profit dropped 64 percent in the July-September quarter.
 
* Citigroup downgrades the stock to 'neutral' from 'buy' saying
earnings were lower than expected due to losses related to the
ongoing transfer of production from Belgium to Hungary, and

rupees, saying Crompton Greaves' cut in fiscal 2013 guidance
hinted at a "bumpy" couple of quarters ahead.

previously expected and that CG will remain range bound unless
