Dr. Jitendra Singh receives cheque for J&K flood relief from PEPCO Bank
The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh received a cheque of Rs. 10 lakh for flood relief in Jammu & Kashmir from the Managing Director, Repatriates Cooperative Finance & Development Bank Ltd. (REPCO Bank), Shri R. Varadarajan, here today. The cheque was handed over through Shri S. C. Panda, Special Secretary & Financial Adviser, by Shri R. Varadarajan, Managing Director, REPCO Bank.


Pertinent to mention here that REPCO Bank is a Bank promoted by the Government of India, Ministry of Home Affairs in association with the governments of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh. The main objective of the Bank is rehabilitation of repatriates mainly from Sri Lanka and Burma, though the Bank has now also begun undertaking diverse activities to offer services other than repatriates. The amount of Rs.10 Lakh donated by the Bank is a part of the Corporate Social Reforms (CSR) activities.

Appreciating the gesture, Dr. Jitendra Singh said, it should be a matter of great satisfaction for the flood-hit people of J & K and at the same time, an inspiration for philanthropists and social-minded agencies across the country to donate generously for rebuilding and reconstruction of the damages caused by the floods.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said that with the support of the Central Government, Army and Paramilitary forces, the flood rescue and relief operations were carried out without any waste of time, which helped in minimizing the losses. However, while the rehabilitation work continues, experts in Disaster Management and social scientists will also be expected to evaluate and provide inputs for prevention of such catastrophe in future, he added.
