New team at Devbhoomi Printers & Publishers Association

Ranu Bisht Oberoi is president, Sanjay Verma elected secretary

Office-bearers for Devbhoomi Printers & Publishers Association

The Devbhoomi Printers & Publishers Association from Uttarakhand has elected a new team of office-bearers for the next two years. Ranu Bisht Oberoi has been unanimously elected as the president for another term of two years during the general body meeting held on 12 August 2023. 

Ranu won with a margin of more than 12 votes over her nearest rival. She said all the association’s members believed print businesspersons needed to make collective efforts to deal with the challenges of the sector.

Ranu has earlier said when she established Samaya Sakshaya, it took time for people to swallow the fact that a woman could conduct the printing job. Over the years, her hard work has paid and she was recognized on many platforms as the only woman printer and publisher of Uttarakhand. 

Sanjay Verma from Alpine Industry, who was elected as the secretary once again, presented a report on the activities of the association for the last two years.  Ajeet Singh from S S Print and Traders, who was elected as the treasurer for the next term, presented the accounts for the period. 

The AGM was conducted under the guidance of Amit Garg from Om Color Creations. The team for the next two years includes Ranu Bisht Oberoi as President; Anil Bhatt as vice-president; Sanjay Verma as secretary and Ajeet Singh as Treasurer. 

The elected executive members are Chandra Prakash of Vani Printers; Mayank Garg of Anil Enterprises; Yogesh Kapoor of MS Printers and Computers; Amit Garg of Om Color Creations, Hardeep Singh Bawa of Jeet Printers; Chetan Suri of 4 Colour Print Solutions; Rameshwar Bahuguna of Himalayan Enterprises and Harbhajan Singh of Lion Printing Press. 

The association of printers from Uttarakhand was established about 10 years ago with Adesh Gupta as the founder president, followed by Anil Mittal and Amit Garg.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
