A three-day comprehensive Management Development programme of professional insurance surveyors got off to a flying start today at Birla Institute of Management Technology (BIMTECH), Greater Noida, NCR. The programme was based on Motor and Fire Insurance, in association with Indian Institute of Insurance Surveyors and Loss Assessors (IIISLA). The event was the first of its kind being held at the Institute.
Over a hundred surveyors from all over India participated in this residential programme. Veteran surveyor, industry experts and seasoned members of the faculty of BIMTECH have been together conducting this MDP programme.
Prof (Dr.) Harivansh Chaturvedi, Director, BIMTECH expressed his happiness and felt that BIMTECH has come a long way to establish itself as an ace institution of professional excellence.
The initiative to hold this MDP at BIMTECH was taken some time back, when a team of IIISLA members led by Mr. Ashok Kumar, former President IIISLA and currently a member of the SLA –IT committee, IRDAI visited BIMTECH and held a meeting with Prof. Pratik Priyadarshi of BIMTECH.
Veteran surveyors like Mr. H.M.Walia, Mr. M.S. Sainani, Mr. P.C. Shukla, Mr. A.K. Sinha along with BIMTECH faculty members Prof. (Dr.) Abhijit Chattoraj and Prof. Pratik Priyadarshi engaged various interactive sessions in this three-day programme. Prof. (Dr.) Anupam Varma at his inaugural address urged the professional surveyors to maintain their independent identities so that it can instill confidence among the policyholders. Mr. B. Shiva Prakash, President, IIISLA welcomed this initiative to hold MDP programme at BIMTECH and hoped that this association would consolidate in days to come.
Quote by Ashok Kumar
IISLA has been instrumental in imparting professional training for insurance surveyors for the last four years with a view to indoctrinating professional excellence among its members. We have been looking for an opportunity to hold an MDP programme in the capital of the country and we are extremely happy that we forged a relationship with an institute of reckoning like BIMTECH. We intend to design a course module in crop insurance with the help of BIMTECH to better serve the aspiration of the rural population.
