Please give us a summary of your Career.

I was placed in TCS from the campus placements of my college. I worked there as an operator for about 2 years. After that, I started my own transportation business with aid from some colleagues. The business has been running smoothly and profits have been rising over the years. I get the maximum profit from the transportation of bulk pulp to the nearby paper industry. My business has tie-ups with the local coal mines too and usually get contracts for the transportation of their products out of the state.

Please describe your current Job Responsibilities as co-owner of Nirbhai Transportation.

“Make a list of ongoing and outgoing trucks. Overlook at what and where they are carrying and to whom and where from. Note down the worth of products moving and calculate the expenses and profit.
Take them down to maintenance and make sure they get out as soon as possible. Check their condition after and before every trip. Look at driver’s and spotter’s expenses on the trip and off the trip. Pay them off to their satisfaction and all this by keeping in mind that the company still makes a good profit. ”
