We realise the value of inclusive growth and position our strategy to compliment Company's business objectives. We have adopted Tata Group Affirmative Action (AA) Policy towards inclusive growth of marginalised sections of society, the Scheduled Castes (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST). Every year, we participate in TAAP (Tata Affirmative Action Program) Assessment, developed on the lines of TBEM (Tata Business Excellence Model). Since inception, our AA Program has been top ranked and this year we also received TAAP Jury Award.
We provide curative and preventive medical facilities in communities with special focus on maternal and child health care. Our medical clinics not only provide necessary medicine but they also carry various social messages. Moreover,in the premises of this hospital, we have established a state-of-art 16 bedded Malnutrition Treatment Centre (MTC), in partnership with UNICEF Jharkhand. Since, inception this centre has saved lives of over 400 children.
Availability of clean, potable drinking water becomes an issue particularly during summer season and it adversely affects health of vulnerable sections – women, children and elderly. To bridge this gap, in 2010-11 we instituted Safe Drinking Water project under aegis of SMDF (Sumant Moolgaonkar Development Foundation). Till March 2013, we have provided drinking water solutions in 68 villages.
Our education programme envisions bringing a meaningful and positive impact on the lives of children residing in rural areas through effective, case based holistic approach. As a result of these focussed initiatives, students associated with our education initiative continuously posted more than 90% result in senior secondary examination.
We have partnered with 135 ITIs across 19 states and focussed initiatives have been undertaken in these ITIs in terms of upgrading the in-house training facilities, improving the quality of training by Training the Trainer etc.
PROFESSIONAL DRIVER TRAINING PROGRAMME
Our Professional Driver Training Programme is aligned with the business needs of the organisation. We recognise that drivers are the primary customers of our commercial vehicles and to sustain business growth, more drivers will be required in upcoming years. During the year, we have trained 564 novice drivers through seven centres spread across the country. The initiative has developed strong governmental linkages particularly for the training fees subsidy of the candidates.
In the present era of ever-increasing energy consumption, the importance of fuel such as biogas and biomass based power generation has greatly increased. At Sanand, as pilot project, we have installed 5 biogas units as pilot in 2 villages of Manipur and Melasana. At Pantnagar, we mentored community clubs to protect environment. Through these community clubs, we sensitised villagers about climate change and green environment.
In 2012-13, we have planted 230,000 trees in partnership with NGOs, Government Line departments and communities.
