Commenting on the Results, Dinesh Patidar, Chairman and Managing Director said that, “We are glad to declare good financial performance, on account of robust growth in our domestic solar pumps market. The PM-KUSUM scheme has contributed to our growth during the financial year.The scheme has great potential as diesel pumps are unviable for farmers and electric pumps have limitations. We expect to supply more pumps under the scheme.
He further added that, “PM-KUSUM scheme is doing well as in the first year of the implementation, 50,000 solar agricultural pumps were installed across the country against a target of 1.80 lakh set for the 2020-21 fiscal.We had installed 15,000 solar pumps under the scheme. We are expecting more demand during the current financial year and going forward as awareness increases among farmers.For the second year, the government target is 3.20Lakh agriculture solar pumps, which is where we see our growth coming from during the current financial year too.”
He further added that, the company has recommended a dividend of Rs. 8/- per share on a face value of Rs. 10/- per share which is 80%.”
