Essar aligns to decisive measures taken by the Government against Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19)

“We commend the efforts of the Administration to fight the spread of Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) in India and respect its decision to enforce a further 21 days of lockdown. We are completely aligned with Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s belief that social distancing is the only way to keep Covid-19 from spreading. As one of India’s largest corporate houses with thousands of direct and indirect employees, we have adopted decisive measures to ensure social distancing, while securing the safety and well-being of our people and their families, which is of paramount importance to us. This includes the option to work from home, a step that was introduced several days before the imposition of lockdown. Our CSR teams are working overtime to service the needy and provide necessary support to communities in affected parts of the country.”
