NTPC, India's biggest power company in public sector organised a workshop for their senior officials drawn from Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad on 'E-Magazine'.  NTPC produces more than 43000 MW of power (more than one-fourth of India's power requirement). They are publishing internal emagazines for internal circulation.  In order to improve the quality and to professionalise the emagzine, they organised a workshop on 29th Jan 2015 at their Chennai office.

Since the internal emagazines are made by technical people, Srinivasan encouraged them by saying that the technical people were used to 'accuracy and precision', they could do better in communication too.  He also the quoted the example of Mr Sridharan, a mechanical engineer and Chief PRO of Southern Railway few years ago.  Mr Sridharan was awarded by the then Railway Minister for designing the present railway time table.

Srinivasan walked the audience through various aspects of making of emagazine and also gave important tips.

Mr T N Ashok gave suggestions for improving writing skills.  Mr S Balu emphasised the need for complying with the cyber laws.

The programme was organised by Mr Elbert, Dy. GM, Corporate Communication of NTPC, Hyderabad.  Shri Bhowmick and Shri R M Radhakrishnan, General Managers of NTPC were present during the entire workshop.  Ms Usha, Mr Praveen and Mr Narayanan, Senior officials ensured the logistics.
