Migrant workers, mostly consisting of masons, carpenters, laborers, barbers, and embroiderers, are an integral part of the local economy of Jammu and Kashmir. Hence, catering to their needs and providing them with supplies was the most essential step which had to be accomplished. I would especially like to express my gratitude towards NASSCOM Foundation and Infosys Foundation, including Padma Shri Dr Sudha Murthy for their unwavering support.”Shri Ashok Pamidi, CEO, NASSCOM Foundation said, “We are delighted and honored to partner with Indian Army & Major Pradeep Arya, for the distribution of relief material in hard to reach areas of Kashmir.
