Professional Experience:
FDRVC – Senior Manager
Leading a multidisciplinary team at FDRVC, I spearheaded the operationalization of Farmer Producer Companies (FPCs) across five states in North East India. Ensuring close coordination with State Rural Livelihood Missions and the Ministry of Rural Development, I facilitated institution development efforts and developed strategic business plans. My expertise in procurement and supply chain management led to successful handling of recruitment, equipment purchase, and compliance for large-scale FPCs, resulting in annual procurements exceeding INR 3Cr+. Additionally, I established over 50 micro-warehouses, mobilizing 2500+ farmers and contributing significantly to rural livelihoods.

FDRVC – Manager
In this role, I developed business plans and budgetary components for large-scale producer enterprises promoted under the Ministry of Rural Development. Conducting extensive field visits across North East India and West Bengal, I gained insights into diverse demographies and cultures, informing inclusive FPC business strategies. Furthermore, I developed livelihood-generating projects across six states, raising funds worth INR 50 Cr+ from various government schemes.

Sambhav Foundation - A Labournet Initiative
As part of a core team, I played a pivotal role in launching business verticals and developing entrepreneurship modules for scalable replication. Additionally, I led sales and business development efforts, securing Skill-based CSR projects worth INR 3Cr+ and reconceptualizing CSR projects for large corporates like HUL, JPMC, CEAT, and Godrej.

Administering a diverse portfolio of 500+ customers, I managed a cumulative net worth of INR 65Cr, achieving a remarkable 43% Year-over-Year portfolio growth. Additionally, I spearheaded the negotiation of competitive remittance rates and secured corporate salary accounts from seven prominent MNCs, contributing significantly to branch profitability and customer satisfaction.
My educational journey reflects a commitment to academic excellence and a diverse exploration of fields crucial to my professional growth. I commenced this journey with a specialization in Agri Business Management from the prestigious Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow. Here, I delved into agricultural economics, rural development, and business strategy, honing my analytical skills and strategic mindset.

Building upon this foundation, I pursued a degree in Mechanical Engineering from BE College Shibpur. This phase of my education provided me with a deep understanding of engineering principles, coupled with hands-on experience through practical projects and internships. The rigorous curriculum challenged me to think critically and solve complex problems, fostering a strong analytical mindset.

My academic odyssey culminated with secondary and higher secondary education at Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya Narendrapur, a renowned residential school in West Bengal. Over eight enriching years, I not only received a robust academic education but also imbibed invaluable life lessons in leadership, discipline, and community service.

Throughout my educational journey, I have strived for excellence, embraced challenges, and seized every opportunity for growth and learning. This diverse educational background, coupled with hands-on experiences and extracurricular pursuits, has equipped me with a unique blend of technical expertise, managerial acumen, and a deep understanding of rural development issues. As I embark on the next chapter of my career, I am confident that my education will continue to serve as a strong foundation for success and make meaningful contributions to society.
