The margin decrease resulted from increased contributions from other segments like catering, state teertha, and tourism, which are lower-margin compared to internet ticketing.

Internet ticketing’s contribution to total revenue dropped to 29.9% from 32.8% in the previous quarter. However, in terms of profitability, this segment still accounted for 73.8% of the company’s total profit during the quarter.
