He said the investment will be in the group's international and domestic operations in expanding capacities.
Elaborating further, Sridharan Rangarajan, President and Group CFO, said the investment will be in the group's international and domestic operations.
Rangarajan said the group was planning to set up a gas-based power plant in silicon carbide manufacturer Volzhsky Abrasive Works (VAW), Russia, and expanding the phosphoric acid production capacity of the fertilizer major Coromandel International Ltd at an outlay of Rs 350 crore.
According to Rangarajan, the capacity of the gas fired power plant in Russia is yet to be finalised. "The funding of the investment will be from internal accruals."
According to Murugappan, around 10 per cent of the group's turnover is from exports and largely contributed by crop protection chemicals, ceramics, steel tubes and others.
Queried about the US sanctions against Russia and its impact on the group, Murugappan said some of the customers were impacted but VAW was not majorly affected.
He said the group had no plans to rename any of its-listed or unlisted companies with the word Murugappa.
He said each group company had a history behind it and their products have good brand equity.
Last fiscal the Murugappa group companies - listed and unlisted - together posted a turnover of Rs 32,893 crore, logging a growth of 13 per cent over the previous year's turnover.
The group's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITA) was Rs 4,663 crore, higher by 14 per cent over that of the previous fiscal.
