From the Desk of KVR

Dear ECC-ites,
The first board meeting of the
Operating Companies (OCs) in ECC
was held in July 2008. This marked
the beginning of a positive step forward
in realizing the benefits of the
organizational restructuring towards
achieving accelerated growth and better
value creation in each OC.
Successful organizations focus on the
triple-bottom line Environment,
Society and Economy for long term
sustainability of the business. I am
happy to say that we have initiated the
process towards this by preparing the Companys first Corporate Sustainability Report
for the year 2007-08. As part of this, ECC Division has prepared a detailed report on
Corporate Sustainability covering most of the 79 indicators as per GRI-G3 (Global
Reporting Initiative 3rd Generation) guidelines. We have prepared an action plan for
the year 2008-09 and are implementing the same. Some of the key points include
focus on Green buildings, greening supply chain, measuring and monitoring water
and electricity consumption.
L&T has always been a socially conscious organization striving to reach the society at
large including the underprivileged. In keeping up with this tradition, there was an
overwhelming response from L&T-ites in providing relief towards the flood-affected
in Bihar. I thank all those who have contributed to this in various forms showing our
empathy with the needy and extending our vision beyond business concerns.
With our enhanced focus on both the domestic and the international market I am
happy that our Company has moved up in the rankings of global contractors. In a
survey of Top 225 Global Contractors carried out by the reputed international
construction magazine Engineering New-Record, L&T, with an estimated revenue of
US $ 5.42 billion, has been ranked 40th, a steady improvement from 47th in 2007
and 54th in 2006. Today, L&T is ranked alongside the global giants like Ferrovial,
Daewoo E&C, Samsung C&T and Hyundai Engineering. I compliment all ECC-ites
on their contribution to this achievement. Initiatives on operational efficiency and
optimal projects focussing on large and mega projects on EPC and turkney basis are
the vital factors for positioning the Company among the top global E&C companies.
I am happy to note that Technology Centre (TCII) of L&T Infotech at Chennai has
won the prestigious Ultratech Award for Outstanding Concrete Structure of Tamil
Nadu; LPG Storage Project at SALPG Vizag, the Sarvamangala Award for excellence
in construction; Bakreswar Thermal Power Plant Project, the Golden Peacock Safety
Award and the Henning Holck-Larsen (HHL) Centre at ECC HQ, the Public Relations
Society of Indias Golden Jubilee Award in recognition of the unique PR Initiative.
Congratulations to the winners for putting in their best efforts and bringing laurels
to the organizations. These acknowledgements are a testimony to L&Ts global
benchmarks. I take this opportunity to reiterate that we need to make continued
efforts in setting industry benchmarks while meeting future challenges.
With warm regards and best wishes for the festive season ahead.

China Procurement - A Cost-effective Sourcing Venture

In early 2005, L&T-ECC ventured into an Operational
Excellence program called Project Kohinoor, with a strong focus
of improving our bottom line. Apart from Project Management
initiatives, sub-contractor management and working capital
management, procurement transformation was a key aspect
which was looked into.
A fact which came to light was that our line of business faces
stiff pressures for material on multiple fronts such as technology/
product features, cost and delivery schedule. Project Kohinoor
proposed expansion of the existing supply base by venturing
into other low cost countries. After due diligence on possible
destinations across Asia and Eastern Europe, we narrowed down
on China.
With immediate successes on steel, which also proved critical Mr. M. Chandrasekaran (second from left) with the China

Against a steep target for sourcing, China procurement office
felt its first blow with the volatility in the steel prices. At this potentially difficult time, Mr. T.S. Sundaresan (VP & Head
- Materials Management and Vendor Development) and the Senior Management stood by us and gave us key insights
on the way forward. Encouraged and motivated, the China procurement office devised a mitigation strategy to expand
the supplier base for other categories, critical to each OC.
The office, housed under the representative office of L&T Shanghai, is headed by Mr. K. Veeramani and supported by
Mr. Sandeep Kumar and Mr. Sameer Momaya. With the help of Accenture Business Consulting, who have partnered with
us from the days of Kohinoor, we have formally completed a successful year.

View through a keyhole from India

China is viewed as an economic and global powerhouse; however there is an apprehension in India of Chinese products
being inferior. The root
cause of this fear lies in
the innumerable Chinese
goods, such as small toys
and hi-tech equipment,
domestic markets. To
start with, this scenario
has put the China
procurement initiative
on the back step. Add
to this concerns of
longer lead time and
serviceability, which
prove to be serious

and the pace of the
construction business,

July - September 2008

In the past one year, China Procurement Office, under

the guidance of HQ Materials has risen up to this
task of overcoming the aforementioned challenges
and seizing available opportunities. The office has
met several stakeholders, OC Leaders, clients, external
architects, EDRC architects/coordinators, project
execution teams in its efforts to instill confidence in
the robust sourcing process established, to identify
top Tier-I/Tier-II suppliers, capable of delivering
material meeting our specifications at the most
competitive price within stiff time deadlines. Project
teams, which have visited China to evaluate our
suppliers, have become our champions in this effort
and are committed to using this office for any future
Our business has grown multifold and order booking
Mr. K.V. Rangaswami making a point while reviewing China sourcing
has reached its peak in the past year. Our domestic
progress with Mr. T.S. Sundaresan and Mr. M. Chandrasekaran
suppliers also have grown in a similar, if not faster
pace. This scenario poses a unique opportunity for us to
expand our supply base, introduce competition in the supply G In April 2008, CPO started circulating periodic monthly

mailers, in order to apprise stake-holders of key monthly
advanced technology. China is only one of the several low
highlights and newly established ready-to-procure
cost countries, which serves as a potential sourcing
In May 2008, S. Rajvel, VP & Head (EI&C) and team
visited China to explore the possibility of sourcing EHV
transformers and cables. Stake-holders are now involved
in discussions with the Chinese suppliers for strategic
pre-bid tie-ups, a move that is in line with the vision
and business acumen that has always been ECCs
trademark in the construction industry

Key Highlights & Achievements of the

China Procurement Office


China Procurement Office came into existence in the

first week of October 2007, and comprises a 5-member
team here in HQ, and a 4-member team in Shanghai
In order to effectively open channels of demand
aggregation with our Business Units, CPO scheduled a
Joint Steering Committee Meeting on October 5th with
senior management, who nominated various points of
contact from their BUs to liaison with CPO office
One of the earliest and most fruitful visits to
selected suppliers was conducted in November 2007,
by K.V. Srikanth, Manager (Formwork) and
Mr. N. Srinivasan, Executive (Formworks).
China Procurement Office realized its first order (with
complete end-to-end responsibility) in the furniture
requirement for Singroli site. Although the order value
was only INR 13 Lakhs, the order consisted of a variety
of furniture, ranging from sofa sets to beds to tables.
In February 2008, V. Sukumar Hebbar, Chief ArchitectEDRC (B&F) and Mr. S. Natrajan, Head (CSTI),
visited China to explore the possibility of sourcing
finishing items for CSTI projects. The visit was
successful as orders for furniture, worth approximately
INR 32 Lakhs materialized from the visit.
Following the success of such previous visits, CPO
organized for the visit of Mr. K. Nagendra, RPM
(B&F), in April 2008, which resulted in orders placed
for tiles and sanitary and CP fittings, with the intention
of setting up a mock-up at South City, Bangalore.

In June 2008, Mr. S. Virapan, Chief Engineering

Manager (BUCC), visited China in order to conduct
techno-commercial discussions with the short-listed
sanitary and CP fitting suppliers. As a result, several
samples were selected, and CPO is in the process of
obtaining approval for these samples, for usage in the
TC-III project.
In the period from June to July 2008, CPO was involved
in conducting visits to project sites in various regions
(BLRO, CNRO, KKRO, DLRO etc.) to understand
the project teams requirements, and cater to them
In August 2008, CPO conducted an EDRC workshop,
which was attended by key stakeholders from EDRC
and B&F senior management. Though the fool-proof
process adopted by the CPO in the selection of vendors
was explained at length, as an abundant measure of
precaution, it was decided by the stakeholders that the
materials from China should be tried out in one of
the projects (TC-III, Chennai).
In August and September 2008, CPO made
presentations to senior management from DPBU and
E&GO. Both were very well received, and CPO has
received excellent traction from project teams.
In September 2008, CPO successfully unveiled the
China Product Display Facility, which was inaugurated

July - September 2008

by Mr. K.V. Rangaswami. Since then the facility has

been visited by several stake-holders, who have evinced
interest in finishing items from China.

Concluding Note
The formation of Operating Companies introduces a new
era of accountability, responsibility and professionalism.
Along with this have arisen the pressures of improving the
profitability of each business unit. Direct Material cost still
remains the single largest constituent of the total project

cost. As a specialized shared service division, the Central

Procurement Department aims to help reduce/control this
Direct Material cost without compromising on the quality
and delivery schedules required by the project teams.
This endeavour in global sourcing will not only help us
withstand any supply-side shocks but also improve the brand
equity of Larsen & Toubro on the whole, worldwide.

Challenges in Sourcing from the Land of the Orient

When we arrived here in Shanghai, there were lot of
doubts and presumptions related to quality of material.
However, we were soon proved wrong and were amazed
to see the manufacturing facilities and scale of
production which incorporate state-of-the-art technology,
resulting in a complete change of mindset towards
materials from China.
China has also been partly responsible for this view
with its closed door economy, until the recent Olympics.
The way the event was conducted was an eye opener to
the outside world and now China is looked upon in a
different light. There is a rush of companies from the
rest of the world setting up offices in China and sourcing
from here. Concerns regarding quality were quashed by
the superlative display of technology, execution capability
and hospitality witnessed during the Olympics.
Ours has been a journey full of challenges from The China Procurement Office Team: (from left to right)
understanding the local language to aligning ourselves Mr. Sandeep Kumar, Mr. K. Veeramani and Mr. Sameer
with the local culture. Our work involves continuous
business travel across the length and breadth of China to identify & locate the potential sources/suppliers for
various building materials, construction equipments etc. to cater to the project requirements in India, Middle East
and Sri Lanka.
Over the past 2 years, we have converted many big enquiries/requirements into POs, for e.g. sourcing of
31600MT of HRC for Bisalpur water supply project from Shangang Steel. For construction equipments such as
Crawler Cranes, which were earlier sourced through an Indian agent from a single supplier, we identified more
suppliers and created stiff competition among Chinese manufacturers, resulting in great cost efficiencies for the
Another challenge we faced was the lack of brand equity for L&T with local suppliers as not many suppliers knew
of this Indian construction giant. Though we are the No. 1 Engineering and Construction company in India,
China is host to a number of construction companies which are much bigger than us. However, through frequent
interaction with suppliers and dedicated marketing efforts, we have built a good rapport with the suppliers and
generated confidence, a necessary ingredient to build long lasting business relationships.
Another difficulty we continuously face is the language barrier, as the majority of people in China still do not
speak English. To overcome this, we take Chinese language lessons, which help us build cordial relations with
suppliers and a stronger case during negotiations, as well.
Our office has been guided and supported by Mr. J.J. Shrikande, Vice President & Country Head China, who
helped us understand the above challenges. We also understand the nature of the market a sellers market in
which companies from developed countries who take quicker decisions profit from a multitude of benefits such
as superior quality, faster delivery and lower cost.
We look forward to better days ahead and helping our organization reap the complete potential of this market.

Mr. T. Kumaresan (TK), Project

Manager, involved in this project right
from the tendering stage, says For the
first time ECC is executing the steel
and iron making units concurrently for
an integrated steel plant. From an initial
value of Rs. 140 Crore, the scope has
increased to Rs. 2000 Crore, comprising complete civil,
structural, piping, equipment erection with electrical and
instrumentation works.
The increase in scope, he says, is due to the faith reposed
by the client in L&Ts capabilities. The site has achieved
several milestones and set benchmarks in execution. Citing
some of the major achievements, he says, We have achieved
35 million safe man-hours which is the highest in ECC,
completed 3.5 lakh cu.m. of concrete in 18 months and
40,000t of fabrication and almost 32,000t of erection in
17 months. We have fabricated, assembled and erected the
single largest crane girder for a span of 43m and 181t at
site. Apart from these, the scope also involves execution of
many critical civil structures whose spans range from
El(-)30 m deep to El(+)56 m high.
Among the various challenges, he cites labour management
as one of the most critical aspects. With a requirement of
close to 10,000 workmen, mobilizing and retaining skilled

workmen was a tough proposition. As the project is in a

remote locale, providing necessary accommodation and
facilities for the workmen was vital. Close to 6500
workmen stay in the colony within the site premises.
Filtered water, medical facilities with a full time doctor
and para medical staff have been arranged for the workmen
in the colony. Since the area is malaria prone, precautionary
measures have been adopted and stringently monitored.
TK states that more than 70% of the civil labourers are
locals which has helped in maintaining industrial harmony.
TK attributes the success of the project to team work,
ably supported by Mr. T. Azhaguvel, Regional Manager,
Kolkata and Mr. R.C. Pandey, then Sector Projects Manager,
who were instrumental in mobilizing resources and
supporting all other endeavours. TK states that safety is
another factor which has contributed to the achievements.
Frequent safety orientation programmes, e-learning
packages, and need based training ensured that safety issues
are communicated and awareness created among workmen.
TK says, We started with an item rate contract but
through impressive performance have convinced the client
to award EPC contracts and today we are executing Rs.
2000 Crore plus quantum of works. With more orders on
the anvil, we are seeing this place as another Steel City in
the making

July - September 2008


Mr. Tinanjan Mitra (TM), Sr.

Construction Manager (SMSII,
HSM, Coke Oven, Sinter plant,
Stacker-reclaimer and Conveyor
packages), says, Our hands are full.
We are currently executing the
structural, civil and equipment erection
works for the steel melting plant, hot
strip mill, water complex and coke
oven. The scope also includes bulk material handling which
involves installation of 3 stacker reclaimers, fabrication and
erection of conveyor for 3 km, and execution of two sinter
plants under EPC contract.
TM states that works commenced from January 2007 and
around 3.5 lakh cu.m. of concreting has been completed
against the total scope of 4.6 lakh cu.m. The structural
scope which was initially 40,000t has increased to 47,600t.
41,000t of fabrication and 33,000t of erection have been
completed. The equipment scope which comprises 30,000t
has just begun with around 4,800t being executed. Out of
the total piping scope of 3000t, 1300t of fabrication and
900t of erection has been executed. The contractual
completion date is March 2009. The Sinter plant is
scheduled for completion in June 2010. TM states that the
works are progressing in the right direction for completion
within the stipulated period.
With regard to the challenges, TM says, it was a unique
situation as there was no boundary wall and posed several
hardships during the initial phase of the project. The project
has a huge requirement of skilled workmen with the
carpenters alone being close to 1000 during peak activity.
TM says that since there is no accommodation available
nearby the vicinity of site, a labour colony was constructed
within the site premises. At present, close to 6500 workmen
are accommodated in the labour colony which is being
further expanded.
Having met the clients expectation by completing the
various works as per schedule, the project is poised for
securing additional packages in the near future. TM says,
prior experience of SMS/HSM at TISCO and knowledge
of the work complexities were instrumental for the
successful execution of this project. Due to the rocky
nature of the soil, civil jobs at times had to be done at
(-)30m. The work area being limited, one had to confine
within the given space even to execute the huge fabrication.
The site has achieved a peak output of 6200t of fabrication,
30,000 cu.m. of concreting and 4000t of erection in a
TM highlights that safety and quality standards adhered to
at site are the highest considering the huge quantity of
fabrication and erection of critical structural columns. The
site recently achieved 35 million safe man hours and
received a safety appreciation certificate from the client.
TM attributes the success of the project to team effort and
says that it is another integrated steel plant in the making.


Mr. R. Ganesh (RG), Construction

Manager, Blast Furnace, says the
plant will be the first integrated steel
plant in the state of Orissa. The blast
furnace with a capacity of 2.5 Million
Tonnes per Annum (MTPA) is similar
to the one executed in TISCO. The
job has been secured by a consortium
with the total value being around Rs. 1200 crore out of
which ECCs scope is Rs.760 Crore. Commencing from
April 2008, the works are to be completed in 28 months.
RG states that the job is in the initial phase and the
foundation draft casting is to be finalized shortly. RG
highlights that a well knit team has been established and
works are progressing in the right direction. Sourcing of
skilled workforce was a tough task due to the remote locale
and harsh climatic condition.
Mr. Priyadarshan Barua (PB),
Construction Manager (Mechanical),
In-charge of all equipment, says that
the challenging task is in aligning of
the equipment since the tolerances
allowable are in microns. Starting from
static and rotary, each equipment is
unique in nature. Nineteen EOT cranes
ranging from 40t to 375t were installed
in SMSII and HSM building. PB states, Conarc furnace
shell was assembled and welded at site with zero defects.
PB also highlights that the most challenging task was
aligning the mould segments in caster area which was
completed successfully. As the job requires a great deal of
expertise, PB has collected data of his previous work which
he always finds useful and shares with and educates his
Mr. Tarun Ghosh (TG), Construction
Manager (Mechanical), In-charge of
the structural works in SMSII, HSM
and Coke Oven, states that though the
scope of work increased from 40,000t
to 47,600t, the schedule remains the
same. TG states, My biggest challenge
is to release the work fronts to various internal customers.
With a huge quantum of mechanical works, around 3500t
of erection and 6200t of fabrication per month, TG says,
We are in a comfortable position, as all areas have covered
roof sheeting and fronts are released for equipment
Highlighting the challenges of the project, he says that the
complexities are many since the built up structure comprises
60% of the scope. The Steel Melt Shop is a critical activity
as it involves different technological structures and
equipment with maximum erection. Since the structural
building height is to the tune of 62m, ensuring safe working
methodology was one of the major issues which requires
constant review and monitoring.

July - September 2008

Construction Manager (Piping) and
In-charge for heavy lift erection says
that the scope involves 3700t of piping
work consisting of 7.25 lakhs Inch
meter erection and 3.25 lakhs Inch dia
welding. Hydraulic piping comprises a
major part of the works in Continuous
Slab Caster, Conarc and Hot Strip Mill.
AD highlights that hydraulic piping is a major challenge as
it involves a lot of tube bending and welding works. As the
job involves a lot of heavy lifting activities, detailed scheme
preparation, methodology and planning are done prior to
the lift. The team is briefed on the process and the criticality
of the assignment.
He cites the lifting of a 181t crane girder of 43m x 3.5m
x 2.5m span to elevation at +30m with the help of a single
crane as a major milestone achievement. An EOT crane,
two 140t cross trolleys and 100t forced draft coolers were
also assembled and lifted in a single piece which saved
considerable time, manpower and effort.
Mr. Arup Kumar Ray (AKR),
Construction Manager (Civil), says,
We started our race towards achieving
3 lakh cu.m. of concrete and as on
date we have a scope of 4.6 lakhs,
having successfully completed more
than 3.5 lakh cu.m. in eighteen
months. The first challenge was the
commissioning of the batching plant within 15 days from
the commencement of works.
He says, In the first month we have completed 5000
cu.m. of concrete where the most challenging assignment
was the single pour of 2500 cu.m. concrete for the Conarc
furnace, the largest pour in the project being 12,000 cu.m.
for the re-heating furnace foundation. To achieve this, 1320t
reinforcement steel was cut, bent and placed in short period
of 38 days.
AKR highlights that the Hot Strip Mill is the most critical
and sophisticated structure of the project. The mill bay is
of size 431m x 35m wherein the state-of-art roughing and
finishing mill is housed. The slab thickness in the roughing
and finishing mill area is 2.5m.
The dimensional tolerances to be maintained for mill
foundations are very stringent. 4542 bolt boxes were to be
fixed, a Herculean task. Innovative work methodology was
adopted for shuttering works through 3.5m high steel
The entire task was completed within 14 months from the
date of excavation. AKR proudly says, I am getting
ready for the next challenge pour for the blast furnace
July - September 2008

Construction Manager, Electrical &
Instrumentation, highlights that the
electrical works valued at Rs.23.6 Crore

112 transformers, 550 HT vertical panels, electrical works
for Hot Strip Mill and Steel Melt Shop. APM states that
most of the cable tray work is completed in the SMSII area
and cable laying will start shortly and is confident of
completing the job within the targeted period.
Mr. Sunil Kumar Nayek (SKN),
Planning Manager (Civil), says
coordinating the huge volume of
concreting and structural works is a
Herculean task. Managing a mass of
workmen, providing them with the
uninterrupted flow of work is a
demanding activity.
Meticulous planning and constant monitoring are the key
factors for completion of the various schedules. Drawings
are immediately quantified and specialized items are followed
up for sourcing from clients. With the major part of the civil
works almost complete, the project is well poised for
completion within the stipulated period. SKN states
assignments at Bhushan Steel have come gradually unlike
a single order and this is a testimony of the faith reposed
by the client in L&Ts execution capabilities, the latest
package being the Rs. 32 Crore concrete road job inside the
Mr. R. Jayachandran (RJC),
Construction Manager (Civil), Incharge, Coke Oven and Slip Form,
highlights that the scope comprises
construction of two 0.84 MMTPA
batteries for Coke Oven which involves
84,000 cu.m. of concreting, 1.16 lakh
sq.m. of shuttering, and 6500t
reinforcement steel. Out of the total target, around 51,600
cu.m. of concreting, 62,000t of shuttering and 4000t
reinforcement have been completed. The challenging task
for RJC was constructing the battery foundation and other
foundations at El(-)12.0m with the critical structures
ranging up to El(+)40.0m. The battery gas pipes (around
3200 of them) had to be executed with stringent tolerances.
Being a critical task, special training was given to around
200 workmen executing high risk jobs. Though there were
many teething problems most of the works have been
streamlined. Additional works involve construction of six
120m high RCC chimneys and five overhead tanks by
slipform method. RJC asserts that the job is progressing in
the right direction and is scheduled for completion as per
the targets.


Mr. S.N. Subramanian (SNS),

Assistant Manager Planning (Civil),
feels that adhering to the construction
schedule, continuous review and
monitoring are the key elements for
the projects success. SNS views that
meticulous planning with WBS as
instrumental for various milestones
achieved at site as the scope involves multiple activities
which are interdependent. Reviewing daily inputs,
complying to the various standards and procedures and
taking stock of the deviations are some of the essentials
rigorously done at site. With huge scope for civil and
mechanical works, SNS emphasizes maximum achievement
in the shortest time was possible only through team effort.
Mr. C. Srinivas Rao (CSR),
Administration, says that being a
green field project there were many
political and local disturbances. The
local villagers were demanding labour
contract employment for mass
numbers. CSR highlights, We have
arranged good furnished family and bachelor
accommodation with requisite facilities at Angul, sufficient
transportation to all staff, and family welfare initiatives.
The ladies have formed a club which arranges monthly
get-togethers. During weekends, training programmes for
ladies on managing home front and drawing classes for
children are organized. As the workmen constitute close to
10,000, appropriate facilities and infrastructure have been
created for the accommodation ensuring a hygienic
environment. A full fledged first-aid centre with a full time
doctor and para-medical staff ensure that the basic medical
needs of the workers are met. We are maintaining a very
good relationship with the local villagers and administration
which is instrumental for the smooth progress of works at
site. As a part of corporate social responsibility, the site is
actively involved in many social initiatives. Activities such
as health check-up for school children, eye camp for staff
and workmen, AIDS awareness programme, blood donation
camp are regularly conducted.
Mr. Utpal Bhaduri (UB), Plant
Manager, states that it is an unique
job as the scope of civil and mechanical
works is equal. A large fleet of cranes
ranging from heavy duty, medium to
small, take care of the erection and
fabrication works. UB says, We have
a dedicated team which carries out
preventive maintenance regularly to ensure optimum
availability and we are able to maintain good availability
of P&M. UB states that working without a boundary
wall was one of the greatest challenges as one had to
always maintain vigil and ensure safety of equipments and
materials at site. He says that though it was a difficult


period, tremendous support from the site management saw

through the phase and the boundary wall was completed
in July 2008.
Mr. P.K. Mohapatra, (PKM),
Manager, Health
Environment, states that at Bhushan
Steel we have close to 10,000 workmen
deployed at site. Considering the huge
quantum of mechanical works, the
potential hazards are mainly from
material handling, working at heights,
deep excavation and working in confined spaces, all
workmen are screened prior to induction and then put
through a safety induction programme. Safety awareness is
created through daily safety talks, need based safety training,
spot demos for critical activities and refresher programmes.
Due to the presence of heavy machinery and cranes the
criticality is all the more. Some of the safety measures
adopted at site are periodic load check of all heavy lift
equipment, sensor system for all equipment. PKM cites,
Our efforts for all-round safety have won us the safety
appreciation certificate from Bhushan Steel for achieving
35 Million Safe Man-hours. Having seen through the initial
phase of the project, PKM is confident of achieving the
safety objectives.
Elias Misquith (EM), Manager,
Industrial Relations, says, As there
was no boundary wall, problems were
plenty during the initial days due to
local intervention but now we are in a
position from where we can progress.
With a labour force of 10,000 and
around 6500 workmen residing in the
colony, managing them and providing the necessary
infrastructure is a critical activity. An exclusive team
monitors the welfare activities. The management has
appointed a full time doctor along with para medical team
for first aid requirements. Lot of labour welfare measures
have been initiated at site to retain the workmen at site.
Mr. A. Maheswara Rao (AMR), Incharge Stores, highlights that working
in such a project is a unique experience
due to multiple assigments and EPC
contracts at different locations within
the plant area. The site progress
invariably depends on inflow of
materials whose procurement and
coordination is a challenging task. AMR strongly believes
that the secret of success is to understand people and entrust
the right job to right person, guide them in the right
direction by sharing work experience, motivating and
moulding people, ensuring their growth and seeing them
perform. He states, The happiest moment of my
professional life is the joy and pride I get after seeing the
success of those whom I have guided.

Courting Twin Success On and Off the Court

Nishkamya, daughter of Mr.V.S. Ramana, Head - Corporate
Communications, became the first ever throwball player
in Tamil Nadu to get a free medical seat (at Coimbatore
Medical College) for achievements in throwball.
A student of Hindu Senior Secondary School,
Indira Nagar, Nishkamya secured 91 per cent
in her CBSE Std. XII board exams and had
a cut-off of 181/200. She was selected in the
sports category for MBBS under the
Directorate of Medical Education, Tamil
A promising player Nishkamya was drawn
to the game when she was in class
seven. Encouraged by her school coach
Mr. A. Prabahar, she went on to represent
the State. A key player in the team, the 18year-old is feared in the throw ball fraternity for her smashes
and services.
Nishkamya was part of the Tamil Nadu team that won the
28th and 29th National Throwball Championships. She
won the Best Player Award at the first South Zone
Throwball Championship held at Perinthalamana, Kerala.
She was part of the winning team at the Bharathiyar Day

Sports Meet organized by the Sports Development Authoriy

of Tamil Nadu. Her team has also won several other national
and district-level tournaments.
Nishkamya says she owes her success to her
parents, her throwball coach, Prabahar, Mr.
Balavinayakam, Secretary, T.N. Throwball
Association, Dr. Sylendra Babu, IPS, who
was a great support, her Principal Mrs.
Padmini Sriraman and her Vice-Principal,
Mr. Kasi Viswanathan.
However the game never interfered with her
academics. When not hurling the ball in
court, she chased her dream to become a
forensic scientist.
Nishkamya says, I have always wanted to
be one, from the time I got hooked to watching medical
detective stories on Discovery Channel. An all-rounder in
the true sense, she also enjoys a game of basketball, tennis,
and badminton, not to mention shot-put and javelin too.
Nishkamya, the grand-niece of the great artist-musician
S. Rajam and the veena-legend S. Balachander, is trained in
Hindustani music. She also loves to paint.

during his captaincy of the Club.
Mr. K.V. Rangaswami, President of the Club,
welcomed the gathering and said that it was an apt
occasion to reminisce about the past and honour the
veterans. He cited the practice of the US Army where
retired people are called annually and the event celebrated
with great fervour. Hailing Mr. C.R. Ramakrishnan as
Bishma Pithamahar, KVR said that the Company has
grown because of the strong foundation laid by the
veterans through excellent values, training and building
Mr. K.G. Hariharan, past Vice President of the Club,
tracing the genesis of the reunion said that it was while
attending a similar get-together at TISCO and ITC that
he felt the need for such a function at ECC. During his
tenure as the vice-president, KGH made an initiative
towards the veterans reunion and the Club donated a
small amount and it was decided to celebrate Veterans


Day. Highlighting the importance of the event,

KGH said it was thought apt to fix a particular
day that would enable everybody to remember the
veterans reunion.
Among the retired veterans who had gathered
were Mr. C.R. Ramakrishnan, Dr. A. Ramakrishna,
Mr. A.K. Mukherjee, Mr. P.G. Ramakrishnan,
Mr. M. Subramanian
(MSR) and a host of
other past masters

Mr. C.R. Ramakrishnan (CRR), former
Managing Director, took us down the memory lane sharing his experience of having directly worked under Mr.
Larsen and Mr. Toubro. He said Mr. Toubro was like a
school teacher and a hard worker. Mr. Larsen of course
was a great visionary who would not go into much of
the detail like Mr. Toubro but by and large was a great
man in his own sense.
Mr. A.K. Mukerjee, former General Manager, said that
he never knew that an occasion could be so pleasant. He
specially mentioned about Mr. C.R. Ramakrishnans
contribution to ECC. He said CRR is a great disciplinarian and his sense of etiquette is a role model for
others. Speaking about Dr. A. Ramakrishna he said we

cannot a find a person

who is so perfect in
every aspect. He wished
growth and prosperity
in the years ahead.
Mr. P.G. Ramakrishnan
said that even after retirement he was associated with many organizations but could not
find a organization such
as ECC that it is not
a company but an institution. He attributed
the success of the
organization to the
strong foundation laid
by the leaders such as
CRR and AR.

Mr. M. Subramanian said he had the privilege of going

through 4 generations of ECC. Paying special tributes to
Mr. P.H. Mortenson, MSR said, if not for him ECC
would not have been what it is today, he created the
structure and the predominance of civil engineering in
ECC. The organization grew up because of the
decisiveness and they were not controlled by precedents.
The challenges, innovation, experiment, spirit of adventure
are the things which took ECC forward. Mr.
C.R.Ramakrishan saw to it that leaders were nurtured to
take over the mantle from the seniors. Speaking on AR,
he said that Dr. A. Ramakrishna has the divine qualities
of Rama and Krishna, never
harsh and always smiling.

that we should concentrate on people who are L&Ts

opportunities to take up higher positions.

golden melodies of yesteryears sung by Jaya TV fame

A Sojourn to the North-East

Picnickers striking a pose

Two hundred and ten members,

comprising staff and their families of
ECC Recreation Club HQ, Chennai,
went on a pleasure trip to Kolkata,
Gangtok and Darjeeling during
October 8-13, 2008. The Chennai/
Kolkata/Chennai sector was covered by
air and the Kolkata/Darjeeling/
Gangtok/ Kolkata sector by surface
Kolkata is full of grandeur and fiesta
during the pooja celebrations and for
the picnickers it was a perfect start, to
be amidst the festive ambience. They
were witness to the famous pandals
erected for the Durga pooja. For many
it was a first time experience. This was
followed by visits to the Birla
Mandir, Sisters of Charity (Home of
Mother Theresa). The highlight of the
evening was dinner and entertainment
arranged by our colleagues of Kolkata
Region, thanks to Mr. Azhaguvel, Mr.
Lehari, Mr. B.S. Dubay and Mr. A.K.

Gangtok, the next destination, is

located in the Shivalik hills of the
eastern Himalayan range at an altitude
of 4715 ft. We visited some of the
oldest Buddhist monasteries. The visit
to Tsangu lake was a breath taking
experience which was followed by an
exciting trip to Baba Harbajan Mandir
situated at a height of 14200 ft. It
was great fun for many of us who
indulged in Yak rides. The Teesta river
which runs alongside for the major
part of the journey beautifully carves
out the Himalayan range and is a sight
to behold.

the world famous Padmaja Naidu

Himalayan Zoological Park. The visit
to the park was an enthralling and
educative experience. We were able to
see endangered alpine species, Swiss
red panda, snow leopard, mountain
goat and the Siberian tiger. This was
followed by visits to two museums
the mountain museum and the Everest
museum. We also visited Ghoom
Monastery which is believed to have
been built in 1875. Some of us also
had an unexpected opportunity to visit
Port Blair as our flight was routed via
Port Blair to Chennai.

The next destination was Darjeeling

which is a Himalayan resort
commanding majestic views of Mount
Everest and Kanchenjunga. Tiger hills,
13 km from town, is synonymous with
Darjeeling at 8482 ft. It affords a
Kanchenjunga at sunrise and we were
told that, on a clear day, one can see
Mount Everest. Darjeeling is home to

Inspite of encountering unexpected

transport delays and even train
derailment, one cannot but agree that
though the tour was a tough one, it
was worth undertaking. The Teesta
river trip, Baba Mandir visit, view of
Kanchenjunga, Tsangu lake, early
morning sunrise at Tiger Hills a
once-in-a-life-time experience, that one
cannot forget.

bus ride to the Sayaji Park, which houses the zoological
garden and an extensive museum and picture gallery.
The rich collection of animals ranging from tigers,
lions, deers, birds, etc. thrilled all.
The Sayaji Rao Museum and picture gallery which houses valuable artifacts from almost all cultures of the world
immensely impressed the children. Be it the mummified body in the Egyptian section, the iron armours worn by
soldiers in the Indian section, the daintily painted crockery of the Chinese and Japanese section or the bronze
jewellery in the Tibetan and Nepal section, the sparkle in the eyes of the children said it all. The visit to the picture
gallery was an altogether different experience for the children who have only been exposed to the Indian style of
painting. Indeed a day of enjoyment and learning.
