HAL inducts graduates from IITs and BITS Pilani
Bangalore: Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL), a hub for advanced light combat aircraft has inducted 34 young engineers from the IITs and BITS Pilani, for the first time. The graduates will be posted at HAL's R&D centers, including ARDC (Bangalore), SLRDC (Hyderabad) and TAD (Kanpur) after completing their 52-week training.

N. Seshadri, the Executive Director of Rotary Wing Research and Design Centre, HAL, said that the young engineers should update their knowledge with the increasing challenges in the aerospace field. The engineers were selected through rigorous campus recruitment campaign by HAL. "Knowledge-enhancement is the key and HAL will back all practical solutions that will reduce time and cost," said Seshadri.

Handling an order book of 40,000 crore, HAL is expected to tread on the path to become a potential expert hub. Anantha Krishnan, the HAL's spokesperson said, "Dhruv, an advanced light helicopter is in demand in the country and the overseas." Also, HAL is expecting orders from Border Security Force (BSF).

1: There is nothing new in this report. This exercise is carried out every year by HAL. Only the selection criteria varies as per the whims and fancies of the Policy makers. What is interesting to note is how many really go up the corporate ladder in the years to follow, how many excel in their performance and how many stick to the organization after a few years. The pay structure of HAL is not linked to any pay commission but is drawn out independantly within the guidelines set up by the ministry.

2: Students who graduate from BITS Pilani which is one among the top ranking universities in India Today are Dreamers, Performers and Achievers as well as ambassadors for Brand BITS Pilani. The robots put by BITSians at Robogames USA 2009 won the country a silver and two bronze medals. Robogames is indeed the Olympics among champion robots from all parts of the world.

3: 6th pay revision does not apply to HAL or other CPSE,they have the seperate committee and as per their recommendation (already implemented) it will be very difficult for HAL/other CPSE(except oil and power) to retain the talent once recession period is over.

7: Correction......

This is very good approach/initiative. I think now ppl will think to work with govt companies. Hope other public sector companies also follow HAL.

Like BEML, BHEL, OIL Companies, Railways and other Companies should follow HAL.

9: Excellent and innovative approach to keep our young talent back in the country and to tap their maximum potential. Indian leaders should innovate such moves in other sectors whether in the public or private sectors. Finally, our pool of talent will not migrate for greener pastures.

This will also help in establishing a domestic growth contibuting to the grander economic values of the country.
