Chaubey, Director (Technical), NHPC was also present on the occasion. The Hon’ble Chief Minister appreciated the humanitarian gesture of NHPC.
NHPC has voluntarily contributed Rs 2 Crore against the request letter received from the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, as the Joshi Math crisis has erupted due to ground subsidence/sinking in the area under District Chamoli of Uttarakhand, which has resulted in severe damage and sinking of existing houses/ infrastructure in the area. The government of Uttarakhand is rehabilitating the affected people at the safer location by vacating their houses and hotels in the area.
