Message from the Principal (Mr. Abhishek Awasthi)

I congratulate all my students for their wise decision to get them admitted to Government Polytechnic Bilaspur. Thanks to the dedicated unified efforts of the Government of Chhattisgarh, Directorate of Technical Education, Faculty Members and Staff, the Institution is progressing very fast. The Institution has been started from session 2013-14, and it is situated in GEC Bilaspur campus which is calm, peaceful and is surrounded by natural beauty. The atmosphere is congenial for serious studies. It is expected that this Polytechnic will become one of the outstanding Polytechnics in the state.

The Diploma holders play very important roles in industrial and economic developments of the country. They acquire specialized skill in the chosen areas and provide much needed supports in any engineering establishments. Besides, the Students with Diploma in Engineering also provide support services in various other sectors of economy including service sector.

It is well established that our country needs large number of skilled manpower to keep pace of current and future requirements. The Diploma holders are most sought after these days and they are quickly employed in any industry.

It is estimated that after 2020 India will become most populous nation of the world, with extremely high demand for Electrical Energy. This region of India i.e. Chhattisgarh has huge coal, aluminum and iron reserves and is ideal to set up a power plant and Mining activities. It also has huge potential for construction and infrastructure development.

It was therefore decided by policy makers to open this institute with core branches like Electrical, Civil and Mining Engineering. Currently admissions are offered in Electrical Engineering; however in near future other branches will also be started as soon as new building comes up in Koni at its 5.00 acres of land.

Government of Chhattisgarh is already a brand name in the field of education having a plethora of career option in engineering education with 3 Government Engineering Colleges and 28 Government Polytechnics in state. Our synergy with corporate will open up new frontiers in placement activities in all the disciplines and will enable the prospective students to be placed in reputed companies.

We encourage you and warmly welcome you at the institution devoted to excellence in technical education and student development. I hope you will continue to be with us in our dedication to objectives and goals along with commitment to society we live in. t

In the last but not least I request all parents, to look after the attendance of their wards, and check their performance regularly in tests, assignments, orals, group discussions, mid semester and final examinations. Parents should also be in close touch with teachers and undersigned.

Lastly I wish a very comfortable stay of my students during their Diploma Program.
