Crossing Bridges successfully.....

Pratyaya Amrit, a 1991 batch IAS took over as the head of the Bihar Rajya Pul Nirman Nigam, in April 2006. In 30 years, the Nigam had constructed 330 bridges, and was on the verge of liquidation on Rabri Devi's initiative. Since 2006, the Nigam has built 336 bridges, and the accumulated loss of 17 crores since its inception, has now been converted into a profit of 83.80 crores.

This has been achieved by motivating the staff, creating decent working conditions, weeding out bad contractors, rewarding good work, and the top man's personal attention to the specific problems. Inspectors film bridge progress on cellphones and send it to the Head.

Bridges are the flood-prone state's lifelines, with 28 of the 38 districts floodprone. During the Kosi floods, the Nigam donated 20 crores. Reliance, with 9 crores came second. Details .

Just goes to show that the system in rotten and how a combination of a favourable political environment and individual commitment can deliver what now appear to be exceptional results. One can only imagine where India would have been today if this combo had been the norm rather than the rare exception it has become.

It is all about leadership and leadership quality.
Lallu-Rabari had a totally different take on management.
Let us wish we get leaders like Nitish and Modi(not because of BJP)to Govern the country.We would be different state altogether,but......
