In the year 1994, on the 6th of June, a group of industrialists, owning units on Pune-Nagar road, assembled over high tea at Milton Plastics ltd, at the invitation of its Director, Mr. Yogesh Vaghani and Mr. V.L Malu of Hitech Plast Containers India Ltd. The idea was to form a common platform for the industries located on Pune-Nagar Road, to address the problem faced by them. The response was overwhelming with 45 out if 55 invitees responding to idea. This was foundation day for “Nagar Road Industries Association”. An ad HOC committee was formed under the chairmanship of Mr.Yogesh Vaghani, the other member being Mr. Surinder Aggarwal, Mr Omprakash Agarwal, Cdr A.V. Ghole (Retd), Mr. Sanjay Ajmera and Mr.V.L. Malu. A small get together over high tea thus transformed into Deccan Chamber Of Commerce Industries and Agriculture Association.
There was no looking back for Nagar Road Industries Association, ‘NRIA’, as it was then known. The membership grew from 10 to 200+ within 24 year. Initially, the membership was restricted to industries located at Sanaswadi, Shikrapur and Koregaon Bhima on Pune Nagar Road. Later the member was extended to Shirur, Ranjangaon MIDC, Chakan Industries, Pimpari Chinchwad, Talegaon Industries Area. Many large Industries located in the newly formed MIDC at Ranjangaon quickly became members.
In order to truly reflect the work being done under the umbrella of Nagar Road Industries Association (NRIA) and to augment further growth, the association converted into “Nagar Road Industries Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture” (NRICCA), a body corporate, registered under the Companies Act 1956 in August 2004. Subsequently, to open membership to industries Located in different parts of Pune and Maharashtra, the chamber was renamed as “Deccan Chamber Of Commerce Industries and Agriculture Pune” (DCCIA Pune for Short) and operating as such w.e.f. 1.April .2009.
