New Delhi: The country is currently fighting to limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Many countries across the world including India are facing an unprecedented disaster due to COVID-19. As a result, a national disaster has been declared under the Disaster Management Act-2005 and various provisions of the same have been invoked. Being a young and lean organisation, Solar Energy Corporation of India Limited (SECI) has always strived to be a responsible corporate citizen. As part of its efforts to contribute towards the fight against the COVID-19, SECI has contributed a sum of Rs 1.17 crores which is around 46 percent of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) budget for 2019-20 towards the PM CARES Fund. In addition to this, SECI’s employees are contributing one day’s salary to the PM CARES Fund for the same cause.
