In its bid to support widows of Indian Navy officers who lost their lives on duty, NBCC has constructed a four-story Sahara Hostel in New Delhi. The Navratna CPSE NBCC has undertaken this project as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and has borne 50% of the construction cost amounting to Rs 512.64 lakhs with the Indian Navy.
The hostel was recently inaugurated by Lt Governor of Delhi, Shri Anil Baijal in presence of senior officials of Indian Navy and NBCC.
This welfare initiative is for providing accommodation to the widows who visit the national capital for employment and other purposes.
The Sahara Hostel comprises 34 dwelling units equipped with all necessary amenities for dignified living, along with a common Dining Hall and a Community Hall.
It is worth mentioning that NBCC as a responsible corporate citizen is committed to nation building and contributing to the society that will sustain the nation’s growth. As part of its CSR initiatives, NBCC has been working with communities to implement a range of programs in the areas of health, education, infrastructure development, and local employment.
