In FY22, consolidated total revenue from operations stood at Rs 23,455.49 crores as against Rs 24,774.62 crores in FY21, the company said, adding that its board has approved an interim dividend of Rs 4.50 per equity share of Re 1 for the year 2021-22.

“We continue to see volume growth in the complex generics segment and are also making significant progress in the complex development programmes, including biosimilars. Further, we are also on-track for completing the PLI project as per the committed timelines,” Reddy said.
