“Higher input costs, volatility in business environment as well as dynamics of global demand-supply has impacted NALCO's profit margins in spite of the fact that the company has registered growth in several fronts in FY 2022-23,” CMD Sridhar Patra told shareholders at the AGM.

“The focus of the company is now on the early completion of the 5th stream refinery project and development of the Pottangi Bauxite Mines...,” Patra said.

Odisha-based NALCO is one of the largest integrated aluminium producers in the country.

It had posted a 40-per cent decline in consolidated net profit to Rs 333.76 crore for the June quarter, due to lower income.

The company had registered a net profit of Rs 557.91 crore in the year-ago quarter, it said in a regulatory filing last month.
