REMOTE RURAL ELECTRIFICATION PROGRAMME
As part of the corporate social responsibility, CONCOR partnered with another public sector company, Central Electronics Limited (CEL), to light up a million faces in rural backwaters of India. The state-run container company launched a rural development project to provide solar lighting systems and other amenities to un-electrified villages in two Rajasthan districts this year. CONCOR funded, helped plan and monitored the execution of this project while CEL was responsible for on-the-ground implementation and maintenance. Overall, the project provided solar home and street lighting systems to 40 villages in Jodhpur and Sirohi districts. This initiative has earned CONCOR considerable goodwill of the rural population.
