After a brief period of suspension, the Amara
Raja Batteries Limited plants at Nunegundlapalli and Karakambadi in Andhra
Pradesh’s Chittoor district resumed operations on May 8, after the state’s High
Court granted an interim suspension of the order passed by the Andhra Pradesh
Pollution Control Board (APPCB). The APPCB had ordered the immediate closure of
the plants on April 30.
Amara Raja Batteries Limited is one of the
largest manufacturers of lead-acid batteries for the Indian storage battery
industry. The company said that it would try to engage with the APPCB
authorities to prevent dislocation in supplies.
The company stated that it is confident of
meeting all the supply demands and that the temporary disruption in operations
will not affect its order book.
“We have taken proactive measures to ensure that
all our obligations to supply products and services to our customers are met in
a timely manner without causing any inconvenience, whatsoever. We are assessing
the impact of the short term disruption and gearing up to sufficiently cater to
the demands of all our customers and business partners. We also take this
opportunity to thank all our employees, customers, partners, vendors and all
other stakeholders who reposed faith in us and we will continue to strive to
meet all their expectations,” said the company’s spokesperson.
