Bengaluru India (Metro Rail News): Amit Banerjee has been appointed Chairman-cum-Managing Director (CMD) of Bharat Earth Mover Limited (BEML), an Indian Public Sector Undertaking, with effect from May 1, 2021. The Public Enterprise Selection Board (PSEB) declared his selection at a board meeting on April 26, 2021.

Shri Amit Banerjee is a Mechanical Engineering graduate from the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi. He joined BEML in 1984 as an assistant engineer, and over the course of his three-decade career with BHEL, he has worked in R&D and manufacturing. His R&D expertise includes the design and construction of a variety of products, including SSEMU, Metro Cars, and Catenary Maintenance Vehicles, among others. His team won the Raksha Mantri Award for Design Effort for Austenitic Stainless Steel EMU & Intermediate Metro Cars for the Delhi Metro Rail Project under his direction. He was instrumental in the gradual indigenization of Rolling Stock aggregates.

Shri Banerjee was Director before taking the current role (Rail& Metro). Due to the retirement of Dr. Deepak Kumar Hota, the seat has been vacant since February 1, 2021. BEML, on the other hand, had delegated his authority to MV Rajasekhar, Director (Mining and Construction) and member of the BEML board of directors.

BEML Limited, a ‘Schedule-A’ company, is critical to India’s core sectors of defense, rail, power, mining, and infrastructure. The company began with a small turnover of Rs.5 crore in 1965 and has grown to a turnover of more than Rs.3,500 crores today, thanks to its diverse business portfolio. BEML Limited’s Rail Coach Factory in Bangalore, India, was the country’s first all-steel integrated rail coach factory, which opened in 1948. It was founded with the help and technological know-how of MAN, Federal Republic of Germany. This factory was built to produce passenger rail coaches (of broad gauge) for Indian Railways in-house.

On May 11, 1964, Hindustan Aircraft Limited (now M/s. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) handed over administrative control of the factory to BEML Limited (formerly known as Bharat Earth Movers Limited).

BEML has delivered over 1,100 metro cars to different projects in India to date. Customers have praised BEML’s achievements in successfully completing the indigenization of rolling stock and expanding its manufacturing facilities.

BEML extended its position in the Metro Sector, commanding a strong market share in India, thanks to its expertise in the manufacture, integration, and testing of Metro Cars. This Rail Coach Factory has produced and supplied over 17,000 mainline passenger coaches of different types for Indian Railways’ long-distance mainline routes since its inception.
