1990 - Sales turnover was lower at Rs.75.05 crore as compared to the previous year, mainly due to Gulf War and mid stream policy changes in value addition norms for rupee exports to Russia, the chief importer of batteries. Its Kanjur factory was being modernised to produce Type-I battery, designed by Hagen for new generation submarines of the Indian Navy. The proposed modernisation programme of the Vakola factory and Guindy, Chennai was kept in abeyance due to the proposed re-location of the Vakola factory at Taloja. 

1991 - In the industrial batteries group, the company introduced state-of-the-art low maintenance longer life batteries for the stationary and traction applications. In the industrial batteries group, new products offering improved performance were introduced. The performance of mineric cap lamp batteries suffered due to low offtake from Coal India Ltd. 

1992 - Turnover declined to Rs.84.48 crore mainly due to the lockout at the Vakola factory for about ten months. In spite of inflation, higher interest cost, recession in the automotive industry and lockout at Vakola factory with effect from April 21 to May 7 (which was lifted on January 27, 1993), sales turnover went up.
