Bhubaneswar: NALCO CMD Dr Tapan Kumar Chand has been conferred with the prestigious ‘NIPM Ratna Award’ at the 37th NIPM’ Annual National Conference NATCON-2018 held at Pune on Friday.

Dr Chand was given the award in recognition to his significant contribution to People Management & Strategic Leadership.

He dedicated the award to HR professionals in the country and the Team NALCO.

Sharing his thoughts, Chand said, “We are now in the threshold of 4th industrial revolution. The 1st Industrial revolution marked the shift from muscle power to steam power while the 2nd revolution occurred with the application of electricity and mass production.

With the 3rd revolution, it gave further wings to human efforts with the implementation of IT & Automation.  Now with the emerging 4th industrial revolution, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Robotics, Augmented Reality etc would be the trendsetters.”

The NALCO CMD further said that the new technology ‘Industry 4.0’, will bring in a substantial reduction in capital investments and Indian industries needs to leverage it to remain globally competitive.

“The need for the Industry is to prepare for the 4th Industrial revolution and Industry 4.0 Technology,” he said.
