Due to high medical costs, residents in these remote regions are unable to receive high-quality healthcare services. There is a paucity of knowledge about healthcare in the tribal communities near the facility, and the medical services are out of their reach. North Karanpura makes sure that people receive accessible healthcare services completely free of charge through a hybrid healthcare programme. Palamu Hospital expressed gratitude to NTPC for helping the hospital battle Covid with the assistance of NTPC North Karanpura.
With a wide forte of North Karanpura in various CSR Paradigms the Youth are encouraged to foster and implement ideas for social development to drive on-ground change in rural India.
