The ‘Consumer and Industrial” segment is made by aggregating the wire and cables, lighting, luminaries, and switchgear businesses into one segment, whereas the ‘Metering and Systems’ now includes the company’s metering, systems, and projects business.
HPL’s Consumer Electrical has seen a healthy increase in network expansion of dealers and retailers, especially in tier 2 and tier 3 cities.
The consolidated current order book stands at Rs 832 crore (net of GST).
Gautam Seth, Joint Managing Director, and CFO said, “Despite a challenging economic environment and various geo-political uncertainties, we have demonstrated robust performance in both the business segments and delivered strong numbers. During Q1FY23, we have received very strong and healthy inquiries about smart meters, as both the public and private sectors are seeing a great economic benefit in deploying next-generation meters. On the order execution front, the work is running at a fast pace which should lead to the timely completion of the pipeline.”
