MRPL to the rescue of Chelaieru Rehabilitation Colony

January 28, 2008

Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Ltd, (MRPL), an ONGC group company, has come forward to solve the acute drinking water problem at the Chelairu Rehabilitation Colony by handing over Rs1,00,000/- to MESCOM (Mangalore Electricity Supply Company Ltd).

The earlier laid water pipeline, constructed with funding support of Rs65,00,000/- from MRPL, is currently inadequate and the existing borewells have run dry. An open well is the only reliable source now and though a 10KW pump had been procured the villlagers needed a one time deposit money of Rs1,00,000/- to be paid to MESCOM. With the intervention of Deputy Commissioner, Shri Maheshwar Rao and timely response from Shri R Rajamani, Managing Director, MRPL, the problem has now been effectively solved.

"We are concerned about the welfare of the community and MRPL has never been found wanting in attending to a felt need voiced by the right forum", says Shri R Rajamani, MD, MRPL. "MRPL is also facilitating the construction of a 3 lakh litre overhead tank that will provide even more relief to the people of Chelairu and we are happy with the progress of the Project," he added.

The cheque addressed to MESCOM was handed over by Shri. Santhosh Kumar Kadri, DGM (P&HR), MRPL in the presence of Smt. Seethamma N.C, Project Director Zilla Parishat and Mr. Kantaraju, Executive Officer (see pic), Taluk Panchyat Chelaieru Panchyat President, Secretary, Displaced Families Association President Secretary and other Officer Bearers, Residents of colony, in the meeting held on 25/01/2008 at Samudaya Bhavan.
