Good morning, people!
Yesterday, the bears woke up from a slumber at the end of the trading session, and dragged the markets lower. But today is another day. So let’s start the day afresh with some top stories.
⭐ ABFRL’s Fashion-able recovery 👗
Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail (ABFRL) witnessed robust demand recovery in the March quarter. The company's revenue rose 25% over the pre-pandemic levels and in comparison to the same quarter last year. Its revenue stood at ₹2,282 crore in Q4FY22. This helped the company turn a profit of ₹31.9 crore, compared to a net loss of ₹195.8 crore in the same period a year ago.
⭐ The perfect blend ⛽
The cabinet has approved rescheduling of the target for blending 20% ethanol in petrol. The initial deadline of 2030 has now been advanced to 2025-26. With this move, the country aims to increase the production of biofuel and reduce import of petroleum products. About 10% ethanol is blended in petrol currently.
⭐ Economic revival on track 😎
Global financial intelligence and analytics company Moody’s Analytics has said that India’s economy is on the right track post the pandemic. It added that it doesn’t expect the Russia-Ukraine conflict to impact the recovery. The analytics company expects India’s real GDP to grow 8.2% in the current fiscal year.
