Jai Shroff, CEO of UPL Ltd. said, “At UPL we are true to our value of being ‘Always Human’ and committed to providing support to the best of our abilities in these tough times. We would contribute in meeting the growing demand for oxygen, which is a key requirement in this second wave of Covid”.

The decision was taken to meet the nationwide shortage caused by the surge in Covid-19 cases, the company said in a statement.
