                                                Dear Friends,

                                                Greetings to all my colleagues in PESO and the readers! I am looking forward to my
                                                superannuation on 31st March, 2011. Perhaps this may be last time I may communicate with
                                                you in the News Letter of PESO.
                                                Like me a number of senior officers of PESO are also superannuating in 2011. This may
                                                initially be discomforting to the organisation, but surely a lot of momentum has been created
                                                in all the ranks of PESOin recent times to tide over any difficulty and I have no doubt in my
                                                mind that the flag of PESOwill be carried on by all the officers and staff of PESOwith dignity
                                                and honour.
                                               PESO is standing at the cross roads now. In the last couple of years many new things have
                                               emerged having bearing on the functioning of PESO.In the Explosives side the security angle
has attracted attention of the nation. Many steps have been taken to prevent unauthorised activities relating to transaction of explosives.
More steps are under way. But now the security angle is also upon PESO.Ammonium Nitrate transactions have come to the for~. Shortly the
rules on Ammonium Nitrate may come and increase the responsibility of PESOsubstantially.
Accident in IOC terminal at Jaipur brought out the need to not only check the layout and infrastructure but also actual working ofthe terminal.
Observance to safe operating procedures, provisions of emergency shut down systems, mock drills, review of Hazop studies, upgrading of
safety standards and presence of trained and experienced manpower have come to focus. It is necessary that petroleum industry and officers
of PESOtake note of Sri. M.B. Lal committee report, for implementation.
Singrauli accident in SME support plants has opened our eyes to check the p~ocesssafety and interlocks, raw materials, explosives vans and
connected issues.                                                          •
Gas Cylinder leakage in Mumbai Port Trust has caused heartburn among PESOofficers by the attitude of different authorities in trying to post
the blame for the leakage atthe doors of PESO,though PESOhas no scope for any role in the affairs of the Port in this matter.
There is no awareness in the public about the vastly different topics being handled by PESOand the volume of work it handles with a skeleton
strength of manpower and virtually no infrastructure or facilities or even insurance for the hazardous work being done by officials of PESO.
There is a pressing need for PESOto find ways of creating this awareness in the general public so that there is proper appreciation of work
being done in PESO.Because of this every sector of industry or the organisations connected with particular sector view only from their narrow
view point and unreasonably expect PESOto do every thing. PESOis suffering because of the insensitivity of the concerned to realise the
limitations under which PESOis forced to deliver.
There is lot of work being undertaken in PESOfor streamlining all the functions and for capacity building of officers. All areas of work are
being fine tuned. The support site is being used extensively for internal communications of work procedures.
Systematic work is under way for monitoring of competent persons, for recognising competent persons in explosives factories, publication of
authorised list of explosives, to authorise all combination fireworks items, security and safety audit of all explosives units, safety audit of
refineries and all types MAH installations including pipelines.
It is also proposed to make a panel of persons / agencies for undertaking independent audit of types of MAH installations.
PESOhas now embarked upon a gigantic exercise of evaluating the needs of the organisation for functioning in the changed scenario and is
about to submit a comprehensive document to the Ministry covering manpower and infrastructure needs of PESOfor effective functioning.
Similarly there is an ongoing exercise for identifying the points for amendment to the Rules so that there remains no ambiguity and the
functions of PESOare clearly defined and no body should be able to point a finger to PESO.
The process of decision making has been made a team work involving all the officers of PESOand it is for individual officers to take initiative
and participate in effective working of PESO.
In the end I extend my best wishes to all the colleagues and readers too. I expect the officers to rise above petty issues, behave in a
responsible way, and do his or her work in a transparent, honest manner with a smile.
Let us all be loyal to PESOand its objectives and glorify PESOby our sincere, hard and dedicated work!
May God Bless You!!
