Sri. Gireesh, SDE and  Sri Pradeep JTO were  deputed for 3G integration works at Lakshadweep islands. The duo completed first part during the month of October -17, while the second part was planned for 1st week of December-17. 


The cyclone warning came when Ship was en-route to Agati and other two islands after that. The journey was short closed and ship returned from Agati without even waiting to deliver goods, food supply meant for Agati Island.


Despite the Cyclone weather conditions and consequent damages,  the duo were successful in integrating 3G at Agathi,  Androth and Kalpeni islands. Their extra efforts to service restoration at Minicoy island by re-installing the fallen mast and transmission equipments that too with limited work strength was really appreciable.

The team returned to the main land on 18-12-2017 after the service restoration.


Aigetoa Kerala express it's proud and hearty congrats to our dear President on behalf of all members.
