Expenses increased to Rs 1,809.4 crore in the quarter under review from Rs 1,601.6 crore in the year-ago period.
The company said its operations were impacted during the June quarter due to lockdown and other emergency measures imposed by governments in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
"...However, the impact assessment of Covid-19 is a continuing process given the uncertainties associated with its nature and duration and accordingly the impact may be different from that estimated as at the date of approval of these financial results," it said.
The company will continue to monitor any material changes to future economic conditions, it said, adding that BASF India
has resumed operations in a phased manner in line with directives from the authorities.
