The Rig was selected during the recent JRM (Joint Review Meeting) chaired by the Chairman & Managing Director of ONGC from amongst 38 offshore jack-up drilling rigs working in the Mumbai offshore area.
Dr Mehrotra has also recently announced that he is embarking on a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative with the Indian Government to undertake the cleansing of the holy river Ganges and landscaping of its banks on a stretch passing through his home city of Kanpur.
