The Hindol Welfare Association (HWA), Bhubaneswar activity report for 2012-13 are here under.
As per programme we have carried out following activities.
1.  Health Care:-
a) The Association have conducted Three health Camps during 2012-13. First one at village Katimili on 11.11.2012, the 2nd one at village Ganjara on 06.01.2013 and the 3rd one at Village Khaliborei on 10.02.2013 of Hindol Sub-Division. In the health camps free medical check up of 900,500 and 600 ailing people respectively have been done by a group of experienced specialist doctors along with distribution of medicines free of cost by experienced pharmacists. In these health camps malaria test were also carried out free of cost.
b) The Association members have met the Minister & the Secretary Health department to fillup the vacant post of specialist doctors ( vig- Medicine & Surgery) laying vacant since 3 years & S.D.M.O post since 11/2 years at Sub-Divisional Hospital Hindol depriving the common poor people of the locality from availing proper health care. Finally only the surgery post was filled up leaving behind the much needed post of Medicine Specialist & post of S.D.M.O. Now the Association is constantly persuing the matter with the department to fill up the said posts.
2. Education:-

3. Irrigation & water resource:-
Our Hindol people are neglected so far the irrigation & water management is concerned. The integrated Sapua-Badajora project was taken up by Govt. during early nineties. But to our surprise Sapua project was only constructed leaving behind Badajora project for which most of the aycut area are not being irrigated & the farmers are suffering with irreparable loss every year. Our Association have called for information under R.T.I from the department regarding delition of Badajora project. All the informations available with the department have already received. Now we are preparing to discuss the mater at Minister/ Secretary level. We are also meeting Chief Engineer, water resource time & again to get adequate fund for repair of exing canals and as a result all most all canals are repaired where water for irrigation are provided.
4. Reliability of Electricity Supply to Hindol Area:-
Due to constant efforts by the Association our dream project i.e. 132/33 K.V. Grid Sub-Station at Khajuriakata with feeding line is in progress to cater reliability of power supply to Hindol area. Now the work is in full swing and is likely to be completed over a year.
5. Forest:-
a) For conservation & aforestation of forest we have formed one VSS Mahasangha taking together 48 VSS of Hindol Range. With the help of VSS Mahasangha we are interacting with local forest officials. As a result the theft of forest has reduce to a great extent. We are taking the saplings from forest nursery and distributing to local people and at different schools for plantation to bring about ecological balance in the region as well as to combat Global warming.
b) Plantation:- During Vanamahochhab-2012 (i.e from 01.07.2012 to 07.07.2012) we have planted 1200 saplings at villages Panchapada & Nuabaga of Hindol Sub-Division of Dhenkanal District.

We had written to all offices at Hindol Sub-Division & Dhenkanal District level to dispose the public grievances on first come first serve basis.

Due to this said programmes are now getting streamlined at the Block office & our common poor peoples are being benefitted. Similarly we have asked informations from Tahasil office on Mutation cases, Demarcation of land & Black granite quarries. We could not get due justice from R.T.I Commissioner for which it could not be streamlined for the benefit of common & poor people of Hindol. However we are persuing the matter to get it streamlined so that the common people will get their justice on redressal of their grievances at Tahasil level.
