My dear TCILians,

A very warm greetings to each and every one of you. It gives me immense pleasure to join your Company and step in to the position of the Chairman and Managing Director of TCIL, I am reminded of my very first day when I joined Department of Telecommunications in 1990.

The last thirty one years have passed by very quickly. It has been an immensely empowering journey but as I take up the coveted role of CMD TCIL, I am conscious of the enormous task and responsibility that this position brings with it and the demands it is going to place on me at a personal and professional level.

I would like to first acknowledge and applaud the spirit and courage of fellow employees, who are fighting day in and day out to keep TCIL at this level. This includes several employees of our Company, who are constantly working hand in hand with the clients and are working tirelessly to serve our customers, our communities and our company. My heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all of them. They are doing a great service to the Company and to our nation.

TCIL has achieved a turnover of about Rs. 1780 Crores during the year 20-21. TCIL is definitely poised for a period of unprecedented growth. We have a long way to go and the actual work starts now.

Our Company as an industry pioneer will take innovative measures with in-house and global players to optimize values and create a new brand image of TCIL.

I specially look forward to my colleagues Shri Rajiv Gupta Director Projects, Shri Kamendra Kumar Director Technical and Shri Narendra Jain Director Finance whose support is going to be vital in taking forward this company to the trajectory of growth.

To improve productivity, efficiency, reduce time in decision making and bring sense of responsibility within organisation, steps have been taken to empower the executives at various levels to provide them autonomy in taking business decisions. I hope our officers with customer focussed out-of-box approach will leverage this opportunity to offer innovative solutions, building customer trust and usher the organisation to glorious heights. The COVID on one side has been very challenging for citizens, but at same time has opened lot of windows of opportunities for TCIL to offer technology based solutions to help people in day to day life and in business operations particularly in the area of e-education, e-health, e-governance, safety and security. I hope each employee shall work to its full potential as a team to achieve TCILs vision and mission. The TCIL flag and its reputation depends on you more than anyone else.

I convey my thanks to each employ of the Company, without whose sincere efforts and enduring commitment, the Company would not have performed and sustained during these very difficult and challenging times. I extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to the various government organisations and authorities, company's valued customers, suppliers, vendors, investors, bankers, and stakeholders, for the consistent and resolute cooperation and trust, and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic that we have been facing. Kindly join me in taking a pledge to undertake the role assigned to each one of us with sincerity, dedication and cooperation.

Together, we are committed to transform TCIL into a ‘First Choice of Customer’ company standing on the solid foundation of customer trust and loyalty. In the words of the famous, author Napoleon Hill-“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”

Today, I, and my colleagues on the Board offer our heartfelt condolences to all those in our TCIL Family who have lost their loved ones to this pandemic.

Together we will make this journey worthwhile. Thank you.
