Cables and wires companies continued seeing a healthy demand from the real estate and industrial sector, aided by the government’s push for infrastructure development as well as private capex, the report added.

The third quarter results were revealed days after the income tax department said it detected “unaccounted cash sales” of about 1,000 crore following raids on the wires, cables and electrical items manufacturer.

Searches were carried out against the Polycab group last December, leading to seizure of unaccounted cash worth over 4 crore and more than 25 bank lockers were put on restraint.

However, the company had dismissed the reports of I-T searches as rumours in its statement.

“The company asserts its commitment to compliance and transparency, having fully cooperated with the Income Tax department officials during the search proceedings in Dec ’23. The company has not received any communication from the Income Tax department regarding the outcome of the search,” the company had told the bourses in a statement.
