TATA Power-DDL has always believed in working towards the betterment and upliftment of underprivileged sections of the society. In line with the same, it has installed two RO Plants at Delhi Government Schools, Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya and Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya, Nathupura, Burari, respectively.
The company as part of its initiative to provide clean drinking water in Delhi Government Schools across its operational areas in North Delhi dedicated these RO plants with the capacity of purifying 500 lts. water per hour catering to the requirements of potable water of more than 7000 students at both the schools.
This will essentially prove beneficial once the schools reopen post pandemic. Tata Power-DDL has installed 74 such RO Plants till date at Educational Institutions, JJ Clusters (slums), Delhi Metro Stations, which directly benefits more than 3.6 Lakh people every day.
The RO plants were inaugurated by Shrutibodh Agarwal, Deputy Director of Education (North), Ajay Sharma, Counsellor, MCD (North), and Ganesh Srinivasan, Chief Executive Officer, Tata Power-DDL in the presence of Senior Officials of Tata Power-DDL, Principal, and School Management Committee Members (SMC). The inauguration was followed by a Mega Plantation drive in Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya, wherein more than 2000 samplings were planted. The discarded water from the RO set up will be used to water the plants.
Ganesh Srinivasan, CEO, Tata Power-DDL said, “Ensuring the health and hygiene of young children will be of prime importance when the schools reopen post-pandemic. Implementation of RO Water Plants is a small but significant step in the same direction which aims to help students, teachers and other staff to get access to clean and safe drinking water.”
