SAIL has stood shoulder to shoulder in fighting the pandemic since its onset last year. The company contributed Rs 30 crore to the PM CARES Fund along with employees donating a day’s salary to the fund. Among the several efforts spearheaded by SAIL, it maximized its reach and collaborated with the local administration at its Plants and Units. The company’s healthcare services were mobilized in large numbers across its hospitals.

A COVID-19 testing facility was also set up at the SAIL-Rourkela Steel Plant’s Ispat General Hospital which has been functioning since then and contributing to Odisha’s fight against the pandemic. Participating actively in the Annadan yojana, SAIL distributed dry rations and food in its peripheral region.
