Please give us a summary of your Career.

I passed my under graduation course in 1995. At that time, my father was the Head of the Hindalco mining in Bhawnathpur, so I got to work with him. My main responsibility was to handle the administrative work. Sometimes, I also went for a field inspection. A few years later, my father expired and I had to take up his post as the head of the company. Years later the mining operation had to be shut down due to too much of Naxalite disturbance in the area. I then managed to get work in Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) but that work too did not last long due to disturbances in the area. Finally, I took all my resources and moved to Greater Noida where I joined hands with the Conqueror Group and am still working with them.

Please describe your current Job Responsibilities.

My daily routine starts off by checking the various emails and letters that I have received from the HR departments of other companies. I then attend to the requests where the goods like the light pole, solar panels and other types of types of equipment have to be supplied. Before lunch, I along with my assistant, go to the workplace to see if everything is in order and if there are any concerns. We usually have a meeting where the supply demands are presented. I sort out which contract seems more profitable and start negotiations with the party concerned.
