Before we indulge in taking about us, let us first take knowledge of what exactly is the Products that we are dealing with: Transformers are used to transform the voltage from one level to another required level i.e. high voltage to low voltage or vice versa. Transformers used for distributing electricity at low voltages are called Distribution Transformers working at a voltage of mainly of 11KV to 0.433 KV.
As a responsible business, Mahendra Group takes pride in being socially inclined and focuses on sustained and effective CSR projects. The CSR policy aligns with the corporate philosophy, which means living and working together for common good. Our employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and skills and enjoy the experience of giving back to the communities in which their work.
Mahendra Group is committed to feeding the world in a responsible way; reducing our environmental impact; and improving the communities where we live and work. We are passionate about our goal to be the global leader in nourishing people and operating responsibly.
"To actively contribute to the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate. In doing so, build a better, sustainable way of life for the weaker sections of society and raise the country's human development index."
While carrying forward this philosophy, our legendary leader, Mr. Mahendra Kumar Agarwal, weaved in the concept of 'sustainable livelihood', which transcended cheque book philanthropy. In his view, it was unwise to keep on giving endlessly. Instead, he felt that channelising resources to ensure that people have the wherewithal to make both ends meet would be more productive.
Our focus is on the all-round development of the communities around our plants located mostly in distant rural areas and tribal belts. All our Group companies have Rural Development Cells, which are the implementation bodies.
Our partners in development are government bodies, district authorities, village panchayats and the end beneficiaries - the villagers. The Government has, in their 5-year plans, special funds earmarked for human development and we recourse to many of these.
At the same time, we network and collaborate with like-minded bilateral and unilateral agencies to share ideas, draw from each other's experiences, and ensure that efforts are not duplicated. At another level, this provides a platform for advocacy.
Our focus areas
There are 3,000 villages across the length and breadth of our country. We are planning to reach more than 7 million people annually. Over 60 per cent of these live below the poverty line and belong to scheduled castes and tribes.
The Group transcends the conventional barriers of business and reaches out to the marginalised as a matter of duty and to bring in a more equitable society.
Our rural development activities span five key areas and our single-minded goal here is to help build model villages that can stand on their own feet. Our focus areas are healthcare, education, sustainable livelihood, infrastructure and espousing social causes.
