I believe that exposure visit to plant would further trigger interest in science and manufacturing among the children. When industrialization happens, people of the locality are benefited and their standard of living also goes up. We are working closely with the community and have undertaken various developmental works including flower cultivation, mushroom cultivation, etc in peripheral areas of the plant to boost the financial status of tribal people. We have also set up a primary health centre at Lanjiberna to cater the basic health requirements of people of the locality. That apart, we have set up Dalmia OCL Eye Centre in association with LVPEI to extend the best eye care facilities to the people. Again, Dalmia ITI has been imparting technical training to people who are being successfully employed in major commercial establishments. We thank you all for visiting the plant and I hope that you would have learned a lot from today’s exposure trip and would make best use of it in your life.”
