Gomardih: Continuing its support to the community and to promote education among girls, Tata Steel has constructed a hostel building at Janata Girls’ High School, under Kutra block of Sundergarh district near its Gomardih Dolomite Quarry.
The building was inaugurated by Mr. D B Sundara Ramam, EIC (FAMD), Tata Steel and handed over to the school management in a small function held here, in the presence of Mr Pankaj Satija, GM (FAMD), Mr P R Prasad, Chief HRM-RM, Tata Steel, teachers and students of the school. Built at a cost of ₹ 27 lakh with proper electrification, the hostel building can accommodate 50 students.
Earlier students used to travel long distances to study in the school making it inconvenient for the girls particularly during rainy and summer seasons. The community members, the students, the parents and the teachers of the school thanked Tata Steel as this problem was addressed with the construction of the hostel. Among others present during the inaugural function included Mr. Niral Kachhap, Head, HRM-FAMD; Mr. S S Mishra, Sr. Manager, GDQ and local PRI members.
Similarly to create awareness on environment, the steel major has also organised Vana Mohashav at Surgo Kissan School, Gomardih on July 12.
