Speaking to The DQ

Week,
K Madhusudan, technical director, Indrayani Sales said, “In

India, the major busin style="background: rgb(255, 255, 255) none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">ess

of MPS is

happening with OEMs and they are already controlling around 24%

of the total market, may be even more. MPS is going to be 'T style="background: rgb(255, 255, 255) none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">he

Business

of Tomorrow.' Unless we prepare for the mega opportunity by

uniting to get the desired technical and other professional

knowledge, then only we will become followers/onlookers of the OEM.

We have to be contented with the business in which OEMs will not be

interested in, and it is going to be like the refilling or

remanufacturing business.”

He also added, “This

meet will be seeing participations from 40 MPS and IT associations

from across India including PCAIT Delhi, CMDA Delhi, CMDA Pune, SITA,

TAIT, CIITA an style="background: rgb(255, 255, 255) none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">d

Confed-ITA. The

core objective of this meet is to propagate MPS technology

opportunities for partners and educate them how the MPS concept is

growing globally. So, it is strongly requir style="background: rgb(255, 255, 255) none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;">ed

to

form an association. If we unite and put pressure by

aligning with other major industry associations like FICCI, CII,

ASSOCHAM, nothing is impossible. Unity and will-power, with egoless

dedication to grow along with other co- promoters is the action for

the moment."

According to Pradeep

Mahindru, owner of ACM Cartridge Rechargers, “The MPS market has

been positively taken by the remanufactures' supplies and cartridges.

And it holds good potential for cartridge remanufacturers. However,

partners lack enough awareness on this. This forum will provide

MPS-related products and services to the end-user community in an

informational environment. It will also offer case studies, feedback

and ideas to the MPS providers.”
