Govind Singh Bhardwaj
Govind Singh Bhardwaj
Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, India

Dr Govind Singh Bhardwaj is contributing the society by his Nature-friendly, Geo-friendly and Geo-social approaches for problem solving and constructive purposes in applied and basic research in his field. His creative and innovative ideas & inputs of expertise are certainly a landmark contribution towards safe guard the mother earth and society, using different tools available in the field of Geo-science, Engineering Geology, and Geo-technology, GIS & Remote sensing and environmental conservation. He has put forward a new concept of the Geo-social Development and it has been appreciated by the international gathering during the international workshop organized in the field. He has given his technical delivery with the objectivity for betterment, improvement, optimization of infrastructural developmental activities in sustainable way. By his sincere efforts the Indian mineral industry benefitted as getting growth direction towards Geo-friendly Mining and further realized by productivity enhancement and improvement in quality of life by conservational and environmental protection in the field. Also the civil engineering construction and environmental protection took a boost in the field of highways, four and six lanes road net working in hilly areas. His efforts in geo-technical assessment of existing and proposed road network in hilly areas of Aravalli Mountains are of immense value.

 His work reflects as better utilization of the geotechnical knowledge for the innovations in mineral excavation techniques, mineral conservation and mining environment sector by improving the open pit mining environment by stability measures, improving workers motivation for stress free work environment, under safe conditions. This could be assessed in terms of improvement in the productivity & working efficiency. The nominee has contributed in the field of excavation & quarrying for dimensional stone i.e. marble, flaggy limestone, sandstone, granite; industrial minerals like soapstone, feldspar, quartz and huge excavations for four lane road network development in Aravalli Mountain. His creative involvement in the research project sponsored by the Man and Biosphere Division, Ministry of Environment and Forest, Department of Science and Technology, GOI India New Delhi, in the year 1987-89, where he has carried out environmental geological investigation of the Udaipur basin i.e. industrial clusters, where 80% industries are mineral based. Industrial effluent disposal of liquid, solid and gaseous material locations or sites were analyzed on the basis of structural planar features, its frequency in the subsurface and contaminations spreading in the area. On the basis of his research report as a key researcher in the team, the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has given judgment verdict to close pollution causing industries and the residents of nearby villages’ remedies by further contamination of groundwater, fertile farm land and cattle grazing land. The findings were duly recognized by the government of India and the project was awarded excellent. His technical report regarding marble slurry yard born problems in ChitrakootNagar Housing Area of Udaipur, is taken as a base report by the National Human Right Commission, Delhi, India and Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, given direction to Rajasthan state authorities to shift the yard and not to dump marble slurry at the place, which is technically not advisable.

Nominees’ sincere contribution in the form of industry-institute interaction by providing valuable consultancy / advice to different mineral based/ mining industry and construction industry is really appreciable. CSR part if we look worthwhile to quote as an exemplary at the critical time of shortage of water to supply for drinking purposes & in the situation of depleting surface water and even groundwater, the groundwater water exploitation become only alternate before the society and by his efforts i.e. geo-electrical resistivity survey, a number of successful water supply bore wells have been located in different areas of the Rajasthan state during drought of 2003. Also his efforts has helped a lot to check usual puncturing ground unknowingly & unwanted dry bore wells drilling and located productive wells. This may be referred as a contribution towards management, conservation, mitigation, optimization and sustainable development of mine-hydro-geo-environmental regimes. Numerical analysis related to failure risk analysis and stability of existing and under construction motorways twin tunnels developmental activities in the Aravalli Mountain Highways using various software tools also a contribution for the future assignments in the field. He has exposure of slope stability analysis software Galena, FE, Matt lab, Flagylist, Flac 3D, GIS software TNTmips and Arc GIS, Rockware, DIPS etc. and university has appointed as Nodal Officer for GIS survey and data base preparation across state of Rajasthan.

Nominee is a team member of Mo U signed with Centre for Development of Stones (CDOS), Jaipur and Department of Mining Engineering, MPUAT, Udaipur in the year 2006 to carry out R& D, Training courses and development of “Stone Test House” at CDOS, Jaipur, prepared stone test reports as per European standards for the benefit of stone sector industries of the country is continuing till date. Nominee is active fellow and member of the various prestigious professional societies like The Fellow & Life member of the Geological Society of India, Bangalore since 1984, Life Member of the Mining Geological and Metallurgical Institute of India, Kolkota, Life Member of The Mining Engineers Association of India, Founder Member of the Geoscientists Society of Rajasthan. He has organized scientific lectures time to time like Earth day, World Environment Day, World Water Day etc. celebrations for the awareness and motivation among beginners as well as seniors, also contributed for the society. As an Editor in Chief of the Geoscientists Society in the year 2010, he has published International Journal of Geo-science and Environment. He is reviewer and member editorial board in several international journals of repute. He has travelled abroad for participating and presenting his research papers in the international conferences and symposia, time to time.

Nominee has co-authored a popular and unique book titled Dimensional Stone Technology published in the year 2000. The book is the only reference literature for small scale mining of the stone sector in India and several other countries as well. He has recently published “Mining Geology Laboratory Manual Book” printed by the Maharana Pratap University of Agriculture and Technology, Udaipur, Rajasthan stands first mining geology manual book published in the country. The book is welcomed by several mining colleges & research institutes in India and abroad. Most downloaded e-Book chapter on the aspect “Geo-Social Aspects of Developments in Peri-urban Regions” with DOI: 10.1007/978-94-017-8878-6_3 contributed in the famous book - The Security of Water, Food, Energy and Liveability of Cities, Challenges and Opportunities for Peri-Urban Futures, Springer -Water Science and Technology Library 71, is an landmark new concept as the geo-social dynamics of assimilation of rural-urban spatial fringe.
