Dear members,

It is a great pleasure that the Engineers’ Welfare Forum, WBPDCL is going through its 3rd Annual General Meeting of Central Executive Committee on this day after passing its journey since 25th Oct. 2010. We are very much proud that after getting its recognition in WBPDCL on & from the 3rd day of March, 2012 EWF has got ISO:9001-2008 on & from the 8th day of July, 2014 with the conglomerate challenging efforts of our hard working members. Without the joint effort, EWF could not think about Ewf-social, Ewf-travel, Ewf-health, Ewf-housing, Ewf-eatery and Ewf-technical. It is our socio-economical responsibility to enlighten the dream of technical education and penetration of motivation among the present engineering students who will be the asset for the industries in the coming generation and we have to share our technical knowledge among them. This can definitely be achieved by our members.

Lastly I am expressing my heartiest thanks to all the members of this FORUM and requesting them to enrich their devotion to make more success of the FORUM in day by day for the development of the power scenario of West Bengal.

Thanks to all.

Good Morning and Welcome to everybody and congratulation for achieving ISO 9001:2008 Certificate this year. I also congratulate EWF, BTPS Zone for organizing this AGM.

Thank you for joining me today for the 4 th Annual General Meeting. I understand we have a handsome gathering this year, members reached here from distant zones in spite of their holiday household jobs. That is wonderful, so thank you for joining us.

We have crossed almost three and half years from the date we actually began our journey with a noble intention, attitude and mindset and that was a completely different from the ways we used to and at that time we were to accept all those due to x-factor, we understand all. We were contemplating at the beginning of our Forum that how will be the reaction on the part of our authority, our valued members about our different kind of activities those were not seen before. But our sincerity, honesty, firm conviction enabled us to win faith over all sector of the people. Gradually everybody understands our positiveness. We are now doing many different kinds of activity. Last year also we had done a lot of welfare activity through out the year and the details you will have during the presentation of general secretary, EWF. I am not going details into it.

We have a strong dynamic website for our members to communicate among themselves, receiving news of many activities of the forum and much more. We are very conscious about the welfare of our members and for that we got many demands met from the authority after several meetings. But at the same time, we also more conscious about the improvement of our organization in which we belong to. And for that we win faith on us from the different corner of our society. Organizational profit is our survival kit. I know our members are also conscious on this point.

Most of us hope to get through our working lives without any major problems or difficulties. But sometimes problems do come up. We have solved many problems of our valued members with our sincere effort.

The scope of the Forum has broadened considerably in this relatively short time. This reflects the expanding uses to which special capacity is now able to be deployed, the increasing diversity of organizations and skills now using this capacity, and the corresponding expansion in demands of Forum members as we are now an international certificate holder. Our everything, those are recordable are to be recorded in a standard way and the process will be communicated to every zones very soon.

Those who have steered the Forum along this dynamic road have done so in a responsive and measured way, ensuring appropriate adjustment and continuity in Forum affairs. Many people have contributed to this outcome, far too many people to mention here by name.

Our members are dedicated with this platform and created different environment in achieving goals. I hope more members to come forward with their news and views to strengthen us more. I can assure you that we are moving in the right direction and that will be followed by many others in the days to come.

Thank you everybody for showing your patients.

Thanks.

Post retirement medical benefit. (It is in process.)
For one post, three candidates will be called in the interview for promotion.(i.e the ratio will be 1:3) [Already implemented by our authority]
To stop huge bypass of Engineers in the interview for promotion. [We have observed a shadow of this in recent DGM promotional case] .
To increase the number of DGM & GM posts:[ Already it has been implemented by our authority].

VENUE : ORC ANNEXE BUILDING, KTPS,DATE : 04.08.2013

Dear members,

It is a great pleasure that the Engineers’ Welfare Forum, WBPDCL is going through its 3rd Annual General Meeting of Central Executive Committee on this day. The thinking of formation of a new FORUM to run in parallel with the ASSOTIATION was started in the middle of 2010 with the help of a very few Engineers. Ultimately it got registration on 25th Oct. 2010 under the W. B. Societies Registration Act 1961 as well as got recognition from WBPDCL authority in writing on 03-03-2012 and was an only registered and recognised unit from Engineers’ of WBPDCL. Since then this FORUM is doing so many activities for the interest to improve power scenario of West Bengal with the conglomerate activities of the members of the forum. Today the FORUM has launched its existing website www.wbpdclewf.org.in. in the modified and developed form.

Lastly I am expressing my heartiest thanks to all members of this FORUM and requesting them to enrich their devotion to make more success of the FORUM in day by day for the development of the power scenario of West Bengal.

Thanks to all.

Venue: ORC Annexe Building, KTPS,Date: 04.08.2013

Dear Members,

We have already crossed more than two & half year journey since we began this Forum into operation from 25th October, 2010. It has been declared officially through newspaper and our website notifications on 14.03.11. During this period we extended our best effort to eradicate obstacles from various corner of this organization. Still we maintain our transparency, addressing some critical troubles but we had to concentrate ourselves for achieving recognition and which took much time from us for welfare for our members and our organization. Finally we got it on 03.03.2012.

I congratulate all for their unrelenting support during these hard phase of time. During this period we had organized some important seminars in different locations for the benefit of our engineers and the organization as a whole that we needed most. We had sent our engineers to BHEL-JHANSI (for transformer training), NTPC Noida etc which were a unique idea for the technical development of our organization and no other association had done this type of job before. In addition, we had done many in- house training programmes during this period.

We had got our demands materilised on some issues like incentive, O&M allowance, electricity allowance, conveyance allowance, ex-gratia etc and some were not. Some failures reaffirm our commitment for the future task ahead of us. We want to see this Forum on a different way as we were used to and for that we want more support & motivation of our engineers.I request all of you to provide us good suggestions for the betterment of our company through the Engineers’ Blog in our website www.wbpdclewf.org.in .

We notice that we do not have any standard purchase policy for our organisation and for that there are different purchase procedures in different units. We want to introduce standard purchase policy for our company.

We also want that our organisation should start independent Vigilance Cell as prevailing in other organisation.

Our organisation does not have any transfer policy. We insist on that.

We wish to introduce new promotional policy under CPS as per present industrial status like NTPC, BHEL etc. We want promotion in every 4 years interval like NTPC, BHEL,POWER GRID etc. For this we have already submitted a report to our Hon’ble MIC (Power) and C&MD. Our Hon’ble MIC (Power) has appreciated the points which we have raised regarding this issue. He has given assurance that he will look into the matter carefully.

Good news that we are going to organize a national seminar like previous year on “Optimization of Land & Environment Protection for Thermal Power Project”. It is really a very burning issue now a days. We want active participation & positive motivation of all our members to make it a grand success.

Good works are always obstructed by some means and we are not beyond that. We keep watching that somewhere authority is taking intentional biased decision to restrict us from performing good work and we will sort it out over the time.

Actually we are habituated in this organization with the timid culture of, “don’t do this, never say this” even if it is right, but everybody has the right to do good for this organization because he is a part of this organization. So members, please charge up your-selves with indomitable interest and internal strength of your body and mind for welfare of our members as well as for the organization. It is also unfortunate on our part that zones are to come forward in a more positive way, in a pro active manner. Here no one is teacher. We are the learner and we are the teacher. Unless we change our attitude, we can not sustain our progresss for prolong time.

We have with us a number of Distinguished Honorary Members from different organizations. From them we are getting suggestions in different technical & administrative matters which are enriching the knowledge of our members.

STPS is a remotely located plant where no hygienic food is available. To provide healthy & hygienic food to our members we have recently introduced EWF-EATERYwhich is an unique concept of EWF. No other association thinks about this type of service for his members. In future we will introduce EWF-HEALTHin different plant locations to create consciousness on health of the members through YOGA.

Communication among the members is very important for exchange of ideas and I hope effective communication and fruitful interaction throughout the year among the members of the different zones should develop in the coming days. We are the architects of our website for good reasons of interconnectivity among engineers in different locations. Renovation of our website has been completed recently and today we will dedicate this website for our members and well-wishers. You can update yourselves with different types of recent development in the field of power sector through this website. We will upload one technical question in every week in our website, you have to answer this and the person who will give first right answer, will be awarded by a small & interesting gift. So dear colleagues, please visit our website regularly, exchange your views through Engineers’ Blog, give answer to the technical questions and win prizes.

I once again thank you all and hope that more and more engineers will take membership of this Forum to participate different types of welfare activities in the near future.
