The subsidy outgo for the quarter stood at Rs 123 bn, lower than Rs 141.7 bn in 4QFY12. In FY13, the bottomline declined by 16.7% YoY, mainly on account of high subsidy payout.

The generic drug maker Cipla Ltd has announced its results for the quarter ending March 2013. The company has reported a 2.4 % year on year (YoY) growth in sales for the quarter.
