Dear Members,
This is my first dialogue with you,
through the
‘News Letter’,
Chairman –
News Letter is
medium to
Members. So, I
am taking this opportunity to convey my
thoughts and future plans. Some of you
have attended the AGM on 30/10/14
when I had indicated a few of my
AIMs. Today I will be more elaborative.
At every event and function held
at PLC we proudly mention that “Pune
Local Centre got Best Centre Award’
8 times during the recent past……..”.
To regain this glory, we will have to
work with harmony, dedication and
affection. In other words, give our best
by shedding personal prestige and pride.
We have a very good team of
stalwarts along with young members
like Er. Vipin Munot, Er. Aaradhana
Deshmukh, Er. Harshwardhan Devkate,
Er. Prashant Patel etc. Another asset
is, an enthusiastic Hon. Secretary in
Er. V. N. Shinde.
I am confident that the committee,
with the co-operation, help and guidance
of the past office- bearers, committee
members and well wishers, will achieve

as special invitees.
Following points were raised by the
members :
The HQ charges Rs. 5800/- per
ST/T applicant. The HQ should share
15% amount to Local Centre per ST/T
Decentralization of HQ.
Memberships should be granted zone
wise. For that purpose 4 to 5 zones
should be created to decide
Decentralization of section A- B
AMIE Examination zonewise.
In Engineering Colleges and
Universities AMIE Qualification is not
recognized at par B E/ B Tech. for
recruitment of Lecturership.
For M. Tech./ M E Courses, the
AMIE candidates are required to qualify
GATE examination where as Non zero
score is acceptable from B E/ B Tech.
For M E/ M Tech. Admission the
AMIE and Diploma qualification is
compulsory therefore Non Diploma AMIE candidates cannot get admission
for M E/ M Tech. Courses.
In Pune we conduct AMIE
section A & B examination at 3 Venues.
Therefore number of candidates need
to be curtailed, since 3 Venues may
not be available every time due to
University examinations dates clash
with our schedule of Summer & Winter
For AMIE we mostly get students
from Polytechnics therefore Rural
polytechnics should be accepted by IE
(I), so that students from Rural Area
may appear for AMIE examination.

Dear Sir,
I am Rohan Jadhav. Presently working in GE (Bangalore)
in Renewables Engineering. I was a student at the Centre in the
year 2002 and 2003 for my GATE preparation.
I visited the Pune Centre it was a great nostalgic moment.
I immensely benefitted by the coaching I got at the institute for
GATE. Great teachers, good ambience and disciplined culture. I
still cherish those moments and because of the Institution of
Engineers (PLC) I successfully qualified for GATE and got the
admission at IIT Roorkee.
I want to thank all at the Institution for the
benefits I got which were instrumental in laying the
foundation for my career.
I was well received by the Hon. Secretary, Er. Vasant
Shinde during my visit and thank him.
Please let me know if I could be of any help in any way. I
can be reached via this email & mobile number.
A New Forum is formed in PLC named
