DPA holds its Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of Delhi Printers’ Association was recently held at Malviya Smriti Bhawan. Welcoming the members to the AGM President Sunil Jain expressed his gratitude to them for reposing their faith in him by giving him another term as President for the year 2021-2022 and also for extending their full cooperation and support. He stated that DPA had participated in the first formal meeting organised by Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructural Corporation wherein an opportunity to acquire land for a cluster of printing units was made available to DPA. Before attending the second meeting of HSIIDC he wanted to discuss the matter with interested member printers and assess their requirement of the cluster land. Further, Jain told that in order to seek relief for printers in the smooth availability of printing plates, former President Deepak Arora had arranged a meeting with the supplier of Kapoor Imaging, at DPA office recently where fruitful discussions in this important matter were held and soon their offer would be sent to the members..
While, Hon. General Secretary Atul Goel presented his Annual Report for the outgoing year. The Treasurer Prakash Dass presented the Statement of Annual Accounts for the preceding 2020-2021 period.
Taking up the last item of agenda Deteriorating Condition of DPA’s Printers Bhawan at Naraina, senior former President Vijay Mohan stated that the outer boundary wall of Printers Bhawan is deteriorating and has since been posing a grave danger to neighbouring buildings also. The members agreed that that DPA will sign a necessary legal document with a known and reliable builder who will construct a strong building, as per approved map or plan, on DPA’s land.
After completion of the agenda of AGM some members raised the burning issue of skyrocketing hikes in rates of almost all inputs and raw materials of printing and packaging trade. The GC members were of the view that in the present scenario printers cannot survive unless they also hike their printing and packaging rates proportionately. Cut-throat competition among printers should stop and they must learn to say ‘No’ to their customers who threaten to go to some other printer.
Returning Officer Raj Kumar Arya and Co-Returning Officer Mukesh Kaushik for DPA’s annual election for 2022-2023 announced the unanimously elected new team for 2022-2023.
