Dear Colleague,

Happy New Year to all of you and your family members.

In spite of the challenges due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all of us have given our best to ensure good performance of the Company.

The capacity addition of 200 Circuit KM Transmission Line and 900 MVA transformation capacity during 2020 speaks of our commitment amidst tough conditions. We also ensured uninterrupted power supply to the people of Odisha during this pandemic period and timely restored power Post AMPHAN in the affected areas. Further we supplied dry ration to 2658 stranded workers along with free accommodation at 193 project locations with your help during the initial period of shutdown. I congratulate all the employees of OPTCL for their contribution in this success.

However, let us not forget the basic preventive tools i.e Social Distancing, Hand Sanitization and Face Mask. We have to continue with this new normal for some more time, at least. Let us all work together in a team spirit across all cadres and disciplines, to achieve our two core objectives i.e strengthening the Transmission network in the State and optimum reduction of Transmission Losses. Timely implementation of projects with best quality standards and technological interventions will further transform the power infrastructure in Odisha. Particularly I appeal to the young engineers and technicians to bring new innovative ideas to improve our work processes for better efficiency and effectiveness. We have to work hard with high integrity to see OPTCL reach new heights.

With best wishes for the New Year

Dr.Saurabh Garg
