Shri Hiren Karia

Hon. Secretary

It is my privilege to serve esteem alliance of trading body Federation of Paper Traders Associations of India (FPTA) as Hon Secretary for consecutive 5th years . I am truly delighted by the overwhelmed appreciations given by our associates and opportunity to learn from senior stalwarts to carry out my responsibilities. I am really thankful to my home association PTA, Mumbai and also the pillars of FPTA our 35 Associations for having faith on me. After several months of hard work by team website under convenorship of Shri. Nirmal Kuhad we have re-launched our website, Heartiest Congratulations. Creating a website isn’t a one-time task. Keeping the content fresh and relevant, sticking to the scheduled plan, keeping an eye on those analytics and making it sure asking for feedback from members for the best chance of success. Keeping it secure, safe from malicious attacks and essentially well maintained. We request our members to explore the website to find out more about our services, discover our past work, meet our team and read up on the latest insights. We hope you’ll love our site as much as we do. Your guidance for functioning of website, will keep it alive. FPTA has been constantly working for the benefit of the traders and for safeguarding their interest at all appropriate levels.
On one hand it keeps its members well informed about the developments, government laws, statistics and information connected to the trade. On the other hand it acts as a representative of the traders for communicating their problems and requirements with the union and state governments and for representing and negotiating with the industry. The federation also conducts and represents the trader community in various seminars, exhibitions, training courses, etc. On the social front the federation is trying to remove from the public’s mind the myth that all paper is made by cutting trees. We want the public to know that forests are not lost due to paper usage because for every tree that is used to make paper we plant at least two new trees.
