<p><strong>Vedanta:</strong> A top executive said during an analyst conference that Vedanta Resources, the parent company of Mumbai-based mining behemoth Vedanta Limited, intends to cut its debt by as much as $3 billion over the next three years. In the following years, the corporation does not intend to roll over its debts. “Deleveraging is the first priority. Over the next three years, we want to cut $3 billion off of Vedanta Resources’ debt. At an analysts’ meeting, Navin Agarwal, Vice Chairman of Vedanta Ltd. and a member of the Promoter Group, said that the company’s pre-growth capex cash flow is expected to be USD 3.5–4 billion for the fiscal year 2025, which is sufficient for secured debt maturities of USD 1.5 billion, according to PTI.</p>

A board meeting has been arranged by the corporation for March 7th, 2024–2025, to review the borrowing strategy. According to Adhikari, LICHFL anticipates reaching a net profit of Rs 5,000 crore by the end of the current fiscal year as a result of strong loan demand and the growth of its non-core operations.</p>
<p><strong>Signature Global:</strong> On Sunday, the real estate company said that it has sold more than 1,000 units in its opulent Gurugram project, bringing in over Rs 3,600 crore. The strong demand for residential real estate, especially in the luxury market, is credited with this achievement. The business revealed in a regulatory filing that pre-launch sales for its most recent luxury residential development project, “DE LUXE-DXP,” situated in Gurugram’s Sector 37D, exceeded Rs 3,600 crore.</p>
<p><strong>Reliance Industries:</strong> Two people familiar with the plans said that the business, led by Mukesh Ambani, intends to pursue pumped storage projects (PSP) for hydroelectric power, with a strong emphasis on sustainable energy. According to those with knowledge, Reliance New Energy, the company’s subsidiary, is aggressively looking for appropriate places for these projects. One of the two said, “RIL is in the process of identifying potential PSP sites and intends to participate significantly in bidding for these projects.”</p>
<p><strong>Godrej Properties:</strong> Contracts to build a township project in North Bengaluru have been concluded by the real estate developer. The project would use a profit-sharing concept and will take up 62 acres of land. It is anticipated to have a booking value of Rs 5,000 crore and would provide 5.6 million square feet of saleable space. The business plans to begin the first stage of development on this property in the next fiscal year.</p>
<p><strong>Coal India:</strong> According to Businessline on Saturday, Coal India officials are optimistic about reaching their 780 million tonne output goal for the fiscal year 2023–2024. This claim is especially significant in view of recent media rumors indicating that the coal mining business would miss its goal by 10 million tons. At a stakeholders’ meeting, corporate executives emphasized that earlier remarks about possibly missing the objective had been misconstrued. The purpose of the gathering was to notify producers of mining equipment about the increased demand for their goods. In addition, the business has set a lofty objective for the next year: it wants to produce 838 million tons, a 7.5% increase over the 2023–24 plan.</p>
