The facility will be run in-house by trained women of Self Help Groups of JJ Clusters in company’s area of operation.
The kitchen will first be operational at Gulabi Bagh and DOSEC Office of the company and will provide low cost and hygienic meals to Employees, BA Employees, ABHAs, WLC instructors and other beneficiaries attending trainings at Gulabi Bagh. The initiative is in line with UNNATI program under the SAATHI initiative of the company’s Social Innovation Group.
This will provide an alternative to local tiffin services, restaurants, and existing external vendors. This will also serve as an entrepreneurial opportunity and a regular source of income for SHG members, as the kitchen will be run by the women themselves. On the basis of the response received, the project will be expanded pan Tata Power-DDL, allowing more trained and dedicated community women to join the entrepreneurial venture.
The inauguration of the same was done by Mr. M. Shenbagam, COO in presence of senior officials of the company.
