As support pours in from individuals and institutions across the nation, the Odisha Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF) is witnessing its net collections rise everyday. The latest one to join the list of contributors is Adani Group.
The Adani Group has committed Rs 25 crore to the CMRF to help rebuild the state ravaged by Cyclone Fani. The Group has also said that it will be extending full support to the state government's rehabilitation efforts for those affected, reports Hindu Business Line.
As part of rehabilitation work, Dhamra Port Company Limited (DPCL), a wholly owned unit of Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone Ltd (APSEZ) is coordinating with government officials and their on-ground staff for distribution of food, water and medical supplies.
“The Adani Group stands united with the state administration and the people of Odisha in this hour of despair. For immediate relief, we commit to contribute Rs 25 crore to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund. Going forward, we also plan to provide key resources for the massive rehabilitation work underway. We want to reassure the people of Odisha that the Adani Group will work shoulder to shoulder to rebuild this beautiful state,” said Karan Adani, chief executive officer, APSEZ.
