HUMAN RIGHTS FIELD TRIP 2015
On 12th March, 17 students of the First Year Human Rights Dept and Human Rights and Empowerment Course, accompanied by the faculty, Ms. Druhi Dasgupta visited on field trip the Budge Power Generation Station under CESC. The chief objective was to explore environmental rights, an aspect of human rights studies.
An informative PowerPoint presentation gave the students an insight into the working of the plant. Being a thermal power generating station, coal is the prime input. The enormous quantity of by-products and pollutants generated was dealt with so as to reduce pollution levels.
Apart from generation and distribution of electricity, the firm is engaged in a number of CSR projects which focus on health, education community development and environment.
Post this interactive session, the students visited the DMP or Water De-Mineralizing Plant where the water used in boilers is made mineral and bacteria-free and the highly protected control rooms from where the entire functioning of the plant is tracked and supervised through all of which they understood the need for judicious use of electricity and natural resources.
