Grasim Industries total expenses rose by 4 percent to Rs 16,411 crore, as against Rs 17,039 crore in the year-ago period. It has been a resilient September quarter for Grasim due to strong recovery in demand and the government working relentlessly to support home-grown businesses by injecting doses of fiscal and monetary stimulus on a timely basis. The unlock measures across the country led to a steady increase in consumer spending, which the company expects to be further boosted with the onset of the festive season.
Grasim Industries is the largest producer and seller of viscose staple fibre with a market share of almost 100 percent in India.
