8 people with various disabilities were given Artificial limbs by MUNPL
Artificial limbs by MUNPL – Prayagraj: The Meja Urja Nigam Pvt. Limited (MUNPL), Meja, has provided artificial limbs to eight differently abled people. Between December 21 and March this year, villagers from villages such as Kodhar, Dharwara, Niriya, Bijora, Pipraon, and Saliya Khurd received these limbs during special camps organised by the corporation.
After the assistance provided by NTPC, Meja, the lives of people like Lalaji, Nebbu lal, Ramsrugar, Satish Chandra, Lalji, Keshav Prasad, Arvind Nath, and Rajendra Prasad Yadav have changed.
“MUNPL has provided many disabled folks a new lease on life through its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities,” says NTPC Meja’s public relations officer, Amlan Das.
MUNPL, in collaboration with Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation of India (ALIMCO), organized a ‘artificial limb distribution’ camp in December 2021, where artificial limbs were distributed to many disabled people from nearby villages with the goal of assisting them in becoming self-sufficient.”
MUNPL held a screening camp prior to the distribution camp in the last three months, when medical officers took all beneficiaries’ measurements so that limbs could be fitted simply and appropriately.

Anil Kumar, CEO of MUNPL, expressed thanks for the program’s success, saying, “MUNPL has taken the initiative to conduct a ‘free artificial limb distribution camp’ for the disabled persons with the goal of helping them become ‘aatmanirbhar‘ (self-reliant).”
Eight villages were covered, including Kodhar, Dharwara, Niriya, Bijora, Pipraon, and Saliya Khurd, with residents from six villages attending the camp.
“I lost my limb in a car accident in 2016,” said Lalaji, a middle-aged man from Dharwara village. Despite consulting a prominent doctor in Prayagraj, undergoing many procedures, and taking numerous drugs, my efforts and hard-earned money were all for naught. The infection spread, and the same doctor recommended that I have my entire leg amputated. I performed everything he instructed to reduce my pain, and my status shifted from abled to impaired.” Lalaji used a walker to reach to MUNPL’s medical camp in order to obtain his replacement leg.
“I couldn’t do anything after the amputation,” he continued. I couldn’t go to my farm land, and I couldn’t find any work to support my family. Then, in December 2021, I learned that Meja Urja Nigam, a power plant in our hamlet, had organized a medical camp to provide artificial limbs to disadvantaged people like me. And now, without the help of others, I can walk correctly and carry out my normal household tasks. “Most significantly, I am employed and able to support my family financially,” he continued.
