This Rs.9-crore project shall be executed through Nalco Foundation, the CSR arm of the company. The Foundation has already installed 30 solar street lights in 2 villages, as a pilot project.

Besides, Nalco has also received proposals from local Sarpanchs, MLAs, MPs and District Administration to take up different projects towards the infrastructure development in the villages around Damanjodi and Pottangi. In this line, in the first phase, Nalco is planning to implement 49 projects at a cost of Rs.15.83 crore.

In the field of employment generation for the project affected people in Damanjodi sector, Nalco has taken up significant steps. The company has provided employment to all the 600 Land Displaced Persons, barring one for want of nominee. Going a step further, the company has now identified 235 substantially affected persons, who have lost 1/3rd or more land for the project of Nalco in this sector. The list of nominees from the identified families is being prepared by the District Administration. Out of the names nominated so far, 3 persons have been employed in the company and rest nominees are in the process of getting employment.

Nalco has also proved to be an active partner of Govt of India in implementing the Swachh Bharat and Swachh Vidyalaya Abhiyan. The company has constructed 473 toilets in 224 schools of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, out of which 172 toilets have been constructed in 85 schools of Koraput district.
