India took its first tentative step towards economic liberalization in 1991. The economy was in the midst of a radical change and the Sponge Iron Manufacturers Association (SIMA) was constituted and started operation from 11 February 1992. It was officially registered under the Society Registration Act XXI of 1860 on 31 January 1994. The overall mood was of great dynamism, qualitative change and greater choices. It was felt, that if the government did not facilitate growth at this time, Indian economy would slip back into the moribund 70's. Therefore, the fundamental premise behind the formation of the Association was to promote and protect the interest of the Indian Sponge Iron Industry.
SIMA has come a long way since inception to bring all sponge iron manufacturers together. Now in a multi-dimensional role, it represents the Indian DRI Industry and provides a common platform for regular interface with the Government of India and other regulatory authorities. n the current economic scenario, the role of SIMA has significantly enhanced to maintain a coherent plan, which represents in totality, the requirements and hardships faced by the industry.
Dear Mr Kashiva
Once again hearty congratulations to you for successful in not just organising but also opening business
opportunities for your members. Keep it up.
Thank you for your kind email. It was my pleasure to meet you. Congratulations for organizing an excellent event.
Hope to meet you in some other conferences worldwide at near future.
It was our pleasure to be part of this event, both in the planning and execution phases.
Congratulations to you and the team!
Great conference. Congrats
Hope to see you when I next visit India.
I wish to thank you and SIMA for inviting Midrex and providing an opportunity for us to speak during your recent conference in Dubai. It was extremely well done and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was especially impressed that the delegates continued to participate in the conference throughout the day. Most conferences I've attended are only sparsely represented during the latter hours of the day.
It was pleasure seeing you and thanks for your invite. Your event was a great success…
It was a pleasure to be associated with this event, which as an aside was my first iron sector conference so I learned and personally benefitted a lot during the event.
I look forward to future interactions with you and SIMA.
Congratulations for a well-organized conference.
It was very well organised and gave great platform for interaction.Papers presented were of standard and so were the panel discussions. Congratulations to you and your team for excellent arrangement.
I must admit that the entire event was a roaring success with every participant having gone back with excellent memories. The event was planned and executed meticulously. This was made possible due to your tireless efforts along with valuable inputs from Mr D. P. Deshpande Chairman SIMA and Mr Tatia former Chairman SIMA.
SIMA has got international recognition and has been growing from strength to strength in the last few years and am sure with your continued efforts will become a premier business body in our country and establish itself in the international scenario as well.
Once again profuse thanks to you and the Chairman SIMA for organising an excellent international conference.
We appreciate the courtesies extended to us during the event. I would like to congratulate SIMA for a very well conducted event. Best wishes for the future and may our organisation grow stronger.
