Other Income includes service income of Rs 483 m a rise of 14% over previous year. The marginal rise in margins seems to be on the back of new products, especially Magnex and Hepashield. However, even in new product launches the company is facing stiff price competition. The rise in margins has also been helped by presence of VRS cost in last year to the tune of Rs 23.9 m.

At the current market price of Rs 458, the stock is trading at a P/e of 21x FY02 earnings. The company has declared 50% dividend for the year.
