In order to create a better ambience in the canteens located in its plant premises, the Welfare Department of the plant has taken numerous initiatives not just to further improve the general hygiene of the canteens, but also to make them employee-friendly.

Major facelift done

Many canteens inside the plant have been given a facelift and furnished with employee-friendly facilities. The ‘Aahar’ canteen in the Administrative Building and the Sinter Plant-II canteens have been given a major facelift. The dining space and service areas have been fitted with floor tiles. Aahar has also been given a false ceiling, along with venetian blinds, modern furniture and a new set of crockery. Modern water purifiers have been fitted in three major canteens namely Aahar, Byanjan and Swadist to provide cool and pure drinking water to employees. The hygienic conditions in the canteens are being checked regularly and punitive actions are being taken against the violators. A competition ‘Shine and Rise’ is also being organised that will recognise canteens for being the most hygienic.
