The Share price of L&T closed 2.6 percent higher at Rs 1,376.45 a piece before the results were announced.

The company spoke about GST, IBC and other disruptions it faced in the financial year 2017-18. "With tax revenues estimated to show buoyancy through nominal GDP growth and widening of the tax base, budgetary allocations for infrastructure are scheduled to increase although the short term focus of the government could well be on development of rural India through social welfare schemes," it said.

It further said, "A revival of stressed business through the IBC is targeted at progressive resolution of the twin balance sheet problems and is the first step in facilitating increased credit lines to kick start private sector capex."
