Jammu, September 06, 2021: Prince Pipes and Fittings Limited has undertaken the initiative to distribute Storefit water tanks to villages along the LOC in J&K
As part of this activity, 75 units of Storefit overhead water tanks of 500 litres capacity, are being distributed to the villages and the Indian Army is assisting in distribution within the local area. The Indian Army regularly carries out relief and assistance work to benefit a large section of the State’s population affected by terrorism, focusing on infrastructure development; health and sanitation; women and youth empowerment; community development projects and education.
Prince Pipes will also undertake installation of the water tanks, which will require other related products like pipes and fittings as well as plumber assistance.
Mr. Parag Chheda, Joint Managing Director, Prince Pipes and Fittings Limited, said, “As a nation, we have indeed come a long way with great progress in several spheres including technology, finance, sports, education, manufacturing and yet several issues continue to seek greater attention like water scarcity. The Central Government has undertaken several initiatives under Jal Jeevan Mission to ensure availability of water for every home and eliminate the burden that women often have face to fetch water from long distances. We are honored to participate in this activity for villages along LOC for their health and sanitation drive, particularly considering the ongoing Covid crisis. We are grateful to the Indian Army for supporting us in this endeavor to distribute our Storefit water tanks in this region.”
Mr. Ashok Mehra, VP Sales & Marketing, Prince Pipes and Fittings Limited added, “The Prince brand reflects the organisation’s belief in ‘inclusive growth’ – creating profitable growth while bringing benefit to society and all stakeholders. Water distribution & transportation is a critical issue across our country especially at remote locations as around villages along LOC. We are very thankful to the Indian Army for helping us in this activity of distributing Storefit water tanks to villages, and we hope it will bring ease of living, better health and improve their quality of life. The tanks come with excellent qualities to protect and secure water – the most precious element of our daily life.”
