Initiatives:

·         Invested $0.47 MM for water conservation and $4.6 MM for ongoing projects in 2006-2007

·         Installed 9 check dams and 18 recharge wells for water harvesting

·         Set up 36 lift irrigation projects, 27 small check dams and 150 tanks for rainwater harvesting at Renukoot, Uttar Pradesh between 2004-2007

·         Provided irrigation water for 16,000 Hectares of land, increasing agricultural production by 17,850 mt and benefiting 20,655 farmers

·         Invested $21,000 in 2006-2007 for water conservation and recycling projects saving 50 MM liters of water per year

·         Built rainwater storage capacity of 70 MM liters at Hosur, Karnataka in 2007

·         Improved Groundwater table in Hosur (e.g. a depleted well started yielding O.1 MM liters of water per day)

·         Implemented PLC1based systems which contributed to the reduction of water usage by 16% during 2007-2008

·         Reduced water consumption per vehicle manufactured from 6,380 liters in 2003-2004 to 4,620 liters in 2006-2007 at their plant in Nasik, Maharashtra

·         Used water cleaning and recirculation systems in the paint section of the plant to save 3,00,000 liters per year
