NITMA announces changes in leadership team
S anjay K Jain, Managing Director, TT Limited, was elected as President of Northern India Textile Mills’ Association (NITMA), the apex body of textile industry in North India. NITMA elected its new leadership team in its AGM held on July 15, 2016 at New Delhi. Rajiv Garg, MD of Garg Acrylics was elected as Sr VP and Manish Bagrodia was elected as Vice President. Hardyal Singh Cheema, the outgoing president, handed over the baton to the new team. NITMA was established in 1958 and has been since continuously serving the best interest of textile units in northern India and has been instrumental in creating a linkage between the industry and Government. Apart from providing critical inputs in policy making, it plays a very instrumental part in guiding the industry in all critical matters, dissemination of information and organising trade fairs and seminars. It also provides a bridge between the supporting industries (who are associate members of NITMA) and the industry.
Its members collectively have a turnover upward of Rs 50,000 crore.
Naishadh Parikh, Chairman of CITI and chief guest for the AGM and past NITMA Presidents congratulated the newly elected team of NITMA and imposed full confidence in the team to be able to take the industry forward in these challenging but interesting times. During the meeting, he also appealed to all textile associations in India, including NITMA to come together with a holistic approach and always work for complete value chain in textiles.
