NALCO makes a clean statement, builds toilets in Odisha and AP

GN Bureau | September 9, 2015




National Aluminium Company Limited (NALCO), the navratna PSU of ministry of mines has completed its target of constructing toilets for schools in three districts of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh.

Chairman and managing director TK Chand has been felicitated by S.C. Khuntia, Secretary, Department of School Education & Literacy, ministry of HRD “for achieving 100% target under Swachh Vidyalaya initiative” by the company.

“Please convey my appreciation to all the officers who have contributed to the success in this socially important initiative,” wrote Khuntia.
NALCO was asked by the ministry to build 355 toilets in 202 schools of Angul, Koraput and Visakhapatnam districts. NALCO could successfully complete the task within the stipulated time, through NALCO Foundation, the CSR arm of the company. 

Swachh Vidyalaya Abhiyan was a herculean task for the public sector unit as most of the schools allotted to NALCO are located in remote and Maoist-infested areas of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. Since, some of the schools did not have any approach roads, pre-fabricated toilets had to be carried on head loads, crossing rivulets and hillocks.

However, NALCO not only achieved the targets in time but also constructed 79 additional toilets, beyond the MHRD target, as per ground realities and requests from school authorities. With that, NALCO altogether constructed 433 toilets in 206 schools, under Swachh Vidyalaya Abhiyan.
