We raise our coverage profit after tax estimates by 7%/4% for FY21E/FY22E.

As per our channel checks, volumes are growing over 10% YoY in North, East and Central India. While demand has remained weak in the South and Maharashtra, it has recovered strongly from the 15-20% YoY decline seen in Q2 FY21
