“Company’s bottom line improved following approval of tax incentive by Gujarat government under the state’s Textile Policy. The interest subsidy benefit has not only improved but also resulted in better liquidity conditions for the company. We look at higher capacity utilisation in the coming period due to expected revival in demand of denim and believe that our margins will improve in the near to medium term,” said NDL CEO Deepak Chiripal.
A part of Ahmedabad-based industrial conglomerate Chiripal Group, NDL commenced its operations in 1994 with textile trading business and forayed into textile manufacturing in 2004. The company currently engages in manufacturing of denim fabric, shirting fabric and yarn.
