As part of its wide-ranging, empathetic response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Mahindra Group donated a 1000 LPM Oxygen Plant to Silver Jubilee Sub-District Hospital in Baramati, Maharashtra. The Oxygen Plant was inaugurated by Shri Ajit Pawar, Hon’ble Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Reiterating Mahindra’s commitment to help India fight the COVID-19 pandemic, Ruzbeh Irani, President – Group Human Resources and Communications, said: “COVID-19 is a health crisis unlike any other that we have faced in the past.

We, at Mahindra, have partnered with governments to scale up medical infrastructure and provide oxygen plants, oxygen concentrators, ambulances, and set up temporary COVID-19 care centers.”
