In addition, he donated 14 mobile health vans and 30 eco-friendly scooters to Seva Bharti, Rajasthan VanvasiKalyanParishad and several other non-governmental organizations and other social workers.
“I am particularly passionate about two issues: blood donation and driving safety. I am pleased that the goal of roughly 4000-5000 units of blood has been achieved. The helmets given to the contributors will serve to emphasise the need of driving safely. Utkarsh is considering ways to give back to society in addition to its responsibility for training and moulding future thinking leaders. This is a modest effort to give back to the society and disseminate a social message,” said Dr.Gehlot.
