Nageen Group is dedicated to the cause of spreading happiness, equality, sustainable development of Meerut and its people. We have made efforts to make it a smart city with opportunities and futuristic outlook. We have been bridging the gaps between have and have not. Inspired by the ideals of our founder Chairman Late Sh. Nageen Chand Jain, we are creating a better tomorrow for our people. We have taken into our stride the objective of social responsibility to bring to reality the hopes of this wonderful land, and change the global perception about us. Some of the highlights of our arduous efforts and ongoing projects are as follow for your reference:
Neki Ki Diwar
Social institutions like schools, hospitals, restaurants, NGO’s, etc have been weaved into a cohesive bond of brotherhood. The message of sharing our resources with our brothers with lesser means of survival has been spread by the concept of “Neki Ki Diwar.” Hundreds of institutions in and around have learnt the concept of collecting articles of daily use no more useful to us to be shared with masses who have greater need for them. This mission has spread like jungle fire and people from all walks of life have joined hands to give their old clothes, books, toys, food for anyone who needs it more. Flex with a simple message of sharing and caring have been installed outside walls of institutions to collect from anyone so that it can be shared with the needy ones. People of Meerut have learnt this simple concept with ease as it makes them happy to see that what was useless for them can actually bring smiles and comfort to someone who is not equally privileged. We believe in spreading happiness by bringing people close to one another.

This Yatra has become synonymous with Dandi Yatra started by our Bapu, as it starts from one point with handful of people and becomes a ocean of men, women and children, as it progresses towards its destination. People sing bhajans, walk hand in hand and create a new world by poets singing praises of our martyrs and songs of freedom struggle. This walk strengthens our bonding and threads of our culture Its being perceived as a festival celebrated in the memory of our martyrs who laid down their lives so that we could live with freedom and peace.
