Ahmedabad: Gujarat’s Education Minister Shri Bhupendrasinh Chudasama commissioned a community RO (Reverse Osmosis) plant at Transad village in Ahmedabad’s Dholka Taluka.
The RO plant has been contributed to the village by pharma major Cadila Pharmaceuticals, through its CSR Wing – Indrashhil Kaka-Ba & Kala Budh Public Charitable Trust – as a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The fully automatic plant allows water to be availed round the clock by the local community by simply swiping the prepaid Water ATM Card without any manual intervention.
The RO plant will provide 20 liters of clean and pure drinking water at a nominal cost of Rs. 5.
Education Minister Shri Chudasama, who represents the Dholka constituency in the state assembly, commissioned the plant in the presence of senior Cadila officials and local community leaders. He appreciated Cadila Pharmaceuticals for this initiative and urged people to utilize maximum benefits of the RO plant. At the same time, he requested everyone to use water wisely to prevent wastage.
Ahmedabad’s District Development Officer Arun Mahesh Babu, IAS and Riddhi Shukla from Gujarat Administrative Services visited the RO plant and lauded Cadila Pharmaceuticals for the initiative creating provision of clean drinking water to a large number of families at a nominal cost.
“As a responsible corporate, Cadila Pharmaceuticals undertakes CSR initiatives in the vicinity of its plants on a regular basis.
