Training Programme to GHMC Newly Recruited Assistant Engineers
First of Its Kind in the Country
The GHMC is imparting training to the newly recruited 200 Assistant Engineers by Lakshman Rao, Director & Professor for Centre of Excellence on disaster Management, JNTUHCEH about the condition of the roads duly designing the same to sort out the permanent solution of the water stagnation points etc., This training programme is basically an Institute cum Industry Interaction, first of its kind in the Country and the GHMC is the first Municipal Corporation to conduct such type of training programme to the engineering officials by using modern technologies to safeguard the road conditions by giving practical training for the convenience of the citizens.
Dr.B.Janardhan Reddy, Commissioner, GHMC has welcomed the Sri Lakshman Rao, Director & Professor for Centre of Excellence on disaster Management, JNTUHCEH for taking his time to have an interaction with the engineering officials, Chief Engineer (M), SEs, EEs and the entire engineering wing of the GHMC have participated in the training programme.
Interacting with the officials Professor Lakshman Rao, said that this programme is Research Oriented with interaction about most critical problem of water stagnation where all the engineers are exposed for creating an approach with GIS a platform by using advance technology by quick dispose of water during heavy rains on the roads.
The following are the salient features:
Proposal for adopting two kms of road each effected for water stagnation and risky roads of 200 spots for 200 Engineers of newly recruited in GHMC area to develop the roads free from impact of urban floods with mapping, measurement, monitoring, construction leads and management approaches.
As a part of industry institute interaction, Centre of Excellence on Disaster Management, JNTUHCEH is proposing to spend on data capturing with advanced special technologies to generate two and three dimensional maps duly attending data analytics and software interface.
- Area of study: 200 road stretches of nearly 400Km (each of 2 Km of influential areas) effected by water stagnations of different roads.
- Around 200 newly recruited GHMC Engineers will be trained in handling the total process by giving responsibility one flood/ rain stagnating point of the road length of influence nearly 2kms each in all directions of water stagnation points.
- Exposure: working with GIS, Problem Solving Techniques on Flood effected study spots with planning, designing, monitoring and management as knowledge transfer.
- Funding: Centre of Excellence, JNTUHCEH and GHMC Hyderabad – Rs 30 Lakhs each.
- Period of the project: 3 to 4 months
- 200 Newly recruited Engineers shall be in interaction for 1 or 2 hours per week with Centre of Excellence on Disaster Management, JNTUHCEH.
- Outcome: Each GHMC engineer will himself understands & prepares a detailed report on causes of road damage and probable solutions along with detailed estimates for each assigned specific location. (Unlike routine practice of engaging consultant and consultant giving his own reports.)
