Strong performance by services and realty segment led to a 27% y-o-y growth in Ebitda to `4,000 crore.

Consequently, the Ebitda margins also expanded by 30 basis points to 11.2% during the quarter.
However, company’s fresh order intake declined 12% y-o-y to Rs 42,200 crore due to deferment of project awards in transportation infrastructure, heavy civil infrastructure and power businesses, leading to delays.
