i liked this company, got in early before Carbon Credits were not so known, and earned some money. I will have to look deeper now that you have shared some latest on it. But one different question… you have detailed ratio info on it. Did you manually created all that or have nay source that provides so many details? other than screener.in?

Hi Anirudh,
