I am pleased to report strong growth in our digital services and retail segments. Our O2C business has proven its resilience and has demonstrated strong recovery despite volatility in the energy markets.”
“Our relentless focus on customer satisfaction and service has led to higher engagement and increased footfalls, driving robust revenue and earnings figures across our consumer businesses. The gradual opening of economies coupled with sustained high utilization rates across sites and the improvement in transportation fuel margins and volumes have bolstered our O2C earnings,” he added.
Reliance Retail opened 793 stores during the quarter under its various brands and currently has 15,196 physical stores operational.
