Speaking about the company’s performance, Tom Albanese, chief executive officer, Vedanta, said, “Our strategic focus to ramp 
up production across the portfolio namely in zinc, aluminium, power and iron ore businesses throughout the year has supplemented revenue growth.”  
Albanese continued, “In particular, record production levels at zinc and aluminium were well-timed in an environment of strong supply side pressures on both commodities. Our cost management initiatives have helped us deliver strong returns for all our shareholders.”  
One of the highlights of Vedanta’s performance during the year was that the company posted record annual production for aluminium, power, zinc, silver and 
copper. As for its iron ore operations, the company 
said, “We achieved 2.6 million tonnes of the additional production capacity granted in Goa.”
