Takes another step to showcase commitment to the state of Bihar and its people and to ensure that the entire village gets electricity
Dalmia Cement (Bharat), India’s leading cement company has been working relentlessly in the Bihar region for the last 80 years. And the hard work has finally paid off as the company recently facilitated the electrification of Satagaliya village near our Banjari plant, so as to ensure that the 400 residents of the village get electricity. This initiative was undertaken with active support of Mr. Pankaj Dixit, DM, Rohtas, Jyotinath Sahdev, SDM, Dehri on Sone, along with local BSEB and Block officials.
Working in line with the Government of India’s Clean and Green mission, Dalmia Cement has also distributed solar lantern and smokeless cooking stoves in Satagaliya and the nearby villages. This has been extremely beneficial to them as these stoves cause very little pollution during cooking.
Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Raj Kumar Banveer, Assistant Executive Director & Unit Head, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited, Banjari, said, “We are delighted to see that Satagaliya village has got electricity connections. I am confident that the electrification of the village will prove to be a pivot in improving the socio-economic conditions of the local community and empower the people to lead a quality life. We are thankful to district administration who have played a vital role in realizing and enabling this initiative.”
“Our relationship with the state of Bihar dates back to the pre-independence era and with this initiative, we would like to reiterate our commitment towards the development and growth of this state and its people. Overall development of the local communities around the plant is our priority and we will continue to do so for the development of the region.” He further added.
Since its acquisition of the plant recently, DCBL has worked in tandem with the Bihar government to ensure revival of the unit. This historic plant is the only integrated cement unit in Bihar. Located in Banjari, district of Rohtas, Bihar, it has a captive Limestone Mine Reserve at Murli Pahari and is just two kilometres away from the plant. The state of Bihar is a key focus for the company, which continues to grow its operations, providing livelihood and progress to its people and development in the entire Eastern region.
