The company's cement production was down 10.79 percent to 17.51 lakh tonnes in the quarter compared with 19.63 lakh tonnes in the year-ago period.


"The drop in volumes was contributed primarily by the affect of demonetisation in the key markets of North and Central India where the company's operations are concentrated," it said.


Total expenses of the company were down 8.33 percent to Rs 827.36 crore during the quarter against Rs 902.64 crore in the year-ago period.
