Nepal, which continues to be jolted by earthquake aftershocks since the big earthquake on 25th April 2015, is now working to put itself back on track. Countries around the world are pitching in and India has already played a major role and fulfilled the responsibility of a good neighbour. Individuals and corporate houses continue to pool in for ensuring more aid and speedier rehabilitation for the people of Nepal.
In a bid to boost the ongoing rehabilitation and rebuilding efforts in Nepal, Bajaj Group has announced a contribution of ₹ 10 crore to the relief fund. The aid will be routed through the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund of India.
Further, a sum of Rs 50 lakhs is also provided to SEWA, an NGO dedicated to needy & self-employed women workers in Nepal, mainly directed to its cluster at Konkhana.
Bajaj Auto’s motorcycles are widely available across 46 districts of Nepal through 175 dealerships and service centers which employ over 2000 persons.
Mr. Rakesh Sharma, President – International Business for Bajaj Auto Ltd. noted while announcing the grant, “Nepal is a very important country for Bajaj Auto and we have been there for more than 20 years. We have over 3.5 lakh Bajaj motorcycles on the country’s roads. We are working with our consumers, dealers and technicians towards the quick repair of damaged vehicles so that people can be mobile once again.”
He further added, “In this time of distress we stand by our friends in Nepal and this contribution is a small reaffirmation of our commitment to the people of Nepal. Through our distributor M/S Hansraj Hulaschand, we are also ensuring that immediate relief is provided to the affected people.”
