Gen Next to soon shoulder bigger responsibilities in WCL
The Western Coalfields Limited's ambitious plan of 60 MT production by 2019-20 and taking it further to 100 MT lies with the firm's young brigade, Coal India Limited's former Chairman Partha Bhattacharya has said.
To achieve the ambitious plan of producing more coal, the WCL, a subsidiary of CIL, is looking towards young generation officers to come up with innovative ideas, and a seminar in this regard, titled 'Role of Gen Next The future leaders in Vision - 2020', was held here on Saturday.
Bhattacharya said that 80 per cent of the country's energy requirement is fulfilled by CIL and one should feel proud to work with the world's largest coal producer. The young generation should improve the image of coal industry for its better future, he said. Sharing his experience as the Chairman of Coal India, he spoke about how CIL was steered into a profit-making company. Guiding the young brigade, Bhattacharya said as future leaders they should shoulder the responsibilities with adequate preparations to help the company in achieving its ambitious growth target.
WCL Chairman and Managing Director Rajiv Ranjan Mishra brought forward 26 leaders from among the 500 young officers of the company to initiate an out-of-the-box thinking and suggest new ideas to achieve company's ambitious plans.
A Vision 2020 document of the company was also presented during the programme.
