He didn’t impose his thoughts on company associates while every associate contributed to the progress in the form of skills and hard work. Bhau had an extra-ordinary personality and developed the work culture. Associates have been following this co-operative work culture and preserving it. Bhau’s mantra was ’Leave This World Better Than You Found It.’ Today, this is the second AGM in which Bhau is not physically present and still we feel his presence and blessings for us. Company is progressing as per his expectations. After this speech, he declared all resolutions put up in the AGM as passed.
Mr Anil Jain, CEO and Vice-Chairman, Jain Irrigation outlined the progress of Jain Industrial Group. He said in his appraisal that some had questions and doubts about the progress of Company after Bhau’s death but Bhau had made all associates embrace the work culture of hard work. Therefore, Company is making tremendous progress. Our business was affected in some proportion due to two significant events - the note ban and GST but still the company’s progress has been continuing. The turnover of company has already crossed over Rs 7000 crore. The income also grew along with the quality. The profit has increased from Rs 48 crore to Rs 176 crore along with 5.6% rise in the business. We could raise ’Green Bonds’ of $200 million from the global market as our products were related to environment. The Company had got ’A’ grade ratings and the loan at reduced rate of interest. This is very good for our business. Jain Irrigation has a subsidiary company - Jain Farm Fresh. There is a big opportunity for fruit processing in South India and therefore, we are setting up a fruit processing plant at Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh and Mr Chandrababu Naidu, Chief Minister, A.P. is also cooperating. The work on integrated fruit production and processing plant at Kurnool (Hyderabad) in an area of 600 acres has already begun. Earlier, he also spoke about orange processing project at Morshi in Amravati district. This project would help orange grower farmers to plant Sweet Oranges saplings and harvest fruits. It would raise their farm income. Mr Atul Jain, Joint Managing Director, proposed the vote of thanks. The 30th AGM concluded with the national anthem.
