On the occasion, Mr. A.K Tomer, Executive Director, Corporate Planning, Maruti Suzuki India Limited said, “We recognize that village communities require a comfortable and inexpensive space for social gatherings and events such as weddings, panchayat meetings, etc. This emerged as a key requirement during regular interactions of our field team with the community and in our needs-assessment activities. We worked along with the village panchayat to address this need with a long-term perspective. I thank community members and especially the village Sarpanch for their support and contribution. We are handing over this facility to the community today with the confidence that they will manage and maintain it so that the community hall can serve the people sustainably for many years to come.”
