Despite a 17.27 percent YoY decline in revenue from operations to ₹1,837.17 crore, the company's robust earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) of ₹310 crore, up 51 percent YoY, significantly contributed to the stock's performance.</p>

<h3><strong>Dividend Announcement and Capex Plans</strong></h3>
