It is very essential to have a rich quality life in office as well as outside. Quality of life means more happiness at home and at work.

Balco has a township which is very close to the plant. However, it is a beautiful world in its own. The township is set in the middle of an evergreen forest which makes the weather very conducive to comfortable living. The colony has long walking tracks and is set near a dense forest which makes a wonderful location for a long walk. Mornings and evenings are very pleasant. It’s an awesome scene to see the rising sun. In large cities we never get the time to see this spectacular scene. The mornings are very pleasant and are a blessing for walkers. The ‘state of the art’ stadium also hums to life with morning joggers. It has spacious houses with small gardens attached for those willing to indulge in maintaining greenery around their homes.

The township has a few clubs. Out of these, the Expert Club is equipped with a gymnasium, a swimming club, badminton and tennis courts, table tennis, caroms and billiards. For those who want to chill and unwind after a long tiring day, there is a cosy bar. On weekends, housie is organised for everybody. The fun is then followed by dinner.

An ultra-modern hostel for Graduate Engineers (boys and girls) makes them feel at home.
