Nonetheless, we are taking judicious price increase across various product categories to off-set the rising input costs. All the 3 plants continue to operate at high capacity utilisation.
Our continued priority is to focus on growing replacement markets, as we see improved market conditions with higher inoculation levels and sharp recovery in economic activities in the country. We are optimistic on the industry and expect a healthy growth in the coming years".
He further mentioned, "we remain committed to ensure well-being and safety of our employees, associates and society. In this direction, we have launched a relief initiative "JK Cares" programme, to support the family of employees, who lost their lives during the pandemic".
