Name of Company
The Ramco Cements Limited
Rajapalayam Mills Limited
Ramaraju Surgical Cotton Mills Limited
JKR Enterprise Limited
- In India, the opening stock of cotton for the current cotton season 2020-21 (October to September) was historically at a high level of 120 Lakhs Bales due to lower consumption of cotton by Mills in India due to disruptions in manufacturing activities caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
- This, coupled with a higher production estimate of cotton during the current cotton crop season of 360 Lakhs bales has pulled down the cotton prices during the initial cotton season.
- Due to this, CCI has purchased a large volume of cotton under MSP operation, during peak arrivals of cotton bales in the market. However, the sentiment in the markets had slowly turned positive soon after the manufacturing activities started picking up due to relaxations announced by the Government, which was earlier disrupted on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The cotton prices have gone up by more than 30% compared to the price ruled during the initial cotton season. The prices of some of the imported cotton varieties especially the long stable fiber had also increased very steeply to the extent of 40% to 75% within a period of 3 to 4 months' time.
- The Company is focusing to produce more value-added count and in order to meet the quality requirement of value-added counts, more volume high-quality imported cotton has been procured when the prices were cheaper. This strategy has helped the Company to procure diversified varieties of cotton across the globe and to quote competitive prices for yarn, which helped to improve the operating margin in the last quarter of the financial year 2020-21.
Yarn Production & Sale: -
- The production volume has decreased to 44.25 Lakhs Kgs during the financial year 2020-21 as against 48.31 Lakhs Kgs of last year due to lockdown imposed by the Government for 2 months during April 2020 & May 2020.

The Company is taking various steps to expand its market presence both in domestic and international markets and hopes to achieve a higher volume of sales in value-added yarns in the forthcoming years.
- The yarn market in India has bounced back after witnessing a slowdown in the last 2 years. Due to geopolitical factors like trade, the war between the US and China, and the diversion of sourcing textile products by many top global garment brands from China to India boosted the demand for textile products including yarn manufactured in India. Due to good demand from the domestic market, the Company was able to liquidate the yarn stock from₹ 30.34 Crores as on 01-04-2020 to ₹ 8.15 Crores as on 31-03-2021.
