"As the world goes through a period of increased uncertainty and hyperinflation in commodity prices caused by geopolitical conflict, India's energy sector has also faced price adversity. However, pragmatic policy decisions and abundant natural resources have shielded the economy from its worst impact." MD Anil Sardana said.

The stock closed at Rs 329.9 per share, on Friday.
