Lockdown in various parts of the world severely dented demand for automobile sector in the first quarter of the fiscal. Our topmost concern and focus during this period were the well-being and safety of our employees across all our plant locations and we worked on a war footing to put robust safety protocols in place.  We thank our team members globally who worked very hard under these challenging conditions to ensure uninterrupted supplies to our customers.

However, even though first quarter was a wash out, economies have started witnessing green shoots of recovery. Our teams and plants across the globe have also resumed operations and are working closely with our customers to fulfil their requirements. We now expect demand for the auto industry to gain momentum in the coming quarters of this fiscal year”
