Initiatives Towards Women's Empowerment - Jindal Stainless
Women Empowerment - Jindal Stainless

Our Initiatives


The Company has enabled over 200 SHGs to make regular monthly savings and inter-loaning. These groups have successfully engaged with local banks and disbursing loans and subsidies. They have also been exposed to various training programs on enterprise development and marketing of products. Our focus during the years has shifted from a Self Help Group (SHG) model to identifying micro-enterprise opportunities for women that encourages entrepreneurship. With various capacity building measures and trainings, we are inculcating confidence among women who are now eager to take initiatives on their own.


‘Asmita’ began as a small group of 20 enthusiastic young women from Jajpur, Odisha who came together to produce a range of designer home furnishing linen in Ikat print. These women started their journey as semi-skilled local seamstresses to skilled artisans who could produce quality products from a small production center in the remote location of Jajpur. The first range of products received heartwarming reviews and appreciation locally and also by well known brands like FabIndia.

The UN has invited Jindal Stainless Limited to be a member of an international leadership group being formed at the UN.

Project Stainless Aashiyana is a means to provide women and children a safe space to reach out and share their incidents with counsellors who can empower them.
