ACTI’s Journey of 50 years (1962-2014)

The Baroda Chapter of ACTI was started in 1965 by Dr. Gami of GSFC and others. The Surat Chapter was inaugurated on 19th October 1980 under the leadership of Dr. R S Gandhi. The Bombay Chapter of ACTI came into existence subsequently with the help of Dr. (Prof.) W B Achwal of BUDCT. These chapters were instrumental in expanding the activities of ACTI in the country.

Then a sad period came in. Shri K M Shah, Shri K K Shah, Shri K A Shah, Shri Mahendra Shah, Dr. P C Mehta, Dr. H C Srivastava, Shri R H Shah expired one by one in a period of 2-3 years. The sad demise of these great personalities, indeed was a gloomy period in the history of ACTI

Later, Dr. R H Alurkar became President and Shri R K Shah the Secretary. This team continued the activities of ACTI. During this period the ACTI office was renovated along with Computer, Fax, Printer and a Small AC Seminar Room to accommodate 50-60 participants. Now ACTI is able to conduct Lectures, Refresher courses even at a short notice at it’s own seminar room. At this stage, some young and enthusiastic members entered in ACTI such as Shri A D Bhagat, Dr. S D Wadekar, Shri R M Sharma, Shri J K Shah, Shri G D Jasuja and many young members came in.

Under the presidetialship of Dr. R H Alurkar ACTI successfully carried out the task of demerging all the ACTI Chapters at Baroda, Surat and Mumbai. This was done in order to smoothen the activities of ACTI and to avoid Income Tax complications. The Baroda and Surat are now independent Chapters registered as separate organizations under the Charity Commissioner. The Bombay Chapter, however, has been closed.

Hitherto ACTI’s mainstay of activities was related to Textiles. It was imperative to change this mind set for ACTI’s existence and progress thereby. This change was heralded by having dialogues and seminars on Chemical Technologies related to Fertilizers, Oils, Plasma Science, Environments, Vegetable Dyes, bio-technology, Exports and Technical Education.

ACTI earmarked a decent sum for providing books and journals, under its educational activities, to institutes like L D Engg. College and R C Technical Institute. Students are encouraged (through subsidy) to take part in trade fairs, essay writing and paper presentation competitions. Scholarships are also provided to needy and bright students of Chemical Technology.

In the last 10 to 15 years, it has been observed all over the world that there is a drastic reduction in attendance in seminars and conferences. Moreover, participants for such meetings are persons of ripe age. ACTI decided to overcome such lacuna in two ways. First, to increase rapport with a number of organizations and to conduct seminars jointly. For this ACTI has strengthened relations with organizations like ATIRA, Textile Association of India, Textile Committee, Institute for Plasma Research, Gujarat Dyestuff Manufacturer’s Association, CII, Gujarat Chemical Association, UDCT Alumni Association, etc.

The Second strategy is to involve younger generation in the activities of the Association. A number of educational activities are, therefore planned and executed to generate interest amongst the students and to increase their exposure to new technologies. ACTI’s interactions with institutes like L D Engg. College, R C technical Institute, NIRMA Institutes, National Institute of Fashion Technology, EDI, etc. have increased during the last 4 - 5 years and ACTI regularly carries out its educational programs for which the Association has earmarked a decent fund. Under the leadership of young and dynamic Dr. S D Wadekar and his team ACTI has decided to attract young dynamic people from areas as varied as Oil, Pharmaceuticals, Paints, Fertilizers, Nanotechnology and Education and involve them in the activities of ACTI. ACTI is now all set to come back on the fast track growth rate with high spirits of Dr. Wadekar and his team.
