Ghaziabad Computer Association (GCA) is contemplating to hold an

IT show on the same lines as the other regional IT shows currently being held

all over the country by different channel associations.

Formed in June 2002, GCA has 60 registered members, in-formed

Rajesh Gogia, VP of the association. "We have a crite-rion that only those

can become members who possess a sales tax number," he said.

The other office-bearers of the association are Vijay Bamba of

Computer Ghar, Pre-sident; Harsh Batra of Classic Communication, Secretary; Arun

Kakkar of Nutek Compu-ter, Joint Secretary; Shalabh Mittal of Graph line

Computers, Treasurer and Suresh Garg of Suresh Typewriter Company, Patron.

"Gargji is a very old player in the market and respected by all, therefore,

we call him the patron of the association," informed Gogia.


According to Gogia, the mar-ket in Ghaziabad has around 200

resellers out of which, only 60 are registered members of the association as

they have a valid sales tax number.

GCA has a registration fee of Rs 500 and another Rs 100 per

month for other activities. "All of us meet on the second of every month

and address the various issues and problems of the dealers and try to solve

them. Recently, we sorted out an HP cartridge problem ami-cably. Then there are

other pro-blems related to replacement, warranty etc and we sort them out among

the groups amicably."

GCA is also planning to hold a cricket match but above all it

plans to organize an IT show if possible in the month of February itself.

"We do have such shows organized by Ghaziabad Trade Promotion Organization,

but it’s not exclusively for the IT commu-nity. Therefore, we want to or-ganize

one of our own. Right now, these plans are underway and before that a lot of

hings have to be sorted out like the expenses and infrastructure required and so



The association has plans to invite dealers from outside too. It

will also be holding its third annual elections in the month of April. "We

haven’t decided upon the date as yet, but yes it will definitely be held in

the month of April this year," revealed Gogia.
