Message from General Secretary

I took over as General Secretary of the Pantnagar Technology Alumni Association (PTAA) last year with great pride and humility. It is a matter of great honour for me and I feel humbled to have been given an opportunity to work for PTAA. I promise that during my term in office, we will give our best possible efforts to widen the participation of alumni in the affairs of our alumni association and try to make it a lively and vibrant body. The alumni of College of Technology (COT) are spread world over and we are committed to reach its members wherever they are through a dynamic and active website. We assure you to make it more effective and informative.

We always have had full support of our Dean, who happens to be the patron of PTAA as well. Past Presidents and General Secretaries of the association, fully acquainted with the opportunities and challenges facing the association, are always standing by us and have been guiding us all through. I seek participation of each alumnus in helping us achieve our objectives for the association. With the support of all, I am confident that we will take PTAA to new heights.

A proposal to start a Silver Jubilee fund came up in the meeting of the organizing committee held recently on 06.09.2019 to help finance not only organising the multiple activities next year onwards but also to support the proposed building of PTAA. Rs.35,000.00 generously provided by Dr. Gaurav Tewari, Silver Jubilee batch 1994 (pass out) for the back cover of Souvenir this year is duly acknowledged. He has also come forward to initiate awards in the name of his mother (Late Smt. Mithilesh Tiwari) to first three toppers of B. Tech. (Agril. Engg.) every year. I thank you Dr. Tiwari on behalf of the PTAA. I request other members also to come forward and help us in our endeavors. It is also proposed to felicitate all those contributing greater than Rs. One lakh at the Foundation day of the Alma Mater, celebrated every year in November. I promise to use the funds judiciously and well.

Despite the unwarranted circumstances prevailing in the campus during the last month, all efforts are made to celebrate Samanvay-2019, this year with greater participation of the alumni on 15th September 2019.

If you have any views on working of PTAA, I will be too pleased to receive them. You may send them to me at samanvay@gbpuat-tech.ac.in, ajitkfce@yahoo.com. I do look forward to your active participation in the coming years as well.


Thanking You,

With warm regards
