Lower gas prices also contributed to lower topline and bottom line.

This impairment loss may be reversed in future as and when there is increase in crude.oil and gas price. However, PAT for Q2 FY’21 has increased by 480% i.e. from ₹ 496  crore in Q1 FY’21 to ₹ 2,878 crore in Q2 FY’21 due to recovery of crude oil price.
