Dear Friends,

We have been having good start of financial year 2022-23, with economy recovering modestly, despite recessionary global trends.

At Wicma we have been having many successful activities, at our Deccan & Marathwada Division.

I request other Divisions to conduct seminars / meetings that are useful to the members at large.

Our R&D Centre & Testing Lab is too doing a wonderful job.The Practical course in Testing has been a runaway success, with participants from around the country joining.

As part of their Golden Jubilee celebrations, FCBM is felicitating and honouring its Past Presidents for their great and invaluable contribution to the growth of the Federation. Past Presidents from the Western Region were felicitated in a function held at Mumbai, on 23rd July 2022. During the function, many dignitaries recounted anecdotes & interesting stories that occurred during their respective tenures.

From this issue we are going back to our erstwhile print version & I hope members will go through the same & give feedback.

Warm Regards,

Kirtikumar Gandhi
