Other contribution for my own organization (JNU) 

  1. 1. As Faculty Advisor to the Vice Chancellor JNU on Water Resource Management (1994 to 2008) Selected groundwater exploration sites, Artificial recharge sites and Integrated Water Resource Management for JNU by using satellite data and geophysical methods. In 1994 initiated Ground water drilling in the campus successfully. Further in 2005-2006-2007-2008 selected 8 sites utilizing Magnetic, Resistivity and Satellite data, the discharge was very good in all these Tube wells drilled so far (20,000 LPH to 40,000 LPH with less than 10 meter drawdown). The University is totally depending on this water during no supply of MCD.
  2. Helped Campus Development committee since 1992 and JNUTA in scientific planning by using DEM Satellite data for the expansion of JNU campus.
