Tata Refractories (TRL), Belpahar, conducted an entrepreneur development programme (EDP) for a group of eleven small and medium enterprise (SME) entrepreneurs of Chirkunda Refractories Cluster, Jharkhand, at the JJ Irani Centre for Learning, Belpahar

The programme was intended to explore scope for large scale enterprise (LSE) and SME integration, understand modern refractories business practices and world-class manufacturing facilities. The group was led by HP Biyani, MD, Raj Ceramics, and comprised small and medium refractories manufacturers of Chirkunda.

AK Chattopadhyay, MD, TRL, in his capacity as chairman of IRMA in 2009 in Chirkunda, Jharkhand, started this initiative to build technology competency in the SME sector. He is presently the chairman of the SME committee of the Confederation of Indian Industry (Eastern Region).

A Dasgupta, senior officer, IRMA, accompanied the group. In the absence of Mr Chattopadhyay, the programme was inaugurated by Priyabrata Panda, COO, TRL, and senior executives including PK Patel, H Sehgal, S Adak, P Chakravarty and K K Panigrahi gave inputs on plant management, energy management, product development, refractories technology and integration of LSE and SME. The HRD department, TRL, coordinated the programme.

This programme was sponsored by the Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise, Government of India, and jointly organised by Indian Refractories Makers’ Association (IRMA) and TRL.
