Bhopal: A five-day 89th  Orientation Course in Records Management for Departmental  Record Officers (DROs)  was inaugurated here at the Regional Office of National Archives of India, (NAI), on Monday.


S. B. Ota, Regional Director Archaeological Survey of India, Central Zone, Bhopal, who was the chief guest at the inaugural function. K. L. Silawat, Deputy Chief Controller of Explosives, Bhopal was Guest of Honour on the occasion.


Sr. Archivist Syed Fareed Ahmad, Course Coordinator from NAI Headquarters in New Delhi, Dr. M. A. Haque, Assistant Director at the Regional Office of NAI at Bhopal, along with his office colleagues Archivist  V. K. Juneja and Asstt. Archivists Dr. D. K. Sharma were present on the occasion. About a dozen delegates from the Central Government departments from all over India are attending the orientation course.


Ota speaking on the occasion Ota said though creation of records is in our blood but managing it is very poor as it is the last on our priority list. Records are not created to be just dumped but have to be utilized at the right moment when it is required the most.


He said record is information of the yesteryears and it is power. “Person who has grip over the records is powerful”, he remarked. He lamented that all of us neglect record. “We have to learn to keep records and know how to manage it”, he emphasized.


Earlier, Dr. M. A. Haque while welcoming guests and delegates  said records are governments memory and their proper management is documentary heritage to increase their longevity for posterity. He  said records are integral part of any organization. They are wheels of administration and proper records management ensures an efficient administration. Records management establishes standards of good management in respect of creation, control, preservation and disposition of records, he added.


Dr. Haque said like human memory records are the memory of governments without which no administration can be run and as such it is but natural that the DROs should understand the importance of their record holdings, which can help resolve many issues pending settlement or likely to arise in future.


He said the fundamental purpose of imparting this training in Orientation Course  in Records management for the DROs is basically to highlight not only its importance and utility but also to illustrate and imbibe this spirit of a true archivist or DRO through a series of lectures on various aspects of the Record Management by the learned speakers and faculty members who are well versed in this field .in order to clarify its intricacies.


K. L. Silawat and Syed Fareed Ahmad also spoke on the occasion. Dr. Sharma proposed vote of thanks while Juneja conducted the proceedings with aplomb.
