GUWAHATI, April 16: Indian Oil recently installed 2 power looms at Ramakrishna Sarada Mission with the sole objective to check the power cut problem and help the women to produce handloom products with improved productivity. Ramakrishna Sarada Mission, Thakurnagar runs a centre for producing handloom products by the women of the locality and nearby villages which in turn helps these women to be self dependent and cater to their livelihood. Power cut is a common problem in Thakurnagar, West Bengal area and a DG set was required for giving the women a continuous power for running the power looms 8 hours a day.
Indian Oil with its ‘pehle Indian phir Oil’ philosophy came to the rescue of the mission and installed a 15 KVA Diesel Generator in the mission. Executive Director of West Bengal state office Dipankar Ray along with senior management of IndianOil and the mothers of the mission inaugurated the DG set on April 13. The CSR of Indian Oil was highly appreciated by the mission’s secretary Pravrajika Nirbhikaprana Maataji. She thanked the Indian Oil for its promptness and lighting up the lives of rural women who earn their livelihood from running these looms.
Dipankar Ray went on to say that such CSR activity would help the deprived section of the society which would go on build a better India. He also visited the power looms where the women work and addressed the students of the Mission
