AHMEDABAD: Adani Power has posted net loss worth Rs 793 crore in the quarter ended June 30, 2012 due to fuel scarcity and climbing imported coal rates. The company has seen net profit of Rs 177 crore during the corresponding period of financial year 2011-12 financial year.
The overall income in the June quarter climbed 79% to Rs 1,464 crore as against Rs 819 crore during the same period last year.
