In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak in India, Nagpur business Ravi Agrawal has offered to turn the plush wedding destination Chattarpur Farms in Nagpur into a quarantine facility if need arises. Agrawal is the group chairman of L7 Group, which own Chattarpur Farms.

Speaking to Nation Next, Ravi Agrawal said, “Keeping in mind the present situation in the city and country, I and Paras Jain (CEO), as part of our corporate social responsibility, decided to offer Chattarpur Farms to be turned into a quarantine facility if need arises. We spoke to the honourable collector for the same and an inspection was carried out at the venue four days back. However, we have been told that there is no need as of now and we will be contacted if need arises.”

Informing about the facilities at Chattarpur Farms, Agrawal added, “There are 125 fully air conditioned rooms with attached bathrooms at the facility, which can be of a great help to the authorities.” Interestingly, Agrawal and Jain have also been sending out 1500-2000 food packets everyday for poor and needy throughout the city.

Agrawal said, “Since there are no weddings happening now, we are using our kitchen facility to make food for the needy. Most of the food packets are being given to daily wage workers, who are in a bad shape right now because of the lockdown.”
