Project Description

Rain Water Harvesting Project

The project involves pumping water to 150 Meters high by installing a pipeline (2" Diameter) of 1500 Meters. This water will be pulled by a submersible pump of 10Hp. These efforts will result in a huge relief to the drought conditions faced by the villagers. The uniqueness of the project lies in the synergism where in the government tackles the drought condition, corporates commit to social responsibility and voluntary organizations execute these efforts. After observing this commitment, villagers have started digging a channel for installing the pipe line. The benefits of this water supply scheme was made available to the villagers from the month of March 2016.

Jalyukta Shivar Yojna

This project is in tandem with our CSR objective of water conservation. In association with Jnana Prabodhini (Shiv Paradesh), KPIT volunteers conducted a survey of drought conditions in villages near Pune. It was observed that although Kashedi village (15 km away from Panshet dam near Pune) falls in the water catchment area of Panshet dam, it was facing acute drought issue. The only source of drinking water in this village was a natural reservoir that was drying out, thus creating a dependency on the government aided water tankers. Being a small village with scarce population, there were limitations in the way government could fund to resolve drinking water issue of the village. After consultation with local government authorities and Jnana Prabodhini’s irrigation experts, KPIT decided to pump water into that natural reservoir from the Panshet dam backwaters present in the vicinity of the village. Anil Patwardhan, Chief Financial Officer & Shekhar Sonsale, AVP - Facilities & Logistics Management, of the Company, flagged off this project in the village.

Afforestation at Nelamangala

In the month of August 2015, KPIT in association with Youth For Seva successfully completed the launch of Afforestation at Nelamangala event. As a part of this afforestation initiative at Nelamangala, 20 volunteers actively engaged in planting of 100 saplings along with mulching and weeding of 50 saplings. Throughout the year 2015- 16 we planted more than 500 trees across 2 villages (Aladahalli and Kerekatignur).

Shivanahalli Tree Plantation & Maintenance Project

In 2015, as a part of the Environment week celebration at KPIT, Company visited Ramakrishna Mission Campus, Shivanahalli, to restore the forest green cover and biodiversity in the Bannerughatta National Park area. With the advent of industrialization, IT sector expansion and ever growing population, Bangalore has already started losing its tag as the Garden city. Ramakrishna Mission, Shivanahalli, have embarked upon a gigantic task of enriching the environment by planting a variety of trees from Western Ghats and other forest region. Already 150+ acres of land has been converted to pure forest which stands as the evidence. KPIT in association with Youth For Seva has joined hands with Ramakrishna Mission to support this great initiative of increasing the green cover of Bangalore by planting 300 saplings wherein 50 of our KPITes actively participated in this initiative.
