Cuttack:30/3/18; In an effort to touch the lives of grassroots level creative, talented and underprivileged artists of Odisha, JSPL Foundation, the CSR arm of Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL), extended support to 139 artist families during its second edition of Social Security Support Scheme here on Friday.

Under the initiative, JSPL Foundation will provide financial support of Rs 2,500/- per month to each of the families for next 24 months.

Pujya Bapa Ji delivered the support for the 1st month of the 2nd batch of recipients in the presence of Padma Bibhushan Dr. Raghunath Mohapatra, and Shallu Jindal, Co-chairperson of JSPL Foundation.

Addressing the gathering, Shallu Jindal said, “I’m deeply touched with the rich culture and heritage of Odisha. The glorious handloom, handicraft and artefacts are the perfect window of Odisha to showcase about its skillful and gifted artists. Today I am honoured to be present among them.”
