As the impact of COVID-19 was felt towards the last fortnight of the financial year 2020, we saw some impact on our performance for the month of March & April 2020. However, with lockdowns restrictions easing out we believe growth to return to normalcy in the coming quarters considering lot of opportunities in the sector.
