Mr Pradheep Kodi, Director, iBay Systems Pte Ltd along with his father Mr Kodi and Ms Jay, Director (Operations), iBay systems, donated 56 Type D Oxygen cylinders to the 108 Ambulance service in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
SICCI helped facilitate the customs clearance for them. The Honourable Health Minister Shri Thiru Thayanithi Maran graced the handing over of the Oxygen cylinders.
Mr Pradheep and Ms Jay said, “It was the peak pandemic period in Chennai, where they were facing severe shortages of Oxygen cylinders. We had to do something about it, we could not sit by and watch it unfolding. We decided to mobilise my team to supply 56 Oxygen cylinders, but we faced a lot of hurdles when it came to customs clearance.
Furthermore, we could not get the GST waiver and tax exemption.” Mr Kodi (Pradheep’s father) approached Mr Johnson, CEO, SICCI, who provided timely assistance by connecting to relevant authorities. He said, “With their help, we were able to get the cylinders there in time for the inaugural function with the Central and State Minister. We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to SICCI for the immediate action and follow up. Our company is proud to be a member of SICCI, who stand first for the members and support every good initiative.
