Rourkela, which in Sadri dialect spoken by local Tribal means “Your Village”, was a tiny village till the year 1952. Once decision was taken by the Government of India to set up an Integrated Steel Plant here and foundation for a Temple of Modern India' was laid, the process of development started, and to cope up with the rising demand for provisions, services and construction materials, businessmen, industrialists and contractors from different parts of Orissa and other states started establishing themselves in and around Rourkela. Rourkela or "Your Village" in its true sense embraced each and every body who so ever came to stay here and from any part of the State or country. With rapid industrialization, "Roue" became "Ruhr" of India for West Germans - the technical collaborators of the Steel Plant.
We are on a never ending journey for a better tomorrow. I would like to convey my sincere thanks to the Former Presidents, out Going Executive Committee Team 2015-16, whom I call “achievers” for creating milestones and for having fulfilled their aims and objectives.
This year 2016-17, we have prepared and analyzed work plans, strategies, located challenges, anticipated goals and vision for the 365 days given to us and for that we have to bring laurels to our Chamber. We have slogan for this year endeavor which reads “Goals Beyond Expectations” to create a new milestone for the Chamber, for our State in particular and for the Country as a whole.
It is essential and vital for all of us to work as a team with unity, be honest and sincere to the post and chair, work vigorously to achieve the results and most important to stay away from politics and invest time in achieving goals. It is very necessary to bring everybody closer, give attention to all members equally and to address their problems and suggestions at proper forum. Industry, Trade & Commerce is what we all belong to. We have to keep its development, its prosperity and survival at the top priority.
It’s been a wonderful journey so far both personally and professionally. When I count all the things I am grateful for, I feel immensely grateful to this beautiful city of Rourkela where I grew as a child, showered with the love of family, friends and elders. I feel grateful for the motivation and encouragement that my elders and friends never denied me every time I wanted to embrace a challenge and I feel grateful that you never stopped believing in me.
