IL&FS Social Inclusion Group (SIG) has been established to develop & implement socioeconomic development projects in IL&FS project catchment areas. In order to do so, the dependence on our partners is substantial. Mrida has been an outstanding associate in our endeavour to bring about a change in the lives of the marginalized in a small cluster of villages in Bareilly district. Their dedicated team has a rare ability to visualize, plan and execute on the ground with an earthy enthusiasm which connects with the common man. Their energy and speed of execution has exceeded our expectations and they have managed to set up micro-grids and mobilize communities in a matter of days. We hope we can work with Mrida in our other catchments including Himachal Pradesh & Punjab.
