Message from the CEO – New Plans for 2017

January was an exciting month and saw the launch of the redesigned Dry Waste Centre; thanks to this, we are now able to process double the amount of waste compared to earlier!

At ELCITA, we have ushered in 2017 with new plans and ideas to take Electronics City to the next level. While we continue our journey of continuous improvement of roads, drains, security, management of all types of waste, this focus this year is going to be SMART e-city and better traffic management.

We want to improve our pavements to make them more walkable, by replacing large BESCOM/BSNL boxes with SMART equipment. I envision the township glittering with energy efficient LED street lights that adjust brightness dynamically based on street usage. We will certainly collect water usage data to help conserve water. Surveillance cameras covering the township will strengthen our hands in ensuring the safety of employees and manage traffic and parking better.

In addition, we are dreaming of a SMART City Test Bed that can be used by our own companies to pilot their products and services. This could well be the launching pad for their products and services. We have enthusiastic teams from Wipro, IISc, Mapunity, Bosch, VXL, customized technologies, Tejas, TCL and other firms joining hands to realize this vision of an efficient and sustainable city.

We visualize companies and employees in e-city partnering with ELCITA for a SMART world class township. Information will be available at our Command Centre to support the governance team and on mobile, for ELCitizens to plan their daily activity better.

Over the months, we will focus on concrete actions to realize our dreams of a smart and sustainable e-city!

    Can ELCITA help in Saving our Rivers?

    The rivers which have been nurturing us for thousands of years, today, are shrinking at an alarming rate. By 2030 we will have only 50% of the water that we need for our survival.

    One very simple yet effective means to replenish these rivers is to create a kilometerwide green cover on riversides (and half a kilometer for tributaries). Trees normalize rainfall, their roots make the soil porous, which increases the soil’s ability to hold water. However, to ensure that this solution is actually implemented, we have to act now and support the rejuvenation of our Rivers.

    The Rally for Rivers is a project that aims at reviving the rivers of India and would be executed in 3 phases. First is an awareness phase, second a Government policy formulation phase and third is the implementation phase.

    As a key first step, the Rally for Rivers awareness campaign has been launched towards building a mass momentum across the nation.

    ELCITA can play a vital role in spreading the awareness for the need to rejuvenate the Rivers of India. I request your offices first give a missed call to 80009 80009 and then send out an email / SMS / WhatsApp message to all member organizations to support the Rally for Rivers missed call campaign.

    I solicit your support for “Rally for Rivers” and look forward to hearing from you. For more details on Rally for Rivers, please visit http://RallyforRivers.org.

    Regards,
