Kolkata:White goods major, Godrej Appliances remains buoyant on growth prospects and is aiming at 27 per cent topline growth to Rs 3,500 crore in the current fiscal.

“Godrej Appliances achieved a turnover of Rs 2,750 crore in FY15. In FY16, we are targeting a turnover of Rs 3,500 crore,” Godrej Appliances Business Head & EVP Kamal Nandi told PTI.

Product strategy and expansion of footprints would fuel the growth, he said.
