The Shapoorji Pallonji Group on Monday contributed Rs 51 lakh to Odisha Chief Minister's Relief Fund (CMRF) for restoration measures in cyclone Fani-affected areas.

Gopalpur Port Director and CEO Sandeep Agarwal and Shapoorji Pallonji Ports AVP Jagdish Rout presented the electronic transfer documents to Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik here.
