At JSPL, the scope of social welfare goes beyond just providing education and health care facilities. With the rapid pace of industrialization, Raigarh and its surroundings have undergone a lot of transformation. Being at the helm of development in Raigarh, JSPL has undertaken the responsibility of infrastructure up gradation in the villages through the following activities:
- Construction of approach roads.
- Construction of water tanks.
- Construction of drains.
- Repair and deepening of village ponds
Apart from these, JSPL has developed the Kamla Nehru Park and a unique musical fountain in the city that provides leisure, recreation and entertainment to the citizens of Raigarh. The company has been providing all possible support to the state & district games association for promoting sports. In addition to this, it has also created the Jindal Rural Youth Club (in 12 adopted villages) that promotes both sports and other cultural activities.
Sports gear has been distributed to several rural youth clubs for promotion of sports & games in the area. A football tournament is organized every year in Patratu in the memory of our beloved "BABUJI", Shri O. P. Jindal.
Initiation of Kitchen Garden
Most people in the villages in and around Patratu lack basic food and nutrition. To address this, JSPL has made model kitchen gardens for providing vegetables to families. The company has aided mushroom cultivation in pockets, helping in income generation of the people here.
The National Nutrition Week was organized from 1st to 7th September in 2007 & 2008, in which nutritious vegetables, soya bean, iodized salt and fruits were distributed to 20 village schools operational in the area.
Farm animals in the areas of Raigarh, Patratu and Angul are checked from time to time and facilities such as de-worming, vitamins supplementation, vaccination, de-horning, etc. are done.
Renovation of Old Age Homes
Established by the Red Cross Society and the social welfare department, the “Old Age Home” at Raigarh is home to 38 senior citizens. Because of the resource crunch, some of the facilities could not be maintained or developed properly. JSPL took upon the responsibility of maintaining this “Old Age Home” by establishing medical examination facilities, hospital and isolation ward and first aid center, developing land for a nursery and kitchen and installing hand pumps.
