As a market leader in the refractory industry, we have set a benchmark by achieving 100% utilization of Corporate Social Responsibility budget. We took up 11 major community development projects, positively impacting the lives of more than 100,000 underprivileged people. The activities were focused in the vicinity of our operations, particularly in regions like Visakhapatnam, Cuttack and Bhiwadi to promote healthcare, education, infrastructure development and women empowerment. About 51% of our CSR spend last year was dedicated for the implementation in the priority focus area of Education and Health Care.
