About Sangam



            Prior to 14.11.1987, TNEB Engineers’ Sangam { Regd.No.124/ MDS ( Recognized)} and Engineering Diploma Holders Association     (Regd.No.54/Tri) are the two organizations functioning in the TNEB for the welfare of the Diploma Engineers.


             Having realized the need for unification of the organizations , the leaders from both sides moved towards each others and merged the organizations at Trichy on 14.11.1987 and started functioning in the name of TNEB.Engineers’ Sangam.

When the trade unions are splitting into groups and disintegrating into pieces, the Diploma Engineers’ community in TNEB alone came forward for a merger, sinking the differences for the sake of the welfare of the Diploma Engineers .


              Initially Diploma Engineers are entered as Temporary casual labourer in the Board, creating permanent working condition from daily wages to time scale of pay, reservation of posts in  RWE categories, studying  Degree in Engineering(In part time), acquiring knowledge and promotion through the higher education, carving out a place for Diploma and  Degree Engineers(Through internal selection), continuously improving and enhancing the service conditions for them are the prime importance of this organization.


                Multifaceted members, Technocrats ( Diploma, PG diploma, Degree, PG Degree)  with various fields of studies like M.B.A and M.phil in  Personnel Management, Financial management, Human Resource, Human Rights, Industrial Relations , Public Administration, etc are common in this organization. Their contribution to the TNEB is remarkable. Primarily they are working at the cutting edge of the TNEB, boosting the standards and Quality of supply by their rich experience in the field and implementing the welfare measures of the Governments of the State and the central and reaching the public in time.


         It is a pride for this organization to say that the Diploma Engineers entered as TCL equipped and enhanced themselves to become the officers of Class I service and holding the posts of Executive Engineers, Superintending Engineers, Chief Engineers, etc., by the determined actions of this sangam.
