However, the company reported a net loss of ₹12.64 crore for Q2 FY24. In the same quarter last year, the company’s losses stood at ₹3.2 crore. The loss after tax in the September quarter was attributed to several factors, including expedited fees incurred for delayed components, significant investments in scaling up research and development (R&D) teams, the addition of new facilities, and the expansion of manufacturing infrastructure.
