We believe in

caring for the

future and make

life more fulfilling

for people

everywhere

In sync with the greater good of the society, we are committed to “energising the grassroots” as a cornerstone of achieving Sustainable Development Goals. With a firm belief that the edifice of sustainability is built by conscientious efforts, we have nurtured and practiced a philosophy of social handholding to invigorate communities.

In our quest for greater social inclusion, we are crafting, deploying and supporting a host of initiatives, largely in various core areas – Education, Healthcare, Eradicating Poverty and society welfare. These pillars of social advancement also represent key indicators of the Human Development Index.

In addition to these we are sensitive to the greater needs of our nation and additionally support projects for preservation of our heritage, conservation of natural resources and disaster relief and rehabilitation among others.

We contribute to the well being of people by introducing sustainable measures and providing assistance to institutions and welfare organisations, across India, reaching well beyond our business locations, impacting the lives of marginalised communities

As a responsible corporate citizen, we meet our obligations to society in a number of ways. On the education front, we offer vital support to schools and trusts to help them meet their commitment to underprivileged students. In the area of social welfare, we work closely with non-government organisations (NGOs) to offer the economically disadvantaged food, health care, and other life-support facilities. And, of course, we continue to make substantial monetary contributions to the Indian government to help it in its fight against the corona contagion.
