Prof. Baldev Setia, Director-PEC, extended a very warm welcome to the Chief Guest for gracing the event with his presence. He also expressed his gratitude towards all the illustrious alumni of PEC, present for the Global meet. He stated that the occasion assumes significance as it is taking place after a Gap of three years. Talking about the significance of PECOSA, he stated that active engagement and support, whether it be through mentoring current students or supporting the institution with donations and scholarships, PECOSA’s support is immensely valuable to PEC.

As a part of the event, PECOSA Souvenir 2023 was also released. At this Grand event batches which have completed 15, 25, 35, 50 & 60 years i.e. a batch of 2006, 07, 08, 1996, 97, 98, 1986, 87, 88, 1971, 72 73, 1961,62, 63 were also felicitated by the Chief Guest Shri Dharam Pal. More than 500 guests were present at the global alumni meet from various parts of the country and globally. The program continued with alumni participating in fun activities like Kite Flying, Tambola & Musical Chairs followed by lunch and interaction at the PEC Campus. The fun-filled day of nostalgia was followed by a musical evening with live singers and a lavish Dinner, which provided a warm and conducive environment for PEC-Alumni to share their stories and experiences at PEC and in the professional sphere of life.
