NLC India Limited is in the forefront in fighting against Covid-19  right from February 2020 itself. A number proactive actions were taken by the Health Department of Township administration. Activities started from February 2020 include creating awareness among school children and college students, general public, demonstration of correct hand washing techniques, use of hand sanitizers and face masks.

Well before the lock down ordered by the Government of India, NLCIL has started its COVID-19 containment activities viz., Thermal screening of Employees including contract workmen coming to Units, Mines and Offices and general public entering Township, disinfecting vehicles and Goods carriers entering Township, disinfecting Public places like Central Bus stand. Main Bazaar, NLC GH etc., in massive scale.  Being a Public Utilities essential service provider, its Units/Mines/Offices are working with skeletal staff.

In NLCIL Hospital, a separate “fever clinic” was started and all Symptomatic cases and employees and their family members if with travel history are home quarantined and monitored daily for 28 days as per the guidelines of District Health authorities.  Medical shops and grocery shops are functioning under restricted timings by implementing social distancing norms.  To control crowding at Market place and to stagger the people while coming for purchase, Vegetable and Grocery shops have been opened in open areas in schools, Community Halls etc. with restricted timings strictly following Social distancing.

As a part of disinfecting Large Public places, Roads in Neyveli Township area and in order to cover large area in minimum span of time combined with optimal use of disinfecting chemical NLCIL has procured a ‘MISTER’ from M/s. BHEL, which is an effective Disinfectant sprayer which can spray disinfectant covering larger area in fine mist form.   Apart from buying one such Mister for Township use, being a socially responsible company, NLCIL has extended a helping hand to District Administration of Cuddalore by purchasing one such Mister along with a generator set for use in the Cuddalore District, at a cost of Rs.6.12 lakhs.

On 20.04.2020, NLCIL had handed over the MISTER to the Cuddalore District Administration for use to disinfect the municipal areas.  The Collector, Cuddalore District, appreciated the good work being carried out by the NLCIL on COVID-19 containment measures in its Thermal Plants, Mines, Township and offices and thanked the Management for donating the “MISTER”.
