Addressing the gathering Shri Akash Dasnayak said, “I thank Tata Steel for their commitment towards philanthropic and CSR work.

Speaking on the occasion Shri Rajiv Kumar, said, “We are proud of our long-term partnership with Government of Odisha.

To make quality education infrastructure available to students in far flung areas of Odisha, Tata Steel has signed MoU with the State Government to construct 30 model schools across the state. This initiative by the steel major is part of the Government of Odisha’s grand plan of setting up Adarsha Vidyalaya (Model Schools) in each block in the state. The model schools at Danagadi, Kamakhyanagar and Nayagarh constructed by Tata Steel were inaugurated recently and many more schools are under construction. All efforts are being made to complete construction of the remaining schools at the earliest.
