Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Government and the Quality Council of India today launched the Odisha Gunvatta Sankalp (Odisha Quality Mission) in Bhubaneswar, in conjunction with industry organisations ASSOCHAM, FICCI, EEPC, OASME, PHDCCI, CIPET, and FHRAI. The Sankalp was launched by Odisha Chief Secretary Shri Pradeep Kumar Jena. Several politicians, industry executives, practitioners, and academics discussed promoting and prioritising quality across various sectors in the state of Odisha in order to create a quality ecosystem that supports the concept of a progressive and Sashakta Odisha.
“Odisha, with its abundant natural resources, talented and hardworking workforce, and enabling administration, is poised to be one of the States leading the mantle in India’s growth story.” It is making enormous progress in the sports area. Today, we are here to connect with the grassroots and instill the concept of Quality in the DNA of every citizen in every corner of India,” said Jaxay Shah, Chairperson of QCI.
“The Odisha government has been enthusiastic about the Gunvatta Sankalp initiative.” Our interactions with secretaries in the MSME, Electronics and IT, and skilling sectors resulted in targeted initiatives in the areas of ZED, LEAN, and ONDC. QCI will collaborate closely with the government to ensure that these initiatives are implemented as soon as possible. Dr. Ravi P. Singh, Secretary General QCI, stated, “We will be discussing, deliberating, and collaborating with the relevant partners to create an overall impact on Odisha’s economy.”
Shri Pradeep Kumar Jena agreed with the idea and stated that quality is a continual process, not a destination. “In just 98 days, the Kalinga stadium was renovated in preparation for the state’s Athletic Championship.” We built the largest hockey stadium in Rourkela in 15 months this year, allowing the state to host two consecutive Hockey World Cups. This was a high-quality job completed in a short period of time, with quality built in from the start. Even in our rath yatra, you will see how medical services are supplied to the 1.5 million participants.
“Because Odisha spends the highest percentage of its budget on infrastructure, we have the resources and the willingness to ensure that quality becomes a core component and becomes part of Odisha’s value system,” said the Chief Secretary.
Hon’ble Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik marked the event with a recorded message emphasising the importance of quality in all aspects of human activity. “Odisha’s dynamic 5T initiative has made significant inroads towards achieving quality in areas such as public service delivery, heritage tourism, healthcare, education and skilling, drinking water, and so on.” We must be able to harness the role of quality as a parameter that can be evaluated, tracked, and scaled, and collaborate to create a new and empowered Odisha,” said the Hon’ble Chief Minister.
His Excellency, culminating the Sankalp Prof. Ganeshi Lal, Governor of Odisha, attended the event and addressed the participants. He emphasised the importance of embracing quality practises across disciplines and developing a quality ecosystem in Odisha, allowing the vision of a new and empowered Odisha to be realised. “We are Adi Shakti’s siblings; we bow our heads to the smallest particle of earth.” QCI is an abbreviation for Quotient of Collectivism and Individualism. In terms of quality, we will be a worldwide product, but more than that, it must be the purity of India,” emphasised the Hon’ble Governor.
