Bokaro: The deputy commissioner (DC) of Bokaro, Rajesh Singh has expressed displeasure over the spiritless approach of Oil Natural and Gas Corporation (ONGC), Dalmia Cement and ESL Steel Limited (ESL) of Vedanta Group in doing development work allotted to them under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Earlier meeting was held on December, 1, 2019.
The district public relation department (DPRD) stated that “DC expressed displeasure over ONGC, Dalmia Cement and Electrosteel Vedanta related to the development work allotted to them under CSR”. DC also directed residential magistrate-cum-incharge officer of CSR, Manisha Vats to ensure that the CSR meeting should be held every month. The next meeting will be held on January, 05. Vats stated that DC was not satisfied with the three companies as they had not performed upto the expectation.
“In a CSR meeting held a year ago, ONGC was asked perform deep boring, to install roti maker at government educational institutions and other development works under CSR which is still pending on its part. Similarly, Dalmia is yet to install CCTV cameras at critical points under CSR. Electrosteel has not yet completed upgradation of Aganbadi Centres. It has been asked to develop 100 Aganbadi Centres in the areas suggested by administration,” said Vats.
