Officer asks IT firms to adopt villages


The block development officer (BDO) of Mulshi taluka has urged companies based in the Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park to ‘adopt’ any of the 95 villages located close by to help build basic civic infrastructure, sanitation and also create better educational facilities.

Responding to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’, BDO Shalini Kadu held an informal meeting with representatives of the Hinjewadi Industries Association to discuss ways in which the companies can contribute towards development in the region.
