It is on record that Printing and Packaging is the second largest industry in India but our printers are not in the know of the latest developments taking place these days in our trade. Almost all the units, being located in different places, are working independently of each other, rather in isolation and do not have a common platform to discuss various problems being faced by them. Looking at the present scenario, the main thrust of the Association is to transform the printing industry in the State into an organized sector so that it is in a position to face all the challenges effectively & efficiently. The names, occupation and addresses of the first Office-Bearers of the Association to whom the management of the affairs of the Association was entrusted are as under :
