The Business Standard in its 8th March, 2015 edition reported that software giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has announced that it has completed the survey for the construction of sanitation facilities for girls and would start construction by March-end. TCS had committed Rs 100 crores last year for the construction of toilets for girls under the Swachh Bharat (Clean India) mission.
TCS has been allotted 1100 schools and under the first phase, it plans to build toilets in 860 schools across five districts of Andhra Pradesh, eight districts in Telengana and two of Bihar. It hopes to finish work by the end of the year.
In my opinion, such quick and prompt action from the company shows the amount of importance it attaches to such social endeavors. Along with the likes of Bharti Airtel, Vedanta and Larsen & Toubro , the company in joining this noble campaign , is truly representative of the rich tradition of social benevolence and community service which The Tata Group is widely acclaimed for.
