LUB-Punjab President Adv.Arvind Dhumal congratulated LUB-Malerkotla for organising 9th Laghu Udyami Sammellan of LUB-Punjab. He informed the members & entrepreneurs present about the circumstances which led to the formation of LUB, 25 years ago, as MSMEs in India came under tremendous pressure owing to the de-reservation of items reserved for small scale industries after the signing of GATT agreement under WTO provisions, which led to closure of many SSIs in small towns resulting in unemployment. Then the thinkers of country’s future decided to raise an industrial organisation which could work for the betterment of SSIs, & thus LUB was formed. LUB was instrumental in the formation of separate MSME ministry by Atal Behari Vajpayee govt.
Now LUB is actively working in approximately 500 industrial towns of India from J/K L in the North to Kanyakumari in the South, from Assam in the NE, Port-Blair in Bay of Bengal to Goa in the west, in approximately 400 districts across all Indian states. He said that, main aim of LUB is that, state & central govts. should formulate SSI friendly policies & even central govt. has recognised LUB as the one & only representative of Small scale industrial sector in Inida, & has given it representation in all the boards, committees of the ministries concerned with MSMEs. Its suggestions are invited each year before the preparation of Union Budget, & its two members represent Indian MSMEs in ILO each year.
After that, the reconstruction of new LUB-Malerkotla team was done with the appointment of Mr.Puneet Dhingra as its next President. He was advised to formulate full executive of the unit, with the induction of new Gen.Sec., treasure & secretaries in consultation with former Presidents – Mr.Jagat Kathuria, Mr.Kuldeep Dhiman & Mr.Suresh Jain, which he assured to do.
After that, some entrepreneurs present there requested to be made members of LUB, & their membership forms were filled there, & they paid the membership fees, in the form of cheques.
Guests were presented with plants as souvenir & as a save environment drive!
Vote of thanks was paid by past LUB-Malerkotla President Mr.Kuldeep Dhiman!
Sammellan culminated with high-teas!
