The credit ratings of Jindal Steel and Power Limited have been upgraded by leading rating agency Crisil to stable outlook, it said.
"The credit rating by three leading rating agencies CRISIL, ICRA and CARE is a clear reflection of the promise for growth by JSPL. The company is well poised to continue the superlative performance and growth curve during this fiscal," Naushad Ansari, CEO, Steel Business, JSPL said.
During January-March 2018, JSPL's consolidated loss widened to Rs 424.69 crore from Rs 100.01 crore in the year-ago-quarter.
However, on standalone basis, JSPL has reported Rs 145 crore profit after tax during the last quarter of 2017-18 fiscal, Ansari said.
This has happened after quite number of quarters, he said adding "there are other areas also where the company has done well".
