New Delhi:  In a momentous event held today, Sheetal Devi, the World No. 1 para-archer, was welcomed into the IndianOil family, making her the first para-athlete to join IndianOil sports fraternity. Mr. Shrikant Madhav Vaidya, Chairman, IndianOil, presented the tenure-based engagement letter to Ms. Sheetal Devi, celebrating her remarkable journey in the world of para-archery. 

Padma Shri Dr. Uma Tuli, Founder, Amar Jyoti Charitable Trust, and functional directors of IndianOil, Mr. V. Satish Kumar, Director (Marketing), Ms. Sukla Mistry, Director (Refineries), Mr. Sujoy Choudhury, Director (P&BD) holding additional charge of Director (R&D and HR) and Mr. N. Senthil Kumar, Director (Pipelines) and IOCians were also present on the occasion. 

Welcoming Sheetal to IndianOil, Mr. Vaidya said, “IndianOil has a longstanding commitment of supporting the sporting talent in the country and nurturing world class champions. Ms. Sheetal Devi will be a shining star in IndianOil’s Sporting Galaxy”. Admiring Sheetal’s courage and resilience and her journey as the world’s first armless archer in the world, Mr Vaidya offered the Company’s steadfast support to her in realising her dreams and win more laurels for the nation.
