 Prime minister Narendra Modi on Monday unveiled ONGC’s new corporate office - Deendayal Urja Bhavan, during the launch of PM Saubhagya Yojna, the government’s flagship scheme to provide electricity connection to the last mile.

 
The Deendayal Urja Bhawan has been awarded the highest LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) platinum rating by US green building council (USGBC). It is an environmentally sustainable building that has been designed, constructed and operated to minimise environmental impact by reducing energy consumption, water conservation and recycling waste.
 
The project has been registered as a clean development mechanism project with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
 
The PM also launched ONGC’s paperless office project – DISHA through video conference. It envisages carrying out regular office jobs without physical movement of paper documents.
 
Modi, accompanied by other dignitaries, also visited the Knowledge Centre, a state-of-the-art audio visual experience zone created in the building.
