The gross margin percentage improved to 23% from 10% in last year as a timely purchase of raw materials at competitive prices and the global shortage of imported fine-count yarns helped improve margins.
Furtermore, KTML has sufficient stock for rest of the year, hence margins are expected to be maintained at curent level for FY2021.
