Another exclusive year with extraordinary achievements is all set to bid adieu – Yes, it’s 2017. The year was full of remarkable highlights and landmarks for both, the company and its employees. The year was adventurous as well as had loads of moments of accomplishments for all departments. Along with climbing ladders of corporate success, the entire staff enjoyed light moments too throughout the year. Apart from target achievement and its success parties, the employees took an active part in company’s annual event called ‘URJA’, celebrated around Diwali every year.
