About Us
 

 

Foundation:-

This association is largest & oldest apex body of entire writing instruments industries. Shri S.G. Agaskar and Shri Kantilal R. Ghelani have decided to form this association in the February 1968. This decision was taken because government of Maharashtra has raise sales tax on pens from 6% to 8% by misinterpreting the entry in the sales tax schedule.

 

To fight out this injustice, these two gentlemen call a meeting of few prominent persons on 25th March 1968. Total 17 persons were present. They have decided to launch an association name “The Bombay Fountain Pen Manufacturers & Traders Association” An adhoc committee was appointed to draft Memorandum & Article of association. The committee prepares this draft in record time.

 

Thus on 22nd June 1968 “The Bombay Fountain Pen Manufacturers & Traders Association” was officially founded in the presence of 47 members. At present we have 650 Life Members across the country.
