From the Desk of President
Let me take this opportunity to express
to you my heartiest thanks. On 18 November 2008, you
elected me as President of our illustrious Bulk Drug
& Allied Dealers Association for the three-year
term of 2008-2009, 2009-2010 and 2010-2011.
During these past four months since the election, our
Association has taken up a
number of issues, including arbitration (that is, settlement
of issues between Fellow members
as well as between Members and non-members) concerning
our market. We have seen inflationary trends and we
are now dealing with the all-pervasive global financial
recession, which has adversely affected our members
directly or indirectly.
The publication of this Association diary has given
me an occasion to communicate with you for the very
first time. And I take great pleasure in introducing
to you the 37th edition of our diary, for the year 2009-2010.
These diaries have always been admired by all our members.
I’m certain you will find this edition to be of
great use too and will consider it a gift worth
presenting to friends, relatives and patrons.
I would also like to take this chance to express my
gratitude to all our advertisers and well-wishers. Their
valuable cooperation has allowed this diary to be published
with much success.
I also owe compliments to my colleagues and to the Diary
Committee headed by Shri Ashok D. Shah - their strenuous
efforts have succeeded in bringing this diary out on
time. The staff of the Association also deserves our
heartfelt thanks for the effort they have put in towards
the publication of this Diary.
While the Association has tried to include all the important
information that may be relevant to our members in this
diary, we welcome any suggestions from you for the next
edition. Please feel free to communicate with us.
On behalf of our Managing Committee and from myself,
I would like to express my appreciation to all the members
for their spontaneous co-opreation and assistance in
fulfilling the multiple activities of the Association.
I wish you all good health and a very prosperous new
