Castrol indicated that despite encountering a slight dip in consumer demand initially, it still managed to achieve an increase in revenue. In its statement, Castrol India said, “While we experienced initial softness in consumer demand, we delivered a 2% revenue growth, demonstrating the effectiveness of our strategic approach.”

Deepesh Baxi, Chief Financial Officer of Castrol India Limited said, “Our strategic initiatives and resilient approach have positioned us well in navigating the dynamic market landscape.”

As far as the future is concerned, he added, “As we continue to focus on driving growth, we remain committed to prudent financial management and strategic investments to sustain our momentum in the quarters ahead.”
