However, it added that there was a temporary suspension of manufacturing operations at all its 3 manufacturing plants located at Ahmedabad, Barwani and Una between March 25, 2020, and April 21, 2020.

From April 27, 2020, it had resumed operations at all its 3 manufacturing plants and offices after obtaining requisite permissions from the concerned district administration and in compliance with all the safety guidelines and directives issued by the Central and State Governments and local administration to safeguard the employees, labourers and all other stakeholders to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, the company is confident about adapting to the changing business environment. Post-Unlock 1 it had started ramping up its operations and execution activities across its manufacturing facilities and execution sites.

In May this year, the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Inox Wind Infrastructure Services Ltd (IWISL), has sold its entire 51 per cent shareholding in Sri Pavan Energy for about Rs 5.1 lakh.
