Ravichandran Purushothaman said, “With our vision of ‘Engineering Tomorrow’s India’, we are always working towards a greener and sustainable tomorrow, keeping in mind the needs of our future generations. Through this initiative, we seek to give back to the society by providing the local communities access to a clean and usable water source and educate them on the importance of preserving water bodies.”
