Jaiveer Srivastava, CMD, Hindustan Prefab Limited (HPL) has been awarded "Bottom of
the pyramid Award" at the Global HR Excellence Awards 2011 ceremony recently held at
Mumbai. This award was conferred on Srivastava by Bhaskar Chatterjee, Secretary to the
Government of India, Department of Public Enterprises, during World HRD Congress 2011.
Jaiveer is a Civil Engineering graduate (77’) from BITS Pilani.
Under the exemplary leadership of Jaiveer Srivastava, HPL has taken up challenging
projects and completed them in stipulated time irrespective of the extreme conditions and
hardships, hurdles and other organizational pressures. Their recent project is an example
of the remarkable work done in a short span of 85 days by constructing 440 prefab houses
for the affected people of Leh-Ladakh (J&K) in 26 locations after the cloud burst of August
2010. His passion and enthusiasm, clarity of vision, strong determination and personal charm
as the CMD left the staff at HPL a changed lot. Impervious to the external conditions, he
always continued with his mantra of ‘If it has to be done, it will be done. There is no going
back, only going forward!’
“We are one company; he has made us see that. We are proud to be representatives of such
an organization, energized by our Chief. HPL will regain all its past glory and we shall make
sure we are a part of that resurrection”- one of the directors of HPL.
BITSAA congratulates Jaiveer on his achievement!
Hindustan Prefab Limited (HPL) was incorporated in 1953. It was earlier founded as Hindustan Housing Factory Ltd., which was set up at the behest of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru,
the first Prime Minister of India for solving the housing problem created due to influx of
refugees from West Pakistan. As years rolled by, the company came to be known as HPL, the
change in name being necessitated by diversification of its operations. HPL thus became a
fully integrated company with modern prefabrication facilities and a railway siding of its own
in the heart of Delhi to undertake faster and challenging jobs in the country.
