Plus, we are excited to support the government's recently announced Suryodaya Yojana, where the target is to have one crore residential rooftop solar. This initiative will not only empower individuals with clean energy but also create additional lending opportunities for PFC across the entire solar value chain, including equipment manufacturing. This initiative will enhance our growth prospects in the coming years while aligning with the GoI’s vision for making India self-reliant in the energy sector.
