The company stated, "The decrease in revenue was primarily due to lower volumes and realisation across key products in O2C segment. The Retail segment also reported lower revenue on account of the effect of the pandemic.

Commenting on the results, Mukesh D Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries Limited said, "We have registered robust recovery in O2C and retail segment, and resilient growth in Digital Services business. Sustained high utilization rates across sites and improvement in downstream product deltas, as well as transportation fuel margins, aided O2C earnings growth. Our consumer businesses have proved to be a digital and physical lifeline for the nation in these challenging times.
