"COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the business environment and the economy," MRF said.
The group's plants, offices and godowns were closed when the nationwide lockdown was announced on March 24 in order to reduce the impact of the pandemic, it added.
"However, post lifting of the lockdown in a phased manner the group's operations have resumed, though not at the full level which prevailed prior to the lockdown," it added.
MRF said as on the date of the approval of the financial statements, the group has a strong net worth and has serviced all its debt obligations in a timely manner.
"It does not foresee any incremental risk regarding recoverability of assets and ability to service financial obligations," the company added.
