Be it a natural calamity like Kerala floods, Chennai floods or the like; our Group has always tried to do its best by helping as many poor & needy people as possible at ground level. Even in his recent address to the nation, Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji urged all Indians to help as many poor people as possible. Inspired by all this, our Regional, Zonal & Branch Teams are doing some phenomenal and highly commendable work. And most importantly, they are doing all this relief work while taking all necessary precautions like maintaining safe distance, being well-protected by wearing face masks, hand gloves and sanitizing themselves repeatedly. This has truly been a very humbling experience”
