THE MANNER OF EXECUTION OF SUBSIDY PROGRAMMES, INCLUDING THE AMOUNTS ALLOCATED AND THE DETAILS OF BENEFICIARIES OF SUCH PROGRAMMES
As such NTPC does not have any subsidy schemes/programmes for public. Most of NTPC’s operating power stations are located in remote rural areas which are socio-economically backward and deficient in the basic civic amenities. NTPC, as responsible corporate citizen has been addressing the issue of community development in the neighbourhood areas of its stations, which had been impacted due to establishment of the project. NTPC is also conscious about the need for socio-economic development of SC/ST community, the under privileged and needy segments in the neighbouring areas. Towards this, NTPC during 2004-05 adopted “Corporate Social Responsibility – Community Development (CSR-CD) Policy, July 04. Under this policy NTPC allocates funds to various stations for carrying out community development work in the area of health, education, drinking water and peripheral development.
