It was MLA Harish Poonja, who made an appeal that resulted in the MRPL giving a grant under the CSR to construct toilets at a total of 55 schools at the cost of Rs. 5.50 crore. This project, once completed will result in government schools having well-built high-tech toilets, the lack of which was earlier seen as a setback. 

The construction of these high tech toilets in schools began in the month of October in 2019. While the work was supposed to be finished in just six months, it dragged on till now because of the circumstances brought about by COVID-19. This led to the work being postponed indefinitely. However, around 95% of the work has now been completed with only work in 5 schools pending. Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited officials have greatly applauded the exceptional quality of work put in by Ujire Ganesh, the contractor. 

MRPL had generously allotted the highest amount possible for a grant to construct toilets in government schools. Tiles have been used and modern commodes have been installed. MLA Harish Poonja remarked how utmost importance was paid to the betterment of schools and the village. While the original appeal was made with the intention of receiving a grant to construct toilets in 100 schools, the Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and other officials of MRPL provided a grant sufficient enough to build toilets in 55 schools. According to Veena T Shetty, the DGM of MRPL’s CSR talked of how the MRPL’s CSR section first gave funds to construct 20 toilets and later gave funds to construct 35 toilets, making it a total of 55 toilets. The quality of work is truly excellent and due priority has been given to cleanliness and standard of work.
