Under the 3000MW Dibang Multipurpose Project, the National Hydroelectric Power Corporation Limited, has decided to upgrade its corporate social responsibilities and sustainable practices along with other welfare schemes.

NHPC Ltd plans to speed up its Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) and sustainable development activities under 3000MW Dibang Multipurpose Project (DMP) with several welfare schemes on card. This was informed  by VK Maini, General Manager, DMP during the handing over of Ultrasound Machine for Anini District Hospital. This ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging will be used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, to capture their size, structure and any pathological lesions

NHPC Ltd is currently taking up welfare schemes like scholarship to meritorious students, skill upgradation, improving health delivery system, support services for agriculture and horticulture activities and education facilities.

The Corporation expects more people to avail its welfare schemes. “Though NHPC spends Rs 15 lakhs annually for Industrial Training Institute (ITI), Roing, not many locals are availing the benefits,” said Maini.

“This was due to lack of interest for ITI courses among local people, which are now being availed by students from neighbouring states,” he said.

The company informed that funds meant for welfare schemes are not fully realized as great percentage of money is paid as taxes, which sometimes comes to Rs 4-5 lakhs.

Appreciating the effort of NHPC towards its CSR activities, Dr Migri said that the company has been consistent in its service for improving health delivery system for Dibang Valley people.

The company had earlier donated ambulances, generator, auto-analyzer machines and several medical kits for hospitals in Dibang Valley and Lower Dibang Valley.

Maini also informed about the company plan to offer several vocational courses for school and college drop outs. He appealed the local organizations and communities to spread words of such schemes so that it reaches to people.
