In a bid to complement the Government’s Vidyanjali initiative to strengthen the quality of education in government schools, PNB has kick-started CSR efforts on the occasion of Republic Day 2022. The Bank generously contributed to SDMC Primary Girls School in Delhi. Computer and printer have been provided to the school at Palam Village Dwarka so that girl students with poor financial backgrounds and no smartphones at home could be given hard copies of study materials. Another school at Rajpur Khurd, Mohan Garden has been given commercial RO system and book shelves as per immediate requirement of the school.

Honorable Prime Minister had launched Vidyanjali initiative last year with an aim to strengthen the quality of education in schools. Contributions are made to support co-scholastic activities by developing schools in the areas of civil infrastructure, digital equipment, classroom support material, etc. PNB reiterated its long-standing commitment towards society and is excited to be part of this great initiative to transform the education system in the country.

Keeping up with the year-long theme of ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mohatsav’, PNB Parivar across all the zones in the country celebrated the supreme sacrifice of our leaders and brave soldiers with patriotic fervour.
