BMW Group India has pledged INR 3 crore in the ongoing battle against COVID-19 pandemic. The Group has also partnered with various government agencies and NGO’s for implementation of its initiative to flatten the curve. The voluntary contribution comes from the employees of BMW Group India, BMW Group Plant Chennai, and BMW India Financial Services.
The Group will also be participating in the creation of an isolation ward for patients at the Government General Hospital in Chengalpattu. Arrangements have been made to provide medical critical care equipment and services in Delhi NCR and Chennai.
Additionally, BMW Group India has contributed towards nutrition for the economically marginalised families around their Chennai and Delhi NCR facilities as part of this initiative.
The Group has further set an example by implementing ‘work from home’ across all its offices in India. Local production at BMW Group Plant Chennai has accordingly been stopped till 3 May 2020. Aftersales and breakdown services staff are operating as per the local government directives and are functional with limitations. All showrooms are presently closed and will reopen as per government advisory.
