Adani Transmission on Friday recorded a 66.52 per cent rise in consolidated net profit at Rs 355.40 crore for April-June quarter of FY21 as against a profit of Rs 213.42 crore in the corresponding period of last fiscal. Total income in the given quarter was Rs 2,542.84 crore as opposed to Rs 2,889.74 crore in the same period last year, Adani Transmission said in an exchange filing.
The electricity distribution losses June quarter this fiscal were recorded at 13.47 per cent as against 7.78 per cent in the same period last year. Adani Transmission said that the transmission lines are operating at 99.9 per cent availabilities and there is no adverse impact on billing.
Even as the power demand remained muted on account of lower consumption by industrial and commercial consumers due to coronavirus lockdown, it was slightly offset by the retail demand, the company added.
