Mr Choudhary said that performance of the plant was largely dependent on the productivity of the employees and their health was of paramount importance to the company. It was the bounden duty of the organisation to take care of its employees who were immensely contributing to the growth of the plant, he said. He urged the staff working at the hospital to improve their skills in taking care of the employees' health needs as the plant was doubling its capacity. Due to increase in the number of road accidents and also due to age-related problems, there was a need to develop a good physiotherapy centre, Mr Choudhary said and advised VSGH authorities to develop the existing physiotherapy unit into a fully equipped unit to take care of the patients.
