Covid care: Borosil extends helping hand to kin of deceased employees

Will take care of the education of the deceased employee's children till their graduation.

MUMBAI: With the country battling an upsurge of Covid2019 cases, several companies have been rolling out aid and compensation for employees and their families impacted by the pandemic.

Borosil Ltd and Borosil Renewables have said that in the event of an employee losing their life due to Covid2019, his or her family will continue to receive the salary for the next two years. The company will also take care of the education of the deceased employee’s children “till their graduation in India” the glassware company said. The family members will also be eligible to receive other additional benefits the employee is entitled to, said the brand.

A statement to the effect from Borosil Ltd’s managing director Shreevar Kheruka was shared on the company’s social media handle.

The statement read, “We have lost four employees to this dreadful pandemic. Their names are Santosh Chalke, Vijay Shirsath, Tushar Panchal and Shiv Shankar Bisht. The sadness for these losses is indescribable.

In order to reassure our employees, we have announced that the family of any employee of Borosil Ltd and Borosil Renewable Ltd and their subsidiaries will be given two years of salary in the event of an unfortunate demise owing to Covid2019. In addition to this, the education of the children of the employee will be paid till graduation in India.

The above is no comparison to the scale of the loss, but hopefully will allow the family enough time to process the bereavement and reorient.

I strongly believe that the real assets of Borosil are not reflected on our Balance Sheet at all. We need to protect these assets in whatever way we can. I hope this move is a step in that direction.

This too shall pass and we will emerge into a better tomorrow!”

Last week, gig services marketplace Urban Company also announced it had set up the Mohit Agrawal Covid Relief Fund in memory of the company’s director of engineering who passed away due to Covid2019. The company has partnered with Srinidhi Foundation to set up the relief fund that will provide medical assistance and bereavement support to Urban Company’s gig workforce and their families. The company’s co-founder Abhiraj Singh Bhal took to Twitter to share the news.
