Announcing this, LN Mittal said: "No country will be immune and for those like India, with a vast population and at a critical point in its development, the impact could be very serious." Collaboration in times like these is critical, he said adding governments, companies and citizens must therefore work together to pool their resources, to ensure every action is taken to combat the pandemic as swiftly as possible.

"Both our operations in India commit equally to a total of Rs 100 crore to Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situation Fund (PM-CARES] for the ongoing relief efforts countrywide," he said. Additionally the operations are contributing through supporting daily meals of over 5,000 as well as providing food kits to more than 30,000 people; augmenting ambulance services and preparing care centres in location close to the production facilities;h sharing knowledge on preventive measures and providing sanitation kits and PPE in the communities where they operate. All employees will continue to receive a salary for their work during this period, he said.
