CRISIL Ratings has combined the business and financial risk profiles of Ambuja Cements and ACC Ltd . This is because, post the restructuring between ACC and Ambuja Cements, ACC became a subsidiary of Ambuja Cements.
At around 10:12 AM, Ambuja Cements was trading higher at Rs335.20 surging 0.96% on the BSE.
