant 53% year-on-year decrease.

For the full fiscal year, the company posted an 8% and 51% year-on-year reduction in standalone revenue and net profit, amounting to 2,450 crore and 285 crore, respectively.

However, it noted that it had exceeded its margin guidance despite these challenges.
