Tata Chemicals booked an exceptional loss of ₹963 crore. The loss was primarily related to operations in the United Kingdom. “The ₹963 crore impairment is primarily due to unfavorable market conditions and reduced demand for Soda Ash in Europe and the persistently low pricing outlook in the jurisdiction based on which the cash flow projections have been revised downward,” the company disclosed in the exchange filing.
