Tata AutoComp Systems has responded to natural disasters on different occasions as the Uttarakhand floods, Kashmir floods and the Tsunami that hit Tamil Nadu. The response has been through deployment of manpower for relief work and also contributions to buy essential commodities. It has trained select employees to manage disaster relief.
Tata AutoComp Systems has also responded to drought mitigation work in Osmanabad district of Marthwada (Maharashtra). This area faces repeated droughts due to its geographical location. Until last decade every third year was drought like and every fifth was severest. There is a vicious cycle of over exploitation of ground water resources, degradation of soil and loss of vegetation. Streams flowing though villages have long since dried up.
Long term project is under implementation to control soil and water erosion and to increase productivity by Nallah (doh) Deepening, well recharging and repairs and capacity building. To make the project inclusive the local community has been involved which has also resulted into increase in work for landless cultivators.
The efforts have also resulted to increase in kharif crop area and increase in productivity.
Tata AutoComp Systems is associated with Kashig village situated in Mulshi fort for its overall development in partnership with Rotary club.
A project of creating water reservoir to address the water needs of the village was completed. Previously water used to be pumped through electric motors from the foothill to the water tanks in the village.
The purpose of the project is to create more reliable fresh water source up the hill and to reduce the consumption of electricity by avoiding pumping water from the foothill.
