From the President's Desk


A new Managing Committee assumed office on 1st July at the Annual General Meeting and I welcome them all. We all will jointly ensure that DMAI’s commitment to serve its members and the Colorants industry is continued with the same zeal, vigour and vision that our Association has always held.

So we are on to start with this New Year, the 67th year of DMAI.

There are many activities planned this year. Firstly we are submitting our Budget Proposals to the Finance Minister. There are customary industry views on some changes and improvements to support exports.

We will be hosting the 7th Convention on Colorants (COC), jointly with Department of Dyestuff Technology, Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT, Mumbai), to be held at Mumbai on 9th & 10th February 2017. We are expecting support from the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India, as has been the case in all our endeavours. We are all sincerely working towards mobilizing resources to make this a grand success. We look forward to all our members for better participation and financial support.

Association has sent a circular on the Half Yearly Meeting at Puducherry (Pondicherry) from 12th to 15th January 2017. It builds up “bonhomie” amongst the members, I request you to enthusiastically register for the same and join.

We have Dussehra and Diwali round the corner. We are all getting into festive mood. I wish all of you, and your families, a very happy Dussehra with greetings for the Diwali festivities. Have a great time and a prosperous year ahead.

Jitendra Patel
