The debt-ridden company has been in the focus lately over equity funding expectations.

We are making good progress, and we expect to conclude these discussions in the coming quarter.”

The chief executive also mentioned, “Promoters have already given support for Rs 2,000 crore of equity, some external equity needs to be tied up. And with that, the bank funding will also be tied up. So, we expect to conclude all these funding arrangements in the coming quarters. And once that happens, then we will be able to continue our investments.”
