- Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, has always been a front runner in undertaking various initiatives to improve the standard of living of the local community. In continuation with the philosophy, Tata Power undertook an initiative to empower the families by facilitating them with their caste certificates at its hydros division. More than 775 families benefitted in getting their caste certificates that would help them in getting access to various initiatives from the government.
The caste certification documentation drive, for those belonging to the Affirmative Action communities, was attended by senior officials from Tata Power along with senior leaders from the region. Many of the employees from Tata Power also volunteered for the programme and helped in the smooth processing of the certificates under the TVW6 initiative.
Speaking on the occasion, Mahesh Paranjpe, chief, hydro and renewable operations, Tata Power, said, “The caste certification drive among the underprivileged communities is another initiative by Tata Power that underscores our commitment towards the communities residing in and around our plants. The initiative would allow them to have access to the various social schemes from the government. We would remain committed for further development in the region and would try to improve the living standards with our various interventions.”
There were more than 1,700 families, belonging to the Affirmative Action community, who were without their caste certificates. The initiative by Tata Power helped around 1,626 families to file for caste certificates, among which 776 families were successfully obtained their certificates.
Tata Power would continue to engage with the communities around its operational areas and strive hard to be the catalyst of change for the region’s bright and prosperous future.
