Commenting on the results, Gautam Hari Singhania, chairman ans managing director of Raymond Limited, in a statement said: “The business was significantly impacted from mid-March due to nationwide lockdown, which resulted in disrupting manufacturing operations and temporary closure of all our retail stores. It has been a challenging phase and Raymond has taken requisite measures to recalibrate business operations that will enable us to benefit from increased agility and effectively combat market volatility.
“In our efforts to contribute to the fight against Covid-19, Raymond has launched a comprehensive range of PPE offerings and sanitization products that is receiving an encouraging response. As the Indian economy is gradually unlocking, it is heartening to witness the encouraging consumer response post re-opening up of our stores,” he added.
