Complementing the efforts of the disaster management team of Sivasagar, ONGC has extended a financial aid of Rs 20 lakh.
The amount has been provided for inducting three sophisticated and comprehensive sets of rubber boats with an outboard machine.
The disaster management personnel will use these inflatable rescue boats for search and rescue operations during the floods for transporting men and material.
Each boat has a carrying capacity of ten persons.
ONGC Assam Asset has spent 16 Crores under CSR during the financial year 2018-19.
Speaking on the occasion, Sanjeev Kakran, executive director & asset Manager, ONGC Assam Asset, said ONGC has been committed to the development of Assam since it’s beginning in the state in the 1960s.
The company’s CSR spend has been steadily increasing over the decades in the state.
The Maharatna’s two flagship CSR initiatives- Super 30 and Swargdev Sukafa Multi-speciality hospital in Sivasagar- are exemplary.
“These are being emulated by several other PSUs in the country,” he added.
