“We have been able to sustain the growth momentum as we closed the last quarter registering a 73 per cent growth in domestic sales, when compared to the sales in the corresponding period last year (January-March 2020). In fact, last month witnessed the highest ever domestic sales in the month of March since 2013,” TKM Senior Vice President Naveen Soni said in a statement.

The company”s sales performance in the last quarter proved to be better than the sales in the festive season of the third quarter (October- December 2021), he added.
