TIL had an unexecuted order book of INR 1,812 mn against INR 2,581 mn in Q3FY10, down 30% Y-o-Y. Management expects pickup
in order inflows on the back of increased infrastructure activities. Through Kharagpur plant (expected to be operational by April 2011), TIL’s capacity is likely to grow 5x, to 100 units a month.
