Focus on productivity improvement: Arup Choudhury

Arup Roy Choudhury, Chairman & Managing Director of NTPC

Employees are the most important asset of our organization. HR today is moving from the role of a facilitator to a strategic business partner. Our HR policies and practices have a sharp focus on productivity improvement. At the beginning of our journey, we operated with a PLF of about 80 percent and now we have graduated to above 90 percent at allocations. This has been possible through various innovative skill development practices in operations and maintenance. Recently we have also introduced certain urban facilities like wi-fi, DTH and e-book reader at projects to make these locations more attractive and engaging for our employees.

From a Man-megawatt ratio of above 1, we have brought it down to less than 0.71 and in the coming years, we are looking at meeting the international benchmark of less than 0.3 Man-megawatt ratio. Such development is a result of the policies and practices that have evolved with the changing market scenario and with the integration of the HR policies with the vision of the company, leading us to be the world’s best and the largest power producer.
