He said the company’s growth in the first quarter has been 12.2 per cent, while the industry grew at around 9.5 per cent. . Srivastava said that the demand has remained very strong in the current financial year so far and the April-June period has been the best quarter for the industry. “Going forward, we believe volume-wise growth will be sustained as bookings remain strong, but growth may slow due to a base effect,” he added.
