As a part of Saksham, more than 5 lakhs schoolchildren and youth will be actively involved in the awareness drive and programmes associated with it.

Celebrating Saksham, ONGC has devised various awareness programmes to popularize this energy awareness campaign amongst the employees, their families and the local populace in its area of operations. Pan India campaigns like Sit & Draw and Slogan Competition apart from Cyclothon, Walkathon etc. are being organized at all work-centers of ONGC to actively engage employees.

This campaign aims to create awareness among masses towards judicious utilization and conservation of petroleum products along with use of energy efficient appliances and switching to cleaner fuels.

ONGC has been enthusiastically promoting Saksham and is spreading awareness about fuel conservation.
