Indian Oil, a Maharatna PSU under the administrative control of the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas (MoPNG), is sponsoring cochlear implants surgeries of 14 children in Delhi-NCR, under its corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative. The parents of these children said they are indebted to the Indian Oil for sponsoring Cochlear Implants surgeries with the contribution of 93.91 lakhs through Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation (ALIMCO), a Miniratna PSU under Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment.
In June 2018, IndianOil Refinery headquarters and ALIMCO have signed MoU for the surgery and fitment of Cochlear Implant to 14 children with hearing disabilities in Delhi NCR region, under its CSR initiative. In a statement, ALIMCO said that it has successfully completed the project and as a result, now 14 children with complete or profound hearing loss are hearing normally and will be able to speak in a few months with professional speech therapy rehabilitation.
