We at NPL contribute to the socio-economic development of nearby areas and communities through various CSR initiatives. We work with Village People, Panchayat Representatives, Concerned Govt. departments/officials and other Community Stakeholders (School Teachers, Aganwari Workers, Health Workers, Youth Clubs etc.) to ensure their participation and valuable contribution in the developmental process.
NPL has launched various welfare programmes/schemes to support the people as well communities. Presently we are working within the radius of 5 kilometres from the Plant site and our CSR initiatives impact 49 villages.
In order to become part of the local fraternity, a lot of effort have been put in by addressing the social needs of the surrounding villages. It all began with small group interactions at the village level with elders, ladies, panchayats and youth; which at times became very challenging and tough to build up consensus due to divergent views and very high aspirations of the people.
At regular intervals we meet with panchayats and other community stakeholders to understand their needs/requirements and also to get their valuable feedback about our CSR efforts/programs. It brings a sense of ownership and a feel of volunteerism towards this social movement which contributes to the development of the surrounding communities and brings significant change in their lives.
We would like to put on record our sincere appreciation and support being provided to us by local Administration, Sarpanches, Panches, Nambardars, Women, Volunteers, Youth, Teachers, Health workers, Aganwari Workers, without which our dream of ensuring inclusive growth would not have become a reality.
