Tata Steel provides drinking water facilities to rural communities in Jharkhand

Jamshedpur, May 17, 2013

Jamshedpur, May 17, 2013: Access to potable water is a perennial problem for scores of village communities in Jharkhand. To fetch water, villagers, particularly women, have to walk long distances every day just to reach a water-source like hand pump. With no solution in sight and no other source of water around, the villagers are constrained to live in water scarcity which worsens during summer season.

To address water crisis in rural areas facing acute water shortage during summer, Tata Steel has installed water extraction facilities along with overhead tanks in four villages of Boram block. More than 250 households of four villages, namely, Mirjadih, Haludbani, Lailum and Nutandih, will benefit from installation of deep bore well facility.

Mr. Biren Bhuta, Chief, Corporate Sustainability Services, Tata Steel dedicated the deep bore well facilities to the residents of these villages today.

Respective Zilla Paarshads, Mukhiyas, Ward Members, Mahila Samities and villagers attended the programme.
