The formation of this Association was initiated by Late K.P. Kelu and S/Shri. P.P. Damu, K.S. Menon and Bharathan Manari in the year 2014 to address the common objectives of retired employees of Department of Atomic Energy residing in North Kerala. Many informal meetings were held and finally gave shape to “Department of Atomic Energy Pensioners’ Association–North Kerala” (DAEPANK), with Kozhikode as the headquarters, and registered the same on 6th January 2015 with Registrar of Societies. We held several joint meetings with representatives of Department of Space (DOS) / Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) retired employees to address common issues such as health, pension, welfare, etc.
