is with a sense of pride, honour and humility that I assume the appointment of
DGBR on 01 Feb 2017. I extend my
heartiest felicitations to all officers, supervisors, subordinates, CPLs and
their families who have rendered invaluable service to this organisation.
2. The Border
Roads Organisation has made unparalleled contributions in Nation Building and National
Integration. Its pivotal role in construction, maintenance and upgradation of
strategic infrastructure, in remote and far flung border areas, has not only
strengthened our security, but also contributed immensely to the socio-economic
development of these regions. The valour displayed by its men in all major
military operations, post independence, has won it accolades from all quarters.
3. We must
continue steadfast in our endeavours to sustain ourselves as a highly
competitive and technologically proficient organisation by incorporating
contemporary practices, imbibing new technologies and ensuring quality, speed
and economy in our works. Taking our past laurels as springboards we must
respond pro-actively and positively to the ever changing dynamics of the
environment. Enhanced productivity, timely completion, better quality of works
and more responsive HR management must remain as our focus at all levels.
4. Today, as
I assume command of this elite organisation, I pay homage to all bravehearts of
BRO, who have made the supreme sacrifice in the service of the nation. I also
express my gratitude to all my illustrious predecessors whose vision and
foresight has guided us to this high level of professionalism. We need to
rededicate ourselves to our motto ‘Shramena
Sarvam Sadhyam’ to take forward our rich legacy.
5. I wish all
members of our great Organisation success, good health and happiness.
General Border Roads
