An Integrated Development Organization

CONCEPT :  Janma Bhoomi - Karma Bhoomi

This concept essentially implies that we shall strive to repay our onus towards “Janma Bhoomi”, to which we owe our existence through the resources we attain through our  “Karma Bhoomi”.

It is a common observation that at our work place ‘Karma Bhoomi’ we get recognition on our own, but on the other hand at our birth place ‘Janma Bhoomi’ we get recognized through our parents.

 “Janma Bhoomi - Karma Bhoomi” will provide a platform to salute one’s parents / motherland.
