Shree Bagwan Vasant, MD & CEO
As India is witnessing a gradual decline in the daily coronavirus infections, the RBI anticipates an encouraging uptick in our economic recovery in the December quarter. Heavily hit by the pandemic-induced lockdowns, the industrial growth kept diminishing for six months till August, pushing the retail inflation to 7.61 percent in October and leaving nearly 19 million people jobless. While the country was struggling with unemployment and exorbitant prices of essential products, especially the sanitization merchandise and protective equipment we desperately needed to fight against the pandemic, Shree Bhagwan Vasant (CEO & MD, Easy Secure India) rose to the occasion and launched a range of COVID relief products at a very nominal rate. Making his contribution towards lifting the rate of economic expansion, he further generated employment opportunities through his easy, secure and low-risk dealership model, which encourages people to commence their own business and bestows small business owners with great profit margins.
