11.3 Project Controls
Need was felt in recent years for an efficient Project Control System which wouldmonitor Project Schedule Performance effectively within Budgeted / Approved CostParameters wherein the Planning / Scheduling and Cost Control functions need to beinterlinked and monitored through a common control. With this vision the Functions ofPlanning / Scheduling and Cost Control were combined under a single umbrella and RsProject Controls Division' was formed in July 2019 under Project Directorate. The ProjectControl Specialists who have knowledge of both Planning / Scheduling and Cost Controlfunctions are able to identify and manage potential variations from the budget andschedule by integrating the two and hence will be able to exercise better control as wellas take timely corrective action as necessary. This would help further to create arobust pool of Multi-Skilled Project Control Specialists who can switch roles based onwork demand.
With the above vision of Integrated Project Controls in focus a leadership line hasbeen identified from amongst senior level multiskilled Planning and Cost Engineers holdingdual work experience. Deployments have been made in Rs Project Controls' roles whichstarted showing desired results. Management Reports on Project Controls are being rolledout combining both Schedule and Cost status and impacts on Project establishing theirlinks for necessary interventions. Budding Engineers are being trained by cross-functionaldeployment for multi-skilled grooming.
Besides monitoring of Project Schedule and Cost Parameter Project Controls also dealswith the change management devising strategies to remove the roadblocks causing Time andCost Overruns analysis and monitoring of Project Time and Cost Forecasts RiskManagement etc.
Over and above the umbrella Rs Project Controls' functions as routine services Rs CostEngineering' continues to be engaged in preparation of Capital Cost Estimates andFinancial/ Economic Analysis for diverse activities ranging from Technology Selection topreparation of Feasibility Reports (DRF and PFR) and Option Study Estimates for InvestmentDecisions pertaining to Projects handled by EIL in various Industry Segments. CostEngineering also provides Cost Estimates for Procurement Tendering and Assistance inPrice Negotiations.
The Rs Planning and Scheduling' Department provides Planning Scheduling MonitoringRisk Management and Material Control Services to various Projects using state of the arttools and database. The Department also provides Project Monitoring Services to theMinistry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. During the current year 20192020 web based ProjectMonitoring Software with Dashboard (called MMC Dashboard) was implemented for theMinistry. This has not only changed the gamut of Project Monitoring Capabilities but alsomade available to the Stakeholders the Key Project Information sector wise state wiseperiod wise time and cost overrun details etc. at a click of the button. Dashboard basedMonitoring System has improved the efficiency of Planning Professionals in monitoring ofthe project data storage retrieval and handling of crucial project information. The MMCDashboard System has been widely appreciated and adopted by the MoP&NG as well as allthe Oil and Gas CPSEs' Management.

21. Make In India - Atmanirbhar Bharat - EIL's Perspective
EIL has been continuously engaged in the process of creating an ecosystem conducive tothe growth of Indian industry promoting import substitution and self-reliance under theaegis of Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas. This has been a continuous process eversince EIL's inception in 1965. EIL has been in the forefront of development of theengineering industry in India.
The indigenous component in the capital goods industry catering to the refinery segmentwas about 10-15% in late seventies/ early eighties. This rose to the current level of85-90%. Similarly in the petrochemical and gas processing sector the indigenouscomponent has grown from almost negligible to close to 60%. This has been the power ofEIL's contribution to the indigenization efforts of the Government of India.
The Make In India campaign launched by our Hon'ble Prime Minister has added much neededboost to the economic growth of the country. As part of this various initiatives arebeing taken by EIL. One such initiative is encouragement to indigenous manufacturers toenhance their product portfolio and manufacturing capabilities and capacity incollaboration with their foreign principals. This will ensure that critical technologyflows into India and helps indigenization of the same.
In addition to the ongoing indigenization efforts underway in EIL in order to give afurther boost to indigenization of state-of-the-art technologies in the year 2016 EILintroduced a policy encouraging wholly owned (100%) subsidiaries of foreign companies toavail the benefits of the policy in case of selective capital goods and technologies whereIndia had limited number of manufacturers and there was tremendous scope for technologyup-gradation. Subsequently after analyzing the experience gained in order to alsoencourage companies where indigenous holding was upto 49% in January 2017 this policywas extended to such companies also. This had a dual purpose of sustaining the interest offoreign company by its having control over the company and secondly increasing theindigenization thereby creating employment opportunities.
India now is at the cusp of taking off onto greater heights of excellence and globalacceptance. At this juncture to carry forward the campaign of Make In India and growth ofIndian Industry we have introduced certain new policies in our Vendors Enlistment Systemin sectors where only one or two players exist even manufacturers without PTR wereallowed to develop prototypes with handholding by EIL. They were considered qualifiedbased on the successful development & testing of a prototype meeting the stipulatedtechnical specifications as well as capability and capacity of the plant being upgraded tomeet the requisite standards.
These policies have been welcomed and are acting as a catalyst for the growth of IndianIndustry thereby fulfilling the aspirations of the Indian youth by providing them withemployment opportunities in the process ensuring economic growth.
