Sundargarh/Rourkela: Former Supreme Court Judge and Oversight Authority of Odisha Mineral Bearing Areas Development Corporation (OMBADC) Justice Ananga Kumar Patnaik has appreciated the performance of welfare projects underway in Sundargarh district with financial support from OMBADC.

“People, especially in rural areas and the tribal population, have immensely benefitted from the OMBADC-aided projects. It is strengthening the livelihood of the masses.

During his field visit, Justice Patnaik took stock of various projects covering sectors like livelihood, drinking water, healthcare, mother and child development, education & skill development, environment preservation and tourism promotion activities undertaken in the district with financial assistance from OMBADC.

Sundargarh collector Nikhil Pavan Kalyan gave a detailed presentation on various projects during a review meeting on first day.
