Maruti Suzuki, as part of the CSR, has inaugurated its 5th Water ATM facility in the state of Gujarat. The water ATM, being setup in Naviyani village in Surendra Nagar district, will provide relief to over 2800 community members. The people can avail fresh and clean water at a nominal cost of 35 paisa per litre. Over 1000 litres of pure water will be generated in one hour by the ATM. Maruti Suzuki joined hands with Waterlife India to set up this Water ATM at an investment cost of more than Rs 20 Lakhs with the land water and electricity being provided by the village panchayat.

Dedicating the facility to the village community, Mr A K Tomer, Executive Advisor, Corporate Social Responsibility, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said that the access to drinking water was identified as a major issue in Maruti Suzuki adopted villages. In Naviyani Village, the TDS levels of bore-well water was as high as 2000, making it unsafe for human consumption. The 10-stage UV filtration process used in the Water ATM has now brought down the levels by around 90%, which is within the permissible range. Moreover, Maruti Suzuki addressing the quality concerns, has also installed a display screen to update about the standards of the water. The Water Quality display screen shows the purity of water in terms of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids), temperature and ph level for the users.

Maruti Suzuki has done several remarkable works in the country as part of CSR

Tomar said that it is a very rewarding experience to see people benefit from our CSR initiatives. Our endeavor is to transform the adopted villages through interventions in areas of water and sanitation, health, education and creation of common community assets. Maruti Suzuki also thanked the Panchyat members, village community and the partner agencies for their support in setting up this facility. Waterlife India is responsible for the maintenance and operations of this water ATM for next ten years. The facility will be owned by the village panchayat. Just so you know, Maruti Suzuki has established 21 Water ATMs across 20 of its adopted villages in Haryana and Gujarat, benefiting over 10,000 households.
