TOTAL INCOME, OPERATING INCOME, AND NET PROFIT remained more or less same through the past 4 years. The period of 2007 operating profit and net profit came down drastically due to the increased cost of input. The increased input cost was transferred to the customers.
Fertilizer sector operates in the heavily regulated environment. We expect certain deregulation of the sector which can put fertilizer sector into back into growth phase.
