Q3 EBITDA was in line with the corresponding prior quarter at Rs. 2,375 crore, reflecting improved operational efficiencies, marginally higher metal prices and premiums and improved sales realization due to INR depreciation, which were partially offset by lower by-product realizations. Q3 FY2013 EBITDA was lower compared to Q2 FY2013, impacted by lower power sales and lower by-product credits.
