Tata Power DDL’s ‘Lineman Diwas’ Celebrates A Critical Contribution

Linemen, or the most visible part of discoms other than actual infrastructure are finally getting recognition for the key role they serve. Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited, the discom supplying power to 7 million in North Delhi, celebrated Lineman Diwas last weel. The aim of the event was to recognize the tireless efforts of the most important pillar of power distribution – the linemen and ground maintenance staff. The theme for the event was ‘Seva, Suraksha, Swabhimaan’, which honours and appreciates the selfless service of linemen across the country. In line with company’s vision to create equal on-field opportunities, this year it has also on-boarded 2 skilled female line staff.

Goutam Roy – Member (Power System), Central Electricity Authority was the chief guest, in the presence of Ganesh Srinivasan, CEO, Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited and linemen along with other staff of the company at Tata Power-DDL’s Learning Centre at Rohini, Delhi.

Well trained Linemen have been the key to keep the grid working and ensuring overall maintainance, new connections etc are taken care of. This was never brought out more clearly than during the pandemic, when linemen went beyond the call of duty to ensure power systems worked as promised. As the government commits to higher quality levels and customer rights, the role of linemen will become increasingly critical for discoms to deliver. This year, Tata Power DDL has been joined by other discoms from Delhi, Odisha, Mumbai, Ajmer and some parts of J&K, UP, Jharkhand and Ajmer City. Nearly 15,000 linemen have been recognized as a part of the celebrations for Lineman Diwas.

Commenting on the initiative, Sanjay Banga, President- T&D, Tata Power said, The commitment of our employees has been phenomenal, it is no less than that of other than frontline workers. Our robust systems helped us to quickly adapt and ensure uninterrupted power supply during the pandemic, not just in Delhi but other locations also. It was a unique capability that was demonstrated not just by Tata Power but also other discoms across the country. We salute their spirit and commitment to brave all odds and contribute positively towards the country during difficult times.

Lineman Diwas also marks the beginning of Safety Week nationally. As a safety conscious organization Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited strives to build a zero harm culture and urges everyone, especially its field staff to take due safety measures while performing their tasks.
