Under its Jindal Swayam Sampanna Nari programme, the JSPL Foundation, the CSR arm of Jindal Steel and Power (JSP), provided scholarships to 508 meritorious girls from the weaker sections of society in Odisha and Chhattisgarh. In a hybrid ceremony on August 9, 2022, Shallu Jindal, Chairperson of JSPL Foundation, inaugurated the programme and distributed scholarship letters to the selected girls.

Addressing the gathering, Jindal said, "Jindal Swayam Sampann Nari is a part of our endeavour to empower talented females and young girls from disadvantaged backgrounds to become self-sufficient. Many talented girls are not able to full fill their ambition to develop their skills or pursue higher education because of financial constraints. I am sure that our Jindal Swayam Sampanna Nari will be the wind beneath their way to fulfilling their dreams and empower them sustainably".

Participating in the programme, Yashasvini Jindal, Advisory Body Member of JSPL Foundation, expressed her gratitude for JSPL Foundation's efforts to assist girls from disadvantaged backgrounds in obtaining an education and realising their dreams in order to support their families and contribute to nation building.

Programme selected 508 girls

This programme selected 508 girls through a selection process that began in March 2022. They will receive financial assistance for course fees and other associated fees if they pursue vocational training or academic courses in professional/general streams at the institutions/colleges of their choice.

The selected students will be supported for their education in 20 institutions across the two states in various skill development programmes such as retail trade, nursing and ANM, beauty therapist, tailoring, computer hardware, as well as academic and professional courses such as Post Graduate Programmes, MPhil, Engineering, Medical, ITI, Law, social work, and others. The Foundation will transfer the funds directly to the educational institutions where they are enrolled.

In his welcome address, Prashant Kumar Hota, President and Group Head (CSR and Education) of JSP, emphasised the Jindal Swayam Sampanna Nari program's objective and vision. JSP's Angul Location Head and Executive Director Hridayeshwar Jha, Jindal Power's Executive Director and Head Tamnar Chhavi Nath Singh, JSP's Barbil Unit Head Brij Badhadra, OP Jindal University Vice-Chancellor Dr RD Patidar, JSP's Vice President(Liaison & Public Relations, CSR) Sanjeev Chauhan, and other senior officials were present and inspired the students.

The chosen girls expressed gratitude to the JSPL Foundation for its assistance in allowing them to pursue their dreams of education and skill development. Punjipathra Nilesh Shah, Head of JSP's Steel Structure Division, presented the vote of thanks.
