Reliance Industries Limited's Covid-19 vaccination programme, R-Surakshaa, will be effective from May 1.

Reliance Industries Limited will roll out its own coronavirus disease (Covid-19) vaccination programme, R-Surakshaa, for all eligible employees, a letter released by CEO Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani read. "The Covid-positive caseload may rise further over the next several weeks before we begin to see a downward curve. We must be even more vigilant now and uncompromising in observing the strictest measures of safety, precaution and hygiene," the letter added.

Sharing their action plan to tackle the virus for the next three months, they urged those employees not affected by Covid-19 to support their peers who have been infected in case they need time off. "Our priority remains the safety and health of our people. Do everything possible to uphold this principle and safeguard members of your team and their families," the letter read.

The announcement comes as India registered the world's highest single-day tally for the second day in a row. As many as 332,730 fresh Covid-19 cases were recorded on Friday and the total infection count went up to 16,263,695. The number of people who died of the disease in 24 hours went up to 2,263, pushing the total toll to 186,920.
