First one at villages Galpada & Beruanpal of Hindol Block on 10.11.2013, the 2nd one at village Nimidha of Odapada Block on 24.11.2013; the 3rd one at village Karanda of Hindol Block on 22.12.2013; the fourth one at village Indipur of Odapada Block on 12.01.2014; and the fifth one at village Dinabandhupur of Odapada Block on 09.02.2014; In the health camps free medical checkup of 652, 568, 720, 650 and 460 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 & Secretary Health & Family Welfare Department to fill up the vacant posts of Doctors, Specialist Doctors laying vacant since years together at Sub-Divisional Hospital Hindol & at Khajuriakata CHC depriving the common poor people of the locality from availing proper health care. Finally a doctor cum specialist post of Khajurialkata CHC was filled up leaving behind the much needed post of medicine specialist. Now the Association is persuing the matter with the department to fill up the vacant posts of doctors at different hospitals of Hindol constituency.
2. Education:
We met the parents of dropout students of Galpada Beruanpal High School, Beruanpal; Panchyat High School, Madhapur; Nabapalli High School, Chhotapada & Panchyat High School Sanamunda. We convinced 18 parents those who agreed to send their children to the respective schools. Now it is seen that they are sending their children to the respective schools regularly.
3. Irrigation & Water resource:
a) 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.
b) The association members have met the OLIC authorities at different level & impressed on them to revive all defunct projects of Hindol & Odapada Block.
4. Reliability of Electricity Supply to Hindol Area:
Due to constant efforts by the Association our dream project i.e 132/33KV Gird Sub-station at Khajuriakata with feeding line is in progress to cater reliability of power supply to Hindol area. The work is in full swing & is expected to be completed during 2014-15 financial year.
5. Forest:

a) For conservation & aforestation of forest we have formed one VSS (Vana Surakshya Samiti) 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 reduced to great extent. We are taking the saplings from forest horticulture & private nurseries & 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 – 2013 (i.e from 1.7.2013 lto 7.7.2013) we have planted 1400 saplings at village Panchapada, Barsinga & Pada of Hindol Sub-Division of Dhenkanal District.
