Shri Mahadeo Shahra Sukrat Trust is a Public Charitable Trust duly registered by Registrar of Public Charitable Trust, Indore, and was formed in 1976 specially to initiate the corporate social responsibility initiatives of Ruchi.

The Trust initially undertook relief work for the underprivileged in the areas of health, education and other sectors at Manglia, Indore, Madhya Pradesh where the largest and first production plant of Ruchi is situated. The Trust runs a hospital throughout the year for the underprivileged and needy and provides free medical treatment, and free medicines. The hospital is upgraded every year with new and improved medical treatment and the facilities are extended by a team of doctors specialized in various fields of medicine.

The Trust also organizes a one day Medical Camp every year on the November 25 which is the death anniversary of Late Smt. Kausalya Devi Shahra. The one day camp is conducted by a team of specialists and medicines are distributed free of cost.


When Ruchi decided to put up its edible oil refinery plant at Patalganga in Raigad district in Maharashtra in the year 2003, it also decided to take on the corporate social responsibility since the day the construction began at site. Our plant is situated in remote and rural surrounded by a large tribal population. SHAHRA (Self-Help, Assistance, Hope, and Renewed-Action) Learning Centre at Patalganga was established to help less privileged students in their all- round development through various activities and cultural programs. A computer education initiative at Dr Parnekar School has benefited several students.

An Ashram is being run at Omkareshwar in Madhya Pradesh where Shri Mahadeo Shahra Sukrat Trust provides facilities for saints from distant places.

The Trust is also involved in other social activities like Spiritual Functions, Yoga Camps, Alternative Therapies Camps and other Cultural Programs. The Trust is actively involved in helping the needy by way of donations, medical aid and educational grants.

Over the years, Shri Mahadeo Shahra Sukrat Trust has partnered with a number of NGOs and institutions. The main ones are:

Aararmbh, an NGO specializing in providing rehabilitation to street children. The trust provides the basics to them such as pulses, grains and oil for consumption.

Astha, an old age home; the trust contributes in the form of providing books and reading materials, food and has helped built recreational facilities for the home.


The social initiative programs will be carried out in a sustainable manner through village participation. It is our policy to work with reputed NGOs and who are like minded and we will invite them to partner with us.
