Computer Media Dealers Association (CMDA) and ReIndia have mutually agreed to
resolve the issue regarding the misuse of CMDA logo during the expo and the ill
treatment meted out to association members by the organizers.
Puneet Singhal, President, CMDA stated that the controversy over the use of
CMDA logo by ReIndia at the expo was raised because of a communication gap and
both parties have agreed to bury the hatchet in the interest of the trade.
“The matter has been resolved. It happened because of a communication gap.
ReIndia will provide us a free stall in their next exhibition and they will be
using our logo. Further, ReIndia and CMDA will work jointly towards the
betterment of recharge and recycling industry,” Singhal commented.
Commenting on the same, Virendra Chopra, Member of Organizing Committee,
ReIndo Expo said, “We need support from the associations to promote the
industry. We are also seeking government's attention towards recycling industry
that is aimed to be an environment friendly initiative. CMDA will get a free
stall in the next expo ReIndia organizes and the latter will use the CMDA logo.”
ReIndia Expo will next be held in January 2010. Trade Expo India Promotions,
main organizer of the expo, is also approaching Indian Cartridges
Remanufacturers and Recyclers Association (ICRRA) in Mumbai to participate in
It may be recalled that CMDA had withdrawn its participation from the expo
held in March this year on the grounds of ill-treatment of its representatives
and lack of cooperation from the organizing committee.
