“The sector is witnessing issues on project execution due to some policy issues but there has been some healthy growth in installations over the last year. Wind capacities added in India in H1 2019-20 was at 1,304 MW as compared to 569 MW in H1 2018-19,” Suzlon Group CEO J P Chalasani said in a separate statement.

“Our operations are at a subdued level with a minimal allocation of funding as we are trying to fix our capital structure,” he added.

In August, the debt-laden firm reported its financial results for the first quarter of the fiscal. The company reported that for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, its consolidated net loss narrowed to Rs 336.88 crore in the quarter, on account of lower expenses.
