Indian real-estate company, DLF, has assured that no employees will be laid off in the organisation. In fact, the Company plans to give the annual increments to its employees up to L3 level. The COVID-19 outbreak and the lockdown have had an adverse impact on the real-estate sector. However, DLF claims to have paid salaries to all its employees—be it those working directly on its rolls or those working through contractors— as well as daily-wagers, on time. The March salaries have been disbursed and the salaries for April will also be given.
The Company has been lending a hand in all the relief work, by donating medical equipment, gloves, masks and sanitisers in huge quantities to those working in the frontline. The realty major has also donated Rs 5 crore to the Haryana Covid Relief Fund. Through its CSR unit, the DLF Foundation, the Company will be contributing about Rs 50 lakh to the Tamil Nadu COVID Relief Fund, and Rs 10 lakh to the Chennai Kanchipuram District Relief Fund. It will also be donating Rs 5 lakh to the Society for Cyberabad Security Council in Hyderabad. The Foundation has supplied equipment to the police and other workers of the local administration in Delhi, Gurugram, Noida and Faridabad, so that they can protect themselves. Not only has it distributed dry rations, it has also served 6.37 lakh cooked meals to daily wagers and migrants who have been rendered jobless due to the pandemic.
