“Our company delivered robust operating and financial results for the quarter despite macro headwinds, with strong growth in earnings on a year-on-year basis. Our integrated refining and petrochemicals business generated strong cash flows in a period of heightened volatility in commodity and currency markets," said Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director at Reliance Industries.

RIL’s consolidated revenues rose 54.5 percent year-on-year basis to Rs1,56,291 crore. The top line jumped due to higher price realisations of petrochemical and refinery products led by 44.5 percent increase in Brent crude price.According to the company, the increased revenue also reflected in higher volumes with the commissioning and ramp-up of new petrochemical facilities.
