Speaking on the occasion, the Director General emphasized for active involvement in the decision making process from the actual “BOOTS ON THE GROUND”. He further mentioned that valuable suggestions/points from the Inaugural edition of SO conclave held in 2016 have been implemented and expressed hope that this edition would see more such “OUT of BOX” and innovative ideas.
