New Delhi [India], June 3 (ANI/NewsVoir): COVID-19 cases in India have been gradually coming down, especially in the northern states of India, however, the situation still remains harrowing in other parts of the country.

The tough times continue to haunt the society as a whole and Sonalika Tractors has reiterated its call of collaborative efforts from everyone capable – be it individuals, industrialists or corporates to join the movement in preparing the nation for medical emergencies.

India’s fastest growing tractor brand and the No. 1 Exports brand from the country, Sonalika Tractors came forward in April’21 to announce a massive COVID-19 vaccination drive for 100% of its workforce and in just two months, the company has achieved its mission.

Under the fully sponsored drive by the company, all of Sonalika’s family members have been vaccinated with the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine moving as per plan at the Pan India level.
