“Celebrating the third anniversary, it is really heartening to see the growth of the company, since I joined from the inception. As the founder CEO, I’m really glad to see the momentum.
In addition, the balance sheet is growing, which is getting stronger from year to year. Profit is showing an impressive growth. We benchmark our future growth to be 30 to 35 percent.
Our strength is the trust our customers have placed with us and our committed employees, who are well versed, experienced, dedicated, committed and ever-willing.”
