MD’s quote

“ CIAL’s development policy encompasses Total Sustainability Management (TSM). We try to explore every possible way to address the climate change. CIAL which achieved power neutrality in 2015 now becomes a power surplus organisation, feeding approximately 4 crore units of excess power annually to the State grid. And with the help of the Government, we are sure that we can venture into more such projects in near future "
