Tata Power continues its support to women SHG and farmers in Jamshedpur and Jharkhand during the on-going nationwide lockdown to curtail the COVID–19 pandemic by facilitating the marketing of farmer’s perishable produce. Tata Power along with its partner agency AIDENT, a social welfare organization, helped market nearly 30,000 kilograms of vegetable and muskmelons produced by farmers largely from the Khairbhoni, Domjuri, Nutandih, Khakripara villages to the local mandis of Jamshedpur & in the nearby districts of Dhanbad, Ranchi.

The COVID 19 pandemic has led to a complicated situation for the farmers as they have been locked out from harvest owing to low supply chain, due to logistical constraints in transporting the produce from farms to markets. Through this intervention, Tata Power along with the help of the local administration, facilitated seamless movement of produce to mandis/haats and  has successfully safeguarded the livelihood of the community and helped the local markets demand and supply requirements.

Commenting on this development, Mr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD, Tata Power said, “We are all facing an unprecedented challenge, one that demands unity by helping each other in these trying times. We are proud to extend our support and ensure the continuity of livelihood earnings for the farmers of these regions and help them in whatever way we can going forward.”  

Tata Power has helped local communities overcome adversity and emerge stronger by creating robust facilities to help them lead a sustainable life. Keeping in mind the supply of essential goods and commodities for the community, the company responded immediately by extending help towards maintaining the livelihood and access to essential commodities for the community.
