ONGC promotes ‘Saksham 2017’- Awareness Programme on Energy Conservation

In line with the Government’s Vision, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation has   embarked on a month-long oil and gas conservation campaign, christened   as Saksham, in its Corporate Office as well a work centres all over.   This is first time that the Government has changed the campaign format   from Oil and Gas Conservation Fortnight (OGCF) to Saksham for creating a   strong brand towards fuel conservation.

Hon’ble   Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Shri Dharamendra   Pradhan inaugurated the month long awareness drive on fuel conservation   (Sanrakshan Kshamta Mahotsav) on January 16th, 2017 organized by PCRA   and other Oil & Gas PSUs emphasizing on the need for   self-sufficiency in the oil and gas sector.

As   a part of Saksham, more than 5 lakhs school children and youth will be   actively involved in the awareness drive and programmes associated with it.

Celebrating   Saksham, ONGC has devised various awareness programmes to popularize   this energy awareness campaign amongst the employees, their families and   the local populace in its area of operations. Pan India campaigns like   Sit & Draw and Slogan Competition apart from Cyclothon, Walkathon   etc. are being organized at all work-centers of ONGC to actively engage   employees.

As a Responsible Corporate Citizen, ONGC has also accorded a special   grant-in-aid to PCRA for this program. This campaign aims to create   awareness among masses towards judicious utilization and conservation of   petroleum products along with use of energy efficient appliances and   switching to cleaner fuels.

ONGC has been enthusiastically promoting Saksham and is spreading awareness about fuel conservation.
