Welcom to MEAI
At the outset,I would like to express my gratitude to all the members of MEAI for reposing faith in me as President for the year 2013-2015 of this multi-disciplinary august body of nearly 4500 members. I take this opportunity to record my appreciation of the invaluable contribution of my predecessors and functionaries of the association who due to their unstinted support and involvement have helped MEAI grow to 25 Chapters located in almost all the mining regions of the country. It will be my endeavor to carry the weighty legacy of the fame of MEAI further, keeping the spirit of MEAI high with the support and guidance from all the members.
From President's Desk
In this challenging situation, MEAI should come forward to channelize its asset in the form of large pool of Engineers and Scientists to discuss, share, exchange and impart this “practical wisdom” to all the disciplines engaged or connected with the Mining Industry. MEAI members should volunteerto take up this as a “Nation Building Mission” with focus on“Sustainable Mining” to enhance the requisite skills and managerial competence at all levelsstarting from the levelof Mine Owners, Managers &Engineers to Chemists and Mine/Plant Operator, drawing facultyfrom among members, institutes, regulatory agencies, industry etc. Iam afraid that unless we do this the wisdom which resides withinthe members will go unnoticed and wewill repeat our failures.
