· Show the way to quality of life. Doctors, health care providers and insurers can actually join hands with non-profit organisations that work on cancer, heart ailments and lung diseases to chart out a plan for good quality of life for employees.

While targeted savings of Rs1bn in FY21E is noteworthy, we believe fixed cost absorption will continue to remain a challenge in a weak demand environment (inventory utilization for 35 legacy/17 batch 1/21batch 2 stations is expected to be 45%/15%/10% in FY21E). Further, recovery in non-FCT business will be back ended as events, activations & concerts would remain suspended until COVID-19 risk subsides.
