Making a difference to society has been inherently present in the way the Group functions. Starting from the vision, to every initiative that the Group takes up, giving it back to the community has become part of the group’s way of doing business. This has been successfully brought from dream to reality by the 25-year-old Varalakshmi Foundation, the CSR arm of the GMR Group. The foundation works with the communities surrounding the group’s business operations to improve the quality of life. The foundation is happy to have created an impact on over 1 lakh lives and been supported by over a 1000-member team working across 27 locations in the country and 2 in Nepal.
