My dear colleagues and valued members of the Reliance Group family,
These are unmatched times for us all– our company, our friends and families, our society, our nation and the entire world. The devastating COVID-19 pandemic is transforming, maybe irrevocably, the way we interact, live and work. Declining to discriminate in between class and caste, area and religion, neighborhood or nation, this invisible, lethal enemy has actually challenged us all in unpredicted myriad methods.
It’s been over a week given that the lockdown announced by our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. This has actually been a time of fantastic learning and, more crucial,’re-learning’. Working from home for the first time has been a paradigm shift for lots of– that is certainly true for me personally. Adoption of innovation is no longer an option but an imperative to promote virtual collaboration. Ending up being self-directed and independent and utilizing the digital universe to attain our goals is the urgency of our brave brand-new business principles.
In this time of catastrophic churn, I write this note to say how humbled I am by your deep commitment and work ethic. It makes me exceptionally happy to see you all coming together as an organic entity, building innovative and collaborative methods to support our company, its consumers and society at large.
Indeed, workers of Dependence Group have actually distinguished themselves at the forefront of the battle versus COVID-19.
For example, our Sasan plant in Singrauli is supplying power at the most affordable tariff to over 130 million clients across 7 states. Even more, the Rosa plant and other solar plant systems are providing power to over 20 million clients across India. I applaud our colleagues in these plants who continue to deal with utmost caution and diligence to guarantee power to all essential services, consisting of health centers, main health centres, pharmaceutical business, business making test packages, ventilators and ICU equipment, and food and beverage business.
Likewise, our coworkers in Delhi Discoms are ensuring that over 43 lakh consumers, including the important governance structures of nationwide catastrophe management, medical establishments and the Central Federal government, are able to operate without disruption.
In our roads service, our employees are making sure the smooth transport of necessary products with safe, safe and obstruction-free roads. This is critical as most of our roadways are on high traffic density corridors and on the Golden Quadrilateral spread across 6 states.
World over, this is a time when health care workers are showing to be courageous gladiators. I am pleased to inform you that the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Health Center in Mumbai has actually been identified as one of the critical centres for seclusion, treatment and extensive care of COVID-19. Dedicated beds have actually been determined and our staff trained and licensed for the difficult task of dealing with the illness head-on. My unique thanks to Tina and her whole group at the hospital. I would also like to acknowledge our security and upkeep personnel across India in various areas who are working to safeguard and protect the company’s possessions.
While we continue to deal with mechanisms to guarantee service continuity, our topmost concern is the health, safety and well-being of each of you and your families. We have actually rigorously followed all government regulations with regard to personal health, social distancing, work from house and complete lockdown. Concurrently, we are planning our financials to make sure all workers, whether legal or on the rolls, get their incomes on time, with no deduction owing to the lockdown.
Looking ahead, the Reliance Group’s presence in important infra sectors puts a greater obligation on us to emerge quickly from this crisis and to add to developing a new India. I firmly think our staff members, with their undaunted enthusiasm, can-do mindset and first-responder mindset, will take the lead as we reconstruct our facilities and accelerate the completion of our activities to preserve our timelines.
As we take our primary steps to reboot and recharge our pursuit of growth and fulfilment, each people will require to deal with for ourselves, both personally and professionally, the brand-new standards we will need to imbibe and follow in the age of COVID-19. For much of us, our home will be our new default workplace battle station.Personally, I am fortunate to have Anmol and Anshul by my side at this time; their continuous existence and assistance and, of course, smooth understanding of the demands of the digital age are showing to be indispensable.
In the coming days, I propose to connect to you once again on how we can operationalise our work so that we reach new heights in performance, expense and quality.
My precious father Padma Vibhushan and Karmayogi Dhirubhai Ambani notoriously said, “Pursue your objectives even in the face of difficulties, and convert hardships into chances.” These words have unique resonance for all of us today. While we applaud the frontline warriors amongst us, and in society– from health care employees to vital service providers– let us also look within, remain safe and healthy, focus on our proficiencies, hone our abilities, and play our part in making sure a brighter, more secure tomorrow, for the company and our country.
I stand with you, by you and for you, as we work, discover and grow.Together, we can and will get rid of.
