Indian Oil to give Rs. 50 Cr for Cheetah Reintroduction Project
According to a statement released by Indian Oil Corp. on Tuesday, the firm will donate Rs. 50 crores over the course of four years as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) program to the Cheetah reintroduction Project.
A source population of 15 to 20 cheetahs will be transported into the Kuno National Park in Madhya Pradesh as part of the initiative from Namibia and South Africa.
In August of this year, Indian Oil and the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the transcontinental relocation of cheetahs. The additional director general (Project Tiger) and member secretary, NTCA, SP Yadav, and SM Vaidya, chairman of Indian Oil, signed the memorandum of understanding.

“The MoU between Indian Oil and NTCA shows the country’s commitment to fostering a greener, happier, and more energetic new India. I have no doubt that NTCA will manage this project with mission-critical focus. Our top aim of protecting India’s natural environment and cultural legacy is aligned with the Cheetah Introduction Project. Our mascot, the now-famous Indian Oil Rhino, continues to stand as proof of our dedication, said Vaidya.
