As a nodal agency for procurement and supply of emergency medical items for COVID-19 pandemic management, it has enabled real time management of the crisis".
HLL Chairman & Managing Director Beji George presented the cheque to Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya in presence Dr Bharati Pravin Pawar, MoS(HFW) at a function held at Nirman Bhavan, here.
