    Shri Salil Kumar, CMD, MECON


    MECON was established in 1959 as Central Engineering & Design Bureau (CEDB) by the Govt. of India, with a handful of Engineers (just 13 Engineers), aiming at the objective of reducing our country’s dependence on foreign consultants and build indigenous capability for design & consultancy of integrated steel plants.

    CEDB was a part of the holding company of three Public Sector Integrated Steel Plants at Bhilai, Durgapur and Rourkela, known as Hindustan Steel Limited (HSL, which is now SAIL). CEDB took on a separate identity, named, ‘Metallurgical & Engineering Consultants (MECON) Limited’ in 1973, as a subsidiary of SAIL. In 1978, it was divested from SAIL and made into a completely independent company.

    So, on behalf of all MECONians… I pay our tribute to the exemplary contribution of each and every individual who has been associated with MECON, since its foundation in 1959.

    As it is the first day of the new Financial Year, let me give you a glimpse of MECON’s performance during FY 2021-22. With the efforts put in by all of you, our Company has recorded:

    • An Order booking of `1950 Crores and
    • The estimated Revenue from Operations during FY2021-22 shall be around `575 Crores and
    • With this we will remain Profitable in the 5th consecutive year!!!
    • In addition to that, I am pleased to inform that we have more than `4000 Crores of Consultancy jobs in our hand, which shall ensure a much better performance than the years gone by. In fact, if we utilize our full potential, we can double our Turnover and Profits in this new Financial Year.

    For exhibiting such cohesive teamwork and maintaining our status of being profitable, I would like to Congratulate each one of you, across the departments and locations, who have put in extraordinary efforts in realizing the Turnover and added substantially to the Bottom line.

    Let’s give a huge round of applause to Team MECON!!!

    I am pleased to inform you all, that after lot of efforts, our Pay Revision proposal is under active its consideration by concerned authorities. अब हमें अपनी Performance को ऐसा बनाये रखना है की कोई हम पर ऊँगली न उठा सके और हम Pay Revision के Financial impact को sustainably maintain कर सकें ।

    Now, before I speak about today’s celebration let me talk about the present situation of COVID-19:

    Subsequent to a long fight to sail through the three waves of corona, we have started experiencing some normalcy, though still some precautions are to be adhered to. But parallelly, we are already hearing global news about the 4th wave and thus, we need to be cautious, so that our confidence does not turn into negligence.

    Talking about today’s celebration, I understand that there is a movie made in-house and the performances are being put up by artists from our Kala Kendra as well as by our own Employees. So, first of all, I convey my appreciation for the enthusiasm and extra efforts put in by the performers and everybody involved in today’s function. Just like everyone present here, I am also looking forward to a memorable evening.
