Vidarbha Computer & Media Dealers’ Welfare Association, VCMDWA, Nagpur is an old and reputed Apex Body of dealers of Vidarbha, dealing in Information Technology (IT) products.
With objectives like elimination of unfair competition between computer and media dealers of the region, promoting usage of innovative IT products and services, resolving all disputes amongst the member dealers, and to maintain constant interaction and comradeship between the member dealers, VCMDWA has come out with a novel initiative ‘Chai Pe Charcha’.
“The association has decided to hold Chai Pe Charcha on first Sunday of every month. We have already conducted 3-4 sessions. One of our members address the other association members on a particular subject who gives the insights and shares rich experiences about technology or anything IT related, which help members with out of the box thinking,” said Rajesh Saboo, President of VCMDWA.
Dinesh Naidu, VCMDWA’s Secretary explained, “We will definitely incorporate modules, which will be very helpful for the staff members of the association members. Such modules will include technical training on existing and upcoming technologies, hands on sessions on new products and also soft skills like communication, etiquettes and manners, written and verbal communication etc. This will increase the efficiency of the staff members and boost their confidence.”
The first such ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ was held in August, 2016.
The first ‘charcha’ was based on the hot topic of discussion amongst the industry that is GST. All the members were very curious to know the exact working of the proposed GST, rates for various product categories, and ease of implementation.
Shambu Tekariwal, partner of Chandak & Tekariwal explained the working of GST, concept of Central GST, State GST, Interstate GST, transition from existing tax heads to GST and also steps to be taken by the members for its smooth implementation.
After the successful conduct, the association organized the second charcha on a very interesting topic of ‘Consolidating Multiple Businesses for Better Profits’. Rohit Chandak who is a renowned trainer undertook the session.
All the members are now charged up and eagerly looking forward to the next ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ sessions.
