Former President of India Sh. Pranab Mukherjee and Haryana Chief Minister Shri Manohar Lal Khattar recently inaugurated ‘Gramalaya’ – Gram Sachivalaya at Harchandpur village in Haryana.
Harchandpur village is one of the selected villages under the ‘SMARTGRAM’ – smart model villages, which is an initiative of the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The project has been implemented by NBCC (India) Ltd., a state-owned Navratna public sector undertaking, under its CSR endeavour at cost of Rs. 34 lacs approximately.
NBCC has used Novel Habitech- Nivara Tantra housing technology, which apart from being a unique confluence of technology for ecological and affordable construction, is also disaster resilient.
Initiated by the former President of India, the SMARTGRAM initiative is to enable the local villagers, especially the economically weaker sections and low income group communities to empower themselves in accomplishing their aspiration of constructing a dwelling on their own which is comparable to the best in class modern structure and yet sustainable and affordable.
The Gramalaya has been designed to cater to not only the routine functioning of the Gram Panchayat official activities, but shall also enable the local villagers to showcase their products and produce along with space for activities. The building also houses a library and commercial office space.
It is worth mentioning that NBCC in its various social and community initiatives has also earlier constructed a four-storeyed hostel for the widows of Navy personnel. At Betul in Madhya Pradesh, it is constructing a Sainik rest house to serve as a focal point for all welfare activities related to ex-servicemen, war widows and their dependents.
