Corporate Social Responsibility

Environment Support

We care for the environment and are fully committed to preserve and safeguard flora and fauna surrounding the tea estates. Our farming systems in tea plantations follow green practices by using water, land and plant protection chemicals sparingly and effectively in ways that safeguard their availability for future generations. We believe in sustainable agriculture at all our tea gardens. We ensure that tea garden productivity is enhanced over the long term by taking steps to reduce the adverse impacts on the natural resources and associated ecosystems. Methods have been created to produce Tea in a way which is beneficial for people and the planet. Low input agriculture is a priority. It is also ensured that social benefits, both in monetary and non-monetary terms are maximized.

The Aerospace and Defence division has been driving the “go green” initiative since inception. Our manufacturing operations are 95% paperless. By the end of 2021, the division shall be fully “green operations”. The new campus near the Bangalore International Airport is an energy efficient building. In the first phase of construction, it has been awarded LEED “GOLD” certification based on compliance with different aspects of sustainability. At the completion of the second phase, it shall be “Platinum” rated. Re-usability is the mantra in all aspects of operations.


Education And Health Care Support

It is a company endeavour to work towards the betterment of employees in the belief that healthy and happy employees make a productive workforce. Various healthcare plans, either through captive insurance or through government systems such as Employee State Insurance (ESI) or through company sponsored insurance are provided.

Education is a life changing factor for every individual and the company recognizes its duty towards future citizens. Towards this end, free-of-charge primary education and support for educational facilities is provided for the children of employees positioned at remote places such as North East. Free coaching is provided to students of class X to help them succeed in exams. Transport facilities are made available for the students writing the exams.

We truly believe that children are the future of our country. We joined hands with Akshaya Patra (a non-profit organization), to support the Mid-day meal programme implemented in government schools and government aided schools to support right-to-education and counter malnutrition of socially-economically disadvantaged children.

To promote girls’ education at tea estates, monetary incentives in the form of scholarships are awarded to girl students. Dikom Tea Estate also managed to send two of its girl aspirants to Asian University for Women in Bangladesh for higher studies.

We help the local schools in tea estates in different ways in terms of providing infrastructure to conduct classes. We provided desks, benches and book shelves to Phulampur High School, Sri Sri Madhabdeb School, Nagrijuli High School and Modarkhat Girls High School.

Some of the estates run Garden Welfare Centers with the help of government funded Kosturba Gandhi Training Centre where vocational training is provided to the youth to augment the family income.

Rossell Techsys is actively supporting the “Skill India” initiative on an ongoing basis and has been a leader in the aerospace and defence domain. Starting off in 2014, when it became the first Industry sponsor to the Boeing championed “Learn and Earn” course for aerospace and defence interconnect solutions, in partnership with NTTF (, it has been regularly conducting multiple such Learn and Earn courses every year. Students of these courses have been absorbed in the company. Till date over 350 students have been trained on discipline specific technical skills and provided opportunities for gaining employable skills thereby enhancing the self-confidence to achieve success in their future career.


Community Support

As a socially responsible company, Rossell India Ltd. believes in supporting the community through philanthropic initiatives.

We have partnered with ProVISION ASIA- a social trust dedicated to empowering people with special needs and helping community at large- to sponsor food supplies to low income families.

Wheelchair can prove to be life-transforming for people impacted by mobility challenges due to physical disabilities. To this aim, Rossell India Ltd. partnered with proVISION ASIA, a not-for-profit organization, to donate 50 wheelchairs to people with special needs. ProVISION ASIA provides mobility aids like wheelchairs, crutches and walkers, free of cost, empowering people touched with physical disabilities to lead a life of dignity and independence.

Rossell tea estates have always followed the motto “Health is Wealth”. Sanitation plays a major role in community health. Sanitation works to repair the toilets and construction of septic tanks are undertaken on a regular basis. Individual toilet facilities were constructed to provide hygienic sanitation to every worker household. Numerous awareness programs were conducted to end open defecation. As a result, Dikom Tea Estate received ‘Free from open defecation’ status and was felicitated by the honourable CM of the state. Dikom Tea Estate, in collaboration with ITA- Sustainability cell, established a project “SANGINEE” to create awareness about menstrual hygiene and use of sanitary napkins and provided low cost sanitary napkins. The estate also provided sanitary napkins in flood affected areas.

Rossell takes its responsibility towards the society seriously. Working in partnership with Mother’s Club (a self- help group), along with Tea garden workers Union, it created awareness for the adverse effects caused by consumption of illicit alcohol and decided to make Dikom Tea Estate illicit distilled liquor free.

Awareness programs in the form of motivational campaigns, posters and audio-visual aids were taken to discourage the age old tradition of consuming tea with salt among tea garden workers causing health risks. ABITA recognised the initiatives by awarding ‘Best Family Health Award’ three times.

In A&D division, some of the community support activities include blood donation camps, support to various states during floods and natural disasters, support to various NGOs participating in social service activities. The company also provides opportunities for inclusion of the differently-abled and veterans in the A&D space.


Staff Welfare Support

The company supports a number of welfare and recreational activities, in its belief that recreational activities enhance productivity and also as recognized obligation to the society for better social environment. Some of the recreational activities include, but not limited to, sports and cultural events, celebration of cultural diversity, beliefs and various events to show case home-grown talent within the company.

At the tea gardens, most of the workers are covered under Atal Amrit Abhiyan and also insured under Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojna and Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojna.

To reduce the household air pollution and promote the health of the families, the management distributed low smoke chulah and LPG connections to the workers in some of the Tea Estates. Apart from these, the estate distributed mosquito nets, water filters to the workers.

The Aerospace and Defence division values every staff member and has adopted revolutionary policies in manufacturing. For the first time in India, in manufacturing sector, the company has implemented a single shift, 5-day week, with optional flexible timings on need.
