  65. Congrats Mr.Joshi. I remember the tradition of social service and rural development is in the work culture of Hindustan Zinc management since the 80's. I appreciate Vedanta management team for extending and encouraging this . At the same time, I wish the other companies in the Vedanta group follow this example of HZL so that the good thinking and vision at the top permeates to all. Good luck.
