Goa Carbon Ltd is beginning to see the effect of its endeavour into meaningful social responsibility after appointing Fiinovation, New Delhi, as its resource in leading it to NGOs local to Udaybata, Paradeep Port, Odisha. Fiinovation brought into the picture the People’s Forum, Bhubaneshwar, and the two parties struck up an understanding with Goa Carbon Ltd for projects at Paradeep.

Apart from planning and commencing a project for the good of the ‘basti’ around the Goa Carbon Ltd Plant at Paradeep, the People’s Forum also undertook a small project for the local school, Ghanaghalia UP School, Bhitargarg, Udaybata, Paradeep.

K. Mishra, Senior Manager (P & A) and Mr. Bailochan Jena, Associate General Manager (QC), together held a meeting at the school premises to mark the handover by Goa Carbon Ltd of useful items, to the school.
