OIL Donates 3.2 CR


Oil India Limited (OIL) has contributed Rs.3.2 Crore towards the Odisha Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF) on 13 May.


The cheque was handed over by Rajeev Singhal, GM (F&A), OIL to  Bishnupada Sethi, Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) in SRC Office at Rajiv Bhawan.

Odisha is one of the worst affected states in the recently hit cyclone ‘FANI’ which made landfall in Puri on 3 May, 2019, leaving a trail of widespread devastation across the state and causing manifold misery to its people.

Said to be an extremely severe cyclonic storm since the super cyclone of 1999, ‘FANI’ affected nearly 11 districts in Odisha, ravaging homes and leading to large scale ecological, financial and infrastructural damage.

In the aftermath of the destruction, Naveen Pattanaik, Chief Minister of Odisha had made a request to Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas (MoPNG) and Skill Development for sending 10 Lakh litres (1000 KL) of kerosene to Odisha for relief works.

MoPNG has therefore requested Oil India Limited (OIL) for contributing the fund of Rs 3.20 Crores which is equal to the cost of 10 Lakh litres of kerosene.

And accordingly OIL donated the amount.

OIL is India’s second largest National Exploration & Production Company, is deeply pained by the devastation and stands in solidarity with the people of Odisha during these harsh hours
