Further, we are seeing COVID cases come down, which will give a major relief to the industry and our customers. The effective vaccination campaign driven by the Government of India will encourage workers to return to construction sites and help speed up manufacturing, which will likely to boost domestic demand" said Mr VR Sharma, Managing Director, JSPL.
