  • 1. Organised a short course sponsored by Deptt. Of Science & Technology, New Delhi on `Landslide analysis and control' between April 5 and 10, 1994. 2. Organised a `Group Discussion for monitoring of projects related to landslides sponsored by DST, Govt. of India' between June 17 & 19, 1995. 3. Organised a three day Workshop on `Design practices in Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering' Sponsored Indian Geotechnical Society between September 26 & 28, 1996. 4. Organised a three day workshop on `Role of Policy Makers in Landslide Hazard Management’‘ under the sponsorship DST, New Delhi between April 24 & 26, 1998. 5. Organised a two day workshop on `Landslides due to construction of hills’ sponsored by I.G.S. Roorkee Chapter on September 21 - 22, 1998. 6. Organised a training course on Landslide Analysis & Control’ from Dec, 8 to 12, 2003 sponsored by DST, Govt. of India, New Delhi , Introduced Four new courses related to Engineering Geology in PG level, Based on the technique developed by self the following BIS codes were developed a) I.S Code on Slope Mass rating (SMR) for rock cut slopes - IS 13365 (Part 3) 1997 b) I.S. Code on Landslide Hazard Zonation (LHZ) Mapping - IS 14496 (Part-2):1998 , Chairman of Bureau of Indian Standards, CED - 56 related to Hill Area Development, 1.
