As our Chamber enters into 25th year of its journey, I consider it my privilege to be writing this message to our esteemed members. Silver Jubilee of any organisation is indeed a mile stone which we all must cherish. When I look back at our journey of 25 years, I feel proud that from our humble beginning as a small Association in 1994, we have come a long way. I shall be failing in my duty if I don’t express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all current and past members of Executive Committee, various sub Committees as well as every person who contributed in this journey of the Chamber. We would have not been here without their contribution.
Our task for next five years is cut out. We have to double our membership, increase the number of training programmes/ seminar/ workshops, make the sub committees more vibrant and play a meaningful role to provide value to our members. We are committed to take this Chamber to new heights in times to come and make our presence felt in more geographical areas around Industrial Belt of Pune. In a decade from now, your Chamber aims to be a state level organisations.
While placing on record my sincere appreciation for the support which you have always provided to Chamber, I would also like to request each and every member to increase their level of interaction with Chamber by sending participants in the various events/activities of Chamber and also suggest the areas where you expect your Chamber to venture in. I look forward to your support.
Wishing you all a Happy festive season ahead.

This is a significant year for DCCIA as we complete 25 years on 6th June 2019. As I look back at our journey from being a small Association to a Chamber of Commerce, with a reasonable presence in this Industrial belt, while I have a sense of satisfaction, I also feel that we could have done little more to position DCCIA at state/national level. May be, this will be our goal in next one / two decades.
As you may be aware that in this silver jubilee year of DCCIA, your Chamber is launching a mega event i.e “Winter Games” which will help in not only promoting the games like Kabaddi, Kho-Kho and Tug of war but will also provide an opportunity for member industries to interact and develop a sense comraderie and bonding. I appeal all of you to whole heartedly support this initiative by participating in large numbers.
We are also taking steps to strengthen various sub committees including adding few more sub committees. I need your support in this area as well. Please do nominate senior members of your team to be a part of these sub committees and spare them for meetings and other activities.
Before, I conclude I would like to share with you that a delegation of Executive members and their respective spouses visited Nagaland in first week of December, at the invitation of Hon Governor Shri PB Acharya, and attended “Hornbill Festival” commemorating The statehood day of Nagaland. It was a learning experience for all of us.
