Commenting on the board appointments, Mr. S N Subrahmanyan, CEO & Managing Director, L&T said: "Internationally, the hydrocarbon and power businesses are generally viewed as a cluster, and L&T will now adopt the same integrated strategy. Mr. Sarma's experience and business insights especially in the intensively competitive Gulf markets are going to add great value to our Energy thrust. Both Mr. Desai and Mr. Madhava Das bring to the Board their expertise and competence across diverse fields both in the domestic and overseas markets, that will add a cutting edge as we look to take our Company's business to the next level.

Mr. T Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Utilities) said: I have always believed that one of the pillars that L&T is founded on is meritocracy and this honour of being inducted on to the Board is a reflection of that value. L&T has done unique work both in power transmission distribution and in urban rural electrification works. We have taken Power & Water Infrastructure to the hinterland of the country and have brought the essentials of water and light to many citizens of the country.
