“This is one of the most challenging phases of the pandemic that we are witnessing. The second wave has hit us hard and has hit us fast. It is in times like these that we have to stand by our family. Each and every employee is part of the L&T family and we will leave no stone unturned in helping our employees and their families affected by the pandemic. We have collectively taken this decision to provide some relief to our employees which will hugely reduce the burden and stress of those affected, at least financially. There is no replacement for a loss of life, however with these Insurance Covers we aim to at least provide the much needed support and help to the families of our employees in case the need arises. We have to stay strong and united to fight this through and move past this phase with strength and vigour.” Said, Mr SN Subrahmanyan, CEO & MD, Larsen & Toubro .
