In line with the Tata Power Philosophy, Industrial Energy Limited has implemented the Education Excellence Programme, to strengthen the basic knowledge of the poor and back ward classes of the students in Jajpur district of Odisha. The programme is implemented in joint collaboration with CAAD, a leading NGO of Odisha.
The programme has benefitted more than 3000 students from the poor and backward section of the society in improving quality of education in Mathematics, Science and English subject from standard 6th to 10 Students.
The well trained team at Industrial Energy Limited along with the able support of CAAD implemented a pre-programme strategy for smooth sailing of the programme which included identification of the potential Schools in the tribal belt followed by Staff induction and orientation training.

Relevant study materials are also supplied in local languages for better engagement along with appointment of local teachers and female teachers. While running the programme the students are regularly monitored through examinations and review processes. The students are supported with necessary guidance accordingly.
