The holy city of Varanasi is getting benefits of corporate social responsibility funds of various public sector undertakings.

In order to promote solar power and also to overcome power crisis, Varanasi Municipal Corporation (VMC) may install solar power panels at its offices. The funds for the project are being provided by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) under its corporate social responsibility programme.

For better management of garbage in the city, the oil major Indian Oil, may provide a solid waste management (SWM) plant at Ramana. The tender process for it will commence this month. Besides the SWM plant with a capacity of treatment of 200 metric tonnes of waste, the oil company will also set up as many as five mini-garbage plants at Pahadia Mandi, Chandua Satti, Orderly Bazaar and Beniabagh slaughter house.

Indian Oil is also constructing toilets for girls at GGIC Maldahiya, Rajkiya High School in Harhua and Saghat. They will be ready November-end. The PSU may also help in providing toilets at district women's hospital in Kabirchaura, commissioner's compound, Jal Kal, Beniabagh and zonal office in Dashaswamedh.

Toilets for public would also be constructed by another oil PSU. Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) is building public lavatories near Banaras Club and Sarnath Station.

The ONGC will complete installation water ATMs at Kabirchaura next week. These ATMs for payment of bills would be installed near Sarnath, Kotwali, Chittaranjan Park and VMC office in Sigra.
