NEW DELHI: Cairn India, one of the world’s leading independent oil and gas exploration and production companies, has bagged the prestigious award in Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (Corporate) in the Special Technical Award category during Petrotech 2016.

The award was presented by the Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas (Independent Charge), Dharmendra Pradhan in the presence of the Union Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister – Arun Jaitley and members of the industry during the recently concluded Petrotech–2016 at New Delhi.

Cairn India won the prestigious award for its safe drinking water initiative, the Jeevan Amrit Project, which provides clean and safe drinking water to communities in the districts of Rajasthan through 333 ‘Any Time Water’ kiosks. Speaking about the award, Sudhir Mathur, Acting CEO, Cairn India Limited, said “We are very proud that our Jeevan Amrit Project has been recognized by the industry. Cairn India is committed to continue working for the millions of people of India, and this project is a step in that direction. Dedicated to communities in places we have pour operations, the Jeevan Amrit Project not only ensures clean and safe drinking water to the people but also provides members a sense of ownership and fosters rural entrepreneurship.”

On completion, the Jeevan Amrit Project, which operates through water kiosks, will be one of the largest CSR community water initiatives in India, touching over a million lives. A model of the water dispensing unit was showcased at the Cairn India pavilion at Petrotech 2016.

Through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, Cairn India is transforming lives of communities in Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat. Along with the Jeevan Amrit project, Nand Ghar are initiatives that rest on the edicts of inclusive development. Designed with an aim to develop and modernise Anganwadis, the Ministry of Women and Child Development and Vedanta signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to build 4000 next generation Anganwadis across the country. Besides supplementary nutrition and basic healthcare services, Nand Ghars also provide pre-school education through e-learning in villages they are instituted in. These modern Anganwadis are enabling village women to become entrepreneurs, thereby generating employment and enhancing incomes. A thematic model of the Nand Ghar was also exhibited at the pavilion at Petrotech 2016.

Petrotech is a biennial mega-event that has been organized since 1995 under the aegis of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas, Government of India. Petrotech Society instituted special Technical Awards to recognize and reward exemplary outstanding contribution in the Oil and Gas sector. The award to Cairn India is testament of the company’s commitment to the community and society.
