calender22/12/2015

Bhubaneswar, 22/12/2015: National Aluminium Company Limited (NALCO), the Navratna CPSE, is setting up a modern eye hospital at Angul, in association with reputed LV Prasad Eye Institute (LVPEI) entailing an initial investment of Rs.15 crore. LVPEI is a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre for prevention of Blindness and a Global Resource Centre for VISION 2020. The new hospital shall primarily cater to the economically disadvantaged groups of nearby villages. Land for the hospital has already been identified by the company.

As such, NALCO is every day running three mobile healthcare units and one OPD at Angul, which offer free medicines to the rural people. It may be noted that besides the mandatory 2% of its net profit, NALCO is spending an additional Rs.300 crore under its CSR programme.

Since NALCO’s Smelter and Captive Power Plant are located in Angul, the aluminium major has lined up a series of initiatives in the contiguous areas. NALCO shall be renovating the existing water supply system in 13 villages, through Rural Water Supply & Sanitation (RWS & S) department of the Govt, spending more than Rs.10 crore.

Under Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, NALCO constructed 144 toilets in 72 schools of the district. Besides, the company has established vital road links from IAPL square to Bentapur and Kaniabeda to Kurdol recently.

As regards water, NALCO is creating four water bodies – two at Girang, one each at Kulad and Kandsar. Besides, the company has taken up augmentation of pipe-water supply to Kulad village through RWS & S.
