The Techno E- media Group is part of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation. This is an All India based group with active participation from all states of the country. The Technology group known by this short name was initiated by the All India President Sri V.Srinivasan and blessed by our beloved Bhagawan on the 17th of February 2004.

On the Maha Shivaratri festival day Sri H.Srinivasulu the then District President of Hyderabad was nominated as the All India Technology group coordinator by the consent of Dr.N.Anjanaiah the then State President of Andhra Pradesh.

Incidentally by shear providence Bhagawan willed this programme just three years before the launch of the SSSSVIP declaration on the Ugadi day. This made the Technology group prepare and be ready with consolidated projects for the SSSSVIP needs. The Technology group is a kind of a knowledge transfer bridge between the need and the knowledge source center.

THE PRINCIPLE OBJECTIVE OF THE TECHNOLOGY GROUP

1. To provide, deliver and implement simple, effective, affordable, cost effective, operable, manageable and self reliant Techno Solutions at the village locations. This is to alleviate various difficulties faced by the poor village folks who have no means to have their normal needs of drinking water, sanitation and agro support fulfilled.
2. This is also to elevate and enhance the quality of life and living standards of the poor folks who are at far off remote places and have no reach to the modern techno solutions benefit in terms contacts, knowledge or financial ability.
3. The Techno group has pooled two or three expert members from each state in the country and nominated about 60 members. They are knowledgeable in various subjects such as from Agriculture-Bio technology-computers-Construction-drinking water-electrical mini power-ground water-Health and Hygiene-Sanitation-Solar lighting-Veterinary-Organic farming etc.
4. So nominated members meet at Prashanthinilayam a day before-Shivaratri-Gurupoornima and Bhagawan’s birth day and deliberate on various subject matters presented by members. Thereafter they will be interacting with each other and arrive at appropriate solution. Then the approved projects are put in for implementation in identified villages around the country.
5. TG Members are in constant contact with SSSVIP members who identify and seek the Techno group assistance in providing effective solutions as per the subject matter.
6.TG members are also constantly in search of newer techno solutions by seeking information from a variety of sources such as news papers, magazines ,libraries, research centers, web sites, professionals, national laboratories and manufacturers. These ideas are translated in to workable projects.
7. The Techno group has a web site: www.srisathyasaitech.in all relevant valuable information is published here for the benefit of all interested and concerned. The Technology group publication on Technology for service that was released in two volumes is uploaded here. It also publishes a News & Views letter and proceedings Memorandum soon after a meeting.
8. Any SSSSO member with techno interest, knowledge, commitment and a will to contribute to the growth of TG is welcome by way of registration with the approval of the concerned State President.
8. Currently the priorities are Provision of pure and safe drinking water plants-Provision of sanitary toilets-Affordable agro services-Solar lighting systems etc in addition to any other techno need.

Drinking water facilities establishment- management-Audit facility

In the current expansion of our activity, with reference to set up of drinking water purification systems in villages it is

important that we need to set up a pre and post audit programme as well. This will ensure smooth working of the facilities established by the organization on a long term approach.

The following strategies would support such objectives and therefore all concerned should adhere to these norms for mutual benefit and responsibilities associated for the good and name of the organization.

In the absence of such norms and standards-there is every likely hood of breakdown and total shutdown and therefore-we should not venture to establishing our service projects of such nature. It is better not to do than do and suffer failure.

1. The equipment selected for the purification of raw-feed water must be from a reliable-proven-renowned-operating cost effective supply with an annual maintenance contract arrangement in place.

2. The equipment supplier must have facility to depute their maintenance engineer-technician to the established facility within 24 hours of the demand.

3. The equipment supplier must have enough stock of spares associated with the supplied equipment. The facility alsomust keep stocks to last at least a year.Remember that once the village folks get used to pure-safe and clean drinking water-any stoppage for a day could be disastrous for them and they cannot stand.

4. Recognise that there are quite a number of equipment suppliers for the same process need and offer good and attractive incentives in plant cost. They alsomeet the output specifications as well. But not all will come to the rescue in case of an emergency replacement or repair or would like to take the responsi bility of working. While overall cost is a very important- but the quality-service and reliability for the future need is of priority.

5. The All India Technology group that has initiated this support programme has enormous exposure and experience in selecting and evaluating the merits of suppliers. Therefore all concerned members of the organization dealing in the establishment of these facilities or any technical facility are directed and requested to consult the All India Technology group in making such decisions.

As we are establishing these services in the name of the Organizations-we must make sure that we do things in right earnest with a long term cost benefit and performance analysis basis.

6. We must recognize that even a small arrangement like fixing a storage tank-pump and pipe line has some technical parameters and norms/standards involved. Therefore we need to establish with highest level of standards as we are doing it on behalf of the organization in the name of Bhagawan.Therefore it has got have the stamp of authority on our works.

7. In the matter of facilities for establishment-it is important that we need to standardize the sizes and auxiliaries installed

a) The size of the room should never be less than 14x12x10 feet. The roof of the building should be in RCC and never an asbestos sheet or zinc sheet.

b) The out put tank must always be inside the room with not too much of sun light exposure.

c) The all round working space around the plant must be at least 30 inches.

d) A electrical meter-fire extinguisher-first aid box-safety chart-list of personal for contact in case of an emergency must be fixed and displayed inside the room. Never allow or encourage unauthorized tapping connection from the main line circuits for any of our facilities.

All ways obtain permission and inform the collector or RDO concerned about our establishing the facility in the village.

e) Both flooring and foundations of the tanks and machinery-the walls inside the room up to 3 feet must be tiled appropriately with a light brown/maroon cloured tiles. This would ensure clean and healthy appearance of the plant for years together.

f) Further plant outside and inside must be coated with pink and blue combination colors as in all our Organization building features and norms.

g) On top sides of the building we must inscribe" SRI SATHYA SAI MANCHI NEETI MANDIRAM" in the regional language with the organization emblem on top or side. The title could also be like-SRI SATHYA SAI PREMAMRUTHA DHAARA MANCHI NEETI MANDIRAM" as per the current context

h) The feed tank can be mounted on an outside foundation pedestal or on top of the plant building based on the structural bearing capacity in consultation with a civil engineer.

i) The Jerry can filling station should be outside the building appropriately tiled with in a spacing of 6x5 feet with three or four taps.

j) In case the building facility is provided by the village in an existing location-we need to examine and make some modification to facilitate our installation to the best of the standards established.

Procedures and standards for audit teams

1. We have to make it clear that all established facilities are installed by the organization teams and handed over to the village water committee for them to run. We have no relationship in management of the routine or financial management handling. This has to be the responsibility of the water committee so nomin ated by the village.

2. How ever the SSSSO members shall visit the facility-every three months to make sure that the facility is in good operating condition technically and the output of the plant is maximum and utilized for the benefit of the concerned village

3. Threfore it is important that at least two designated knowledgeable persons form the organization are selected/ nominated to compulsorily visit the plant once in every three months or earlier as required.

4. These members must be from the district where the plant is established and running. They must report to the District President concerned and the SSSVIP coordinator incase. This should be within the knowledge of the State President as well.

5. What are the responsibilities and purview of the audit members?

a) Must ensure the upkeep and cleanliness in around the plant.

b) Check the plant operating register to see whether the inlet and out let pressures of the plant are as in original start up condition or is there any deviation. If there is a deviation it indicates that the membranes are getting choked up with contaminates and so requires clean up or replacements.

c) Check whether the 10 micro/5 micro cartridges are replaced at regular intervals-if this is not done the output will fall down quickly. The quality of output water also declines.

d) Check whether the facility has enough stock of cartridges for replacement periodically. If not make them place an order for some stock

e) Check the feed water and output water TDS and fluoride levels-The output water must have a TDS level of 100 ppm and below and the fluoride level less than I ppm

f) Check the consumption levels of output water-this must match the village population levels-For example if the village has 300 homes-the output consum ption must be 3600 liters per day at the rate of 12 liters of water for every home per day. If this falls below 75% of the population-There is viability danger and the water committee members and the village folks should be warned of under utilization.

Our SSSVIP or organization teams must go to the village to motivate and encourage utilization of this plant facility. Must conduct house to house visit if need be!

g) The Audit teams must check the cash register of receipts and expenditure and bank account and make sure that it is balanced and no money is taken out for any purpose other than for paying the electricity bill-operator salary and for spares and maintenance in a authorized manner.

h) The audit team must ensure that excess funds so accumulated after meeting the expenses over a year must be diverted to making a fixed deposit in the name of the village water sangham.

i) The audit team must make a report of its finding and submit it to the village management team and the District president of the organization concerned for suitable directions and corrective action.

j) The audit team must communicate the technical needs and corrections to the concerned equipment supplier for rectification wherever needed.
