2006 - Sudeep Jain

Posted By Vivek Iyer, Tuesday, September 30, 2008
Sudeep Jain

Sudeep Jain, BITS alumnus and IAS Officer from 1994, was awarded the distinguished alumnus award for his achievements in afforestation and his visionary initiatives while he served as the Collector of Nagapattinam, Dharmapuri and as the Chairman of ELCOT.

As district collector he oversaw the planting of some 100,000 saplings in a single day. This earned him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. These saplings not only had a beneficial effect on the environment, but also had a hand in the relatively low number of tsunami casualties in these villages.

Some years later, when tsunami stuck, he quickly rallied BITSians and launched BITSunami - BITSAA's relief and rehabilitation initiative in Nagapattinam .
