  • Managerial structure
  • Unique Supply chain logistic system

  • Accuracy

The event started with lamp lighting by the guests, Mr. Ritesh Andre and Mr. Raju Nathu Andre along with Dr. Rajeev Bhardwaj (Campus Director),Dr. Nikhil Kulshreshtha (DEAN Academics), and Dr. Rupak Gupta (Registrar) in the melody of beautiful SaraswatiVandana sung by Muskaan (student Mass comm department).

Further Prof. Ulka Tewari welcomed the guests, faculties, DBS students and also the students who attended the session from different universities like University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES), Dehradun, Uttaranchal University, Dehradun, Tula’s University, GRD-IMT institute etc.Thereafter,Campus Director Dr. Rajeev Bhardwajdeclared the event open, he also spoke about the case studies being formulated by various institutions and universities to research on the working procedure of the Mumbai Dabbawalas and the six-sigma success,which the Mumbai Dabbawalas have achieved to 99.99997% despite of many of their employees not being educated enough. Further Prof. Ulka introduced the speaker Mr. Ritesh Andre and invited him on stage to take all the students and faculties through the most interesting journey of 130 years of Mumbai Dabbawalas.

Mr. Ritesh Andre showed the students and faculties how and what is actually called working in a city like Mumbai. He interacted with the students and explained how the dabbawalas work and about their system to stay connected with each other and maintain proper coordination in assigning and executing the deliveries.

He said "The dabbawalas belong to Varkari community from Pune who highly believe in God and for them customers are their God" and also said that Mumbai local trains are the backbone of dabbawalas.He explained the routine of their work which is illustrated as follows: -


He also spoke about the unique alphabets written on the dabba which acts as a QR code for them. 20 years ago, when there was no coding system for dabbawalas, they used to have different colored clothes tied to the dabbas. Later, new ideas were generated. The colors of the coding changes according to the direction, and now in a completely technological driven era they also have their own unique system which works without using technology also keeping in mind the varied educational backgrounds of their employees.

Name of the pickup station: - VLP (Vile Parle)
Dabbawala name initial: - E
Destination: - (at the center) 3
Dabbawala 2nd after sorting: - 9 (code of dabbawalla)
Destination Building name initial: - EX
Floor to be delivered:- 12

The collection and distribution of the dabbas is illustrated below


For example, all the dabbas from the houses of Vile Parle are collected and brought to the Vile Parle station. And later the dabbas reach to the sorting station where all the 2 lakh dabbas are sorted and they go to the hands of other dabbawalas who takes it to the destination. Similarly this process is reversed and all in all single delivery of dabba includes about 3 dabbawalas. The charges for this are only 1500/- rupees per month.Theirsupply chain management is so strong that the chance of any error is just 1 in 6 million deliveries.

Dabbawalas are not registered under Companies act rather they are registered under the Bombay Trust Act 1882. Therefore, they are named as Nutan Mumbai tiffin box supplier trust. They also perform various Corporate Social Responsibility activitieslike, sharemydabba and once in a week the dabbawalas carry an extra dabba for the children left stranded and hungry at railway platforms. Also helping their people in every possible way during Mumbai floods and COVID situation.

In the discussion round answers were given in reference to the following questions/areas: -

  1. If they have Dabbawalis also in the system?
  2. How do they deliver food when local trains are not functional?
  3. Back up plan in case of any emergency.
  4. Expansion plan.
  5. Recruitment process.

Audience of DBS faculty and students listening DR M. Madhu, Director ICAR IISWC Dehradun on World Food Day October 15, 2022

Dr M. Madhu in his keynote address highlighted the role of agricultural scientists and farmers in increasing the farm production from 50 million tonnes to more than 300 million tonnes and making the country self-sufficient in food production. There were all round developments in different sectors of agriculture after independence ranging from cereals, pulses, oilseeds, sugarcane fruits, vegetables, milk, meat, eggs, cotton and other fibres, fisheries etc. He stressed the importance of conservation of water and soil for sustainable production in different agro ecological regions ranging from western ghats to north - east India and in arid zones of the country in the backdrop of climate change scenarios. Soil and water are the vital natural resources essential to sustain life which are most neglected and over exploited. This calls everyone to honour and respect the natural resources and their careful use for the prosperity and sustenance of the future generations.

Judicious management of natural resources through highly effective soil and water conservation technologies and participatory watershed management is of paramount importance for sustaining various ecosystem services and achieving targets of various Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving the land degradation neutrality. Loss of top soil, shrinking water resources and the expanse of degraded lands in the country has serious consequences on country’s food security and environmental quality. Soil being a non-renewable resource and the basis for 97% of all food production, strategies to prevent soil depletion are critical for sustainable food production and exhorted everyone to take pledge to conserve water and soil for better future of the mankind.
