The subject was discussed at length and TSEWA NEC accepted the proposal for opening pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Mrs Rekha Sekhri was requested to help Mr. Anand, office Manager to create the above accounts and regularly post good stories to cover the activities of TSEWA.

TSEWA Chief Mentor Brig CS Vidyasagar suggested that we create YouTube videos on ESM matters so that ESM can be informed about latest developments regarding pensions etc and also about various welfare activities being carried out by the TSEWA. Once TSEWA videos are seen by more and more people it can generate some income also.
