Tata Power’s Mundra UMPP distributes fish drying materials amongst community fishermen

– Mundra, October 05, 2015

Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, is committed to improving the quality of life of the communities living in and around its areas of operation. Tata Power has a strong volunteering programme and encourages its employees to get involved in its efforts and contribute their time and skills for the progress of the community. In line with this philosophy, Tata Power’s Mundra UMPP celebrated the fourth ‘Volunteering Week’ by distributing fish drying materials at Tragadi Bunder.

The objective behind this initiative was to encourage Tata Power employees to have a holistic approach towards the ecology by focusing on larger social causes, and providing them with opportunities to devote their time and skills to help the surrounding communities. Under CGPL’s key program ‘Sagarbandhu’, which focuses on the lives of the fishermen, the Tata Power volunteers distributed fish drying materials (Tarpaulin, Bamboo) to the community fishermen to help them fetch better prices in the market. Interactions and engagement with the local fishermen has identified this need for fish drying materials and equipment. In partnership with the Village Development Advisory Committee (VDAC) and the fishermen, the distribution plan was carefully strategised and 84 boat owners benefitted from this initiative. A total of 8 CGPL volunteers executed the initiative, converting it into a giant success.

Speaking on the initiative, Mr. K. K. Sharma, ED & CEO, CGPL, said, “The sustainable development and progress of the surrounding communities is a core business value of Tata Power. Tata Power gives great importance to Employee Volunteering and encourages its employees to contribute towards its efforts for community development. We will continue to service our society and work towards the welfare of the community. The hard work put in by Tata Power employees and volunteers is commendable, and demonstrates our unwavering support and commitment towards society as a whole.”

Since 2014, three volunteering weeks have been organised previously at various Company plants. The theme of this fourth ‘Volunteering Week’ was ‘Trigger a ‘Change’ reaction’. The involvement and participation of the Company’s top management in these programs play an important role in influencing and attracting employees towards such volunteering activities.

Tata Power always undertakes projects that help its communities take the highway to development and the Company will continue to initiate similar endeavours in the future.
