Continuing with the steady performance from last fiscal, SITI reported its Operating EBITDA at Rs.735 Mn in Q1 FY21 despite Severe lock down norms and Containment Zones, impacted the normal business operations. Siti performance has been also adversely effected by the deadly cyclone "AMPHAN" in the East Indian territory where Siti has a very prominent stronghold.

SITI further expanded its foothold in the broadband business to three new tier-2 cities in Q1. SITI has continued to update its systems and processes across multiple touchpoints to be fully compliant to the New Tariff regime. The company has continued to work with all stake-holders, be it the Regulator, Broadcasters, LCOs and above all its esteemed customers to deliver its services.
While commenting on the results, Mr. Anil Malhotra, CEO of SITI Networks Limited mentioned: "The ministry of information and broadcasting has included cable services under essential services to provide uninterrupted-cable-services and SITI has performed significantly well in view of the world wide impact of Covid-19 under severe lockdown in the entire country and migration of urban population in Q1FY21. Furthermore, Cyclone Amphan in our strong hold territory of Eastern India have also impacted our business during the Q1FY21. However, with key focus on our operational efficiencies, our employees, LCOs and their respective families got infected and some lost their lives too but they ensured seamless connectivity on the ground in pandemic. This paves the way for strong recovery and growth in the coming times."
