  Social commitment
The GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMR-VF) Corporate Social wing of GMR Group of Companies functions in the vicinity of the GMR companies’ business operational areas.
Ever since its establishment, GIDL, through our Foundation has been an active force in improving the quality of life of villages in the neighborhood of our units. We are proud to bring in sustainable development among the communities where we operate. Our constant interaction with the communities leads us to bring forth better ways of assisting them.
Our efforts include:
  • Assured and streamlined market as well as income for the sugarcane produced
  • Efficient farm-gate through direct procurement and prompt payments, thus eliminating middlemen
  • Procurement of agricultural wastes like cane trash, jute stick, groundnut shell, paddy husk, etc. that are used as fuel at our co-generation unit, ensuring returns on investment and additional income
  • Initiatives to generate additional income such as dairy development, financial and technical support for domestic dairy for the sugarcane farmers
Educational facilities and additional benefits:
  • Established schools with necessary infrastructure offering quality education
  • Preference given to farmers' children during admissions
  • Concessions in tuition fees
Medical Facilities:
  • Organising regular health camps for communities
  • A mobile medical unit provides free treatment to the aged and the needy in villages located around the sugar plant
Improved infrastructure brings a direct benefit by way of better roads, medical care,irrigation facilities etc.
It is indeed a gratifying experience for GIDL to see the farming communities of Sankili prosper directly or indirectly through our initiatives.
