The Minister of State of Petroleum and Natural Gas Dharmendra Pradhan on Thursday felicitated the 9-member ONGC Everest team for their successful summit to the peak.
Seven out nine members had completed the final summit in May this year, ONGC said in a statement.
“This will go a long way in promoting adventure activities in Corporates,” the Minister said.
Pradhan also lauded the ONGC team for linking the expedition with Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.
The team had also helped Nepal Government in removing tons of solid wastes littered on the Everest peak and brought back that garbage from the peak.
