As you are aware, we are developing underground mining operations at Rampura Agucha mine and also developing Kayar mine. During the quarter, we achieved significant progress in both these developments and we are here to deliver commercial production from both these assets from next year. As we have mentioned before, our open cast mining operation at Rampura Agucha will continue uninterrupted while underground mining development is going on and production start next year.Just to reiterate, at the back of using the best-in-class mechanization, productivity and large scale mining operations, and of course, cost-benchmarked structure, management structure, we believe that Rampura Agucha mine, underground mine operations, it should be possible for us to deliver costs lower than current operating costs. I’d like to mention one more thing regarding Hindustan Zinc, while in the today’s atmosphere, where rupee is depreciated significantly impacting business in many ways, here is one company, Hindustan Zinc, which is only deriving benefit of depreciating rupee.. It’s very good to see a company, which is getting its true value from delivering expanded capacity.
