Work Leading to the Recognition

During the nation-wide lockdown and subsequent prolonged period of depleted resources, restriction of attendance and limited operation of public transport, DCSEM continued important construction activities at 8 locations across the country. It also ensured uninterrupted estate management services including supply of drinking water and electric power, upkeep of road network, elevators, management of solid waste, security surveillance system etc. It also attended major breakdowns in water pipe lines and carried out pre-monsoon preventive maintenance. Accounts and Administration section of the Directorate also contributed with timely processing of work orders and payments. To ensure COVID related compliance and safeguards, DCSEM installed UV Blasters and Tunnels, sanitization booths, and thermal monitoring provisions at entry/exit points. The COVID related cases among deployed labours and employees were closely monitored and resolved.


It is a proud moment for DAE that DCSEM’s efforts as a Corona Warrior have been deservingly recognized with the Vishwakarma Award by CIDC.
