The total income of the company stood at Rs 1,361.62 crore in the quarter a healthy 18% growth QOQ.
Ashwini Kumar CEO Suzlon in a statement mentioned the pricing pressure due to the hike in goods and service tax (GST) from 5% to 12%, and the increase in the price of commodities and freight charges will have a further adverse impact on the company’s margins.

However, we are staying vigilant since global uncertainty around COVID-19 continues to persist. We have achieved installations of 113 MW in H1 FY22 and are focused on servicing our existing order book which stands at 1091 MW.
