NTPC Ltd, India’s largest power generation company, has taken a significant step towards enhancing healthcare infrastructure and supporting patient welfare by signing an agreement with the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi. The agreement, signed on 13th February 2024, paves the way for the establishment of a “Patient-Attendant Waiting Facility/Shelter” within the AIIMS campus, under NTPC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative, with an estimated cost of Rs. 8 crores.

By investing in healthcare infrastructure, NTPC is not only fulfilling its CSR obligations but also reinforcing its commitment to social responsibility and sustainable development.

This initiative is expected to set a benchmark for CSR activities in the healthcare sector, inspiring other organizations to step forward and make meaningful contributions to society.
