said, “I want to

strengthen the association this year by initiating new members. I

also want to conduct vendor meets, IT expositions so that new avenues

of business might open up. We are already reeling under the pressure

of slowdown, so the focus will be on improving the financial strength

of overall business.” Currently the association has 35 members but

Alagappan rues the fact that most of them are very busy and cannot

give too much time for the association. “The situation can only

improve if we all come together. This year, we are on a collective

mission to get maximum participation from all members for all



On a similar note, Fedelis Xavier,

Proprietor of Alffa Computers and Secretary, COSWAD, said, “We want

to increase the total number of members by at least 10 to 20 percent

this year. Like other southern associations, we also want to conduct

awareness programs and many welfare activities.” Dindigul conducts

business of around Rs 3 to 4 crore monthly. The association is

planning on welfare measures like donation of computers to less

It also plans on

securing a separate building for the association activities.

only with dealers who have TIN numbers. All our members know that the

association will support them in times of differences with either

distributors or vendors.” He is also keen on creating dialogues

with regional distributors and vendors like LG to open up service

centers in the city.
