We believe in conducting all our CSR programmes with a rigorous focus to ensure the right outreach and impact. Our key strength lies in serving the rural underserved. I am confident that Bharat Sanjeevani programme with its innovative, sustainable and impactful model will bring a remarkable improvement to the lives of dairy farmers in Tamil Nadu.”
