I have been working with RITES LTD for more than 30 years and presently heading the Urban Transport SBU. This SBU is responsible for planning, design and implementation of Mass Rapid Transit Systems in urban areas including bus rapid transit, metro, light rail transit and monorails. We are associated with almost all major mass transit projects under planning, design or execution in India. We had also successfully completed Kampala Urban Traffic Improvement Project funded by the World Bank.
I am responsible for business promotion, client coordination and diversification of activities for the Urban Transport SBU of RITES LTD.
We are now planning to explore the possibilities to take up similar assignments relating to mass rapid transit systems in various African cities - by using the opportunity being presented by this conclave.
