The Indian Oil Corporation (IOC,) on the 8th of March, the International Women’s Day, gave employment to nine Indian hockey players.

According to sources, the appointment of the players was under new Sport’s Policy, launched by Indian Oil to promote women empowerment and sports. Notably players named Suman Devi Thoudam, Rajwinder Kaur, Rashmita Minz, Sharmila Devi, Ishika Chaudhary, Bichu Devi Kharibam, Deepika, Baljeet Kaur, and Akshata Dhekale from different states are employed, said official statement.

The Indian Oil Corporation released an official statement regarding the same, which read, “Nine players of the Indian hockey team have become part of the Indian Oil family as Indian Oil inducted them onto its rolls under its new sports policy which promotes women’s hockey.”

They were handed over their appointment letters by IOC Chairman S M Vaidya in the presence of functional directors of the company and Federation of International Hockey (FIH) President Narinder Dhruv Batra, who is also the President of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA).

Speaking at the induction ceremony, Vaidya said: “We recognise how sports is the most effective vehicle of ushering in enduring social change. IOC’s commitment to gender equality had to manifest in our sporting outreaches.”

Talking about the firm’s revamped sports policy, he said, “Last year we released our revised sports policy, included the provision for recruiting women hockey players for the first time. I am glad that within a few months of the policy’s roll-out, we are witnessing the conversion of intent into action.”

Addressing the gathering, IOC Director (Human Resources) Ranjan Kumar Mohapatra said, “Sports is not just a CSR obligation for IOC but is part of our philosophy of ‘Pehle Indian Phir Oil’. We recognise the power sports have to unify a nation and bring people together in resonance with the national spirit.”
