While the Company has been engaged in Make in India for the last 20 years, it has consistently backed its manufacturing prowess with cutting edge R&D. While the manufacturing units have improved efficiencies and reduced cost of operations and follow a ‘no manufacturing defect’ pledge, the R&D Centres in India are contributing to global innovations. The company believes in deep consumer insights, which are incorporated in future product development. This initiative is known by the name of MAKE FOR INDIA.
