(Hony. General Secretary)

A decision was taken that a Federation of All India Auto Parts Dealers’ Associations in India should be formed and that the Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras Associations should become Founder Members.  Associations in other town were to be enrolled as Associate Members.  A Constitution Sub-Committee was appointed and contribution amounting to Rs. 1,300/- were collected from the Four Associations for meeting the preliminary expenses.  Few meetings of the representatives of various associations were held thereafter to give some shape to the Federation and to draft the Constitution.

A Motor Parts Price Control Conference was convened in New Delhi by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry on 15th November 1952 which was presided over by Mr. T.T. Krishnamachari, the then Hon’ble Minister of Commerce & Industry.  Following representatives of Parts Dealers’ Associations from Bombay Calcutta, Delhi and Madras attended this Conference:-

•  Shri D. S. Kalyanpur : Bombay
•  Shri A. C. Roy : Calcutta
•  Shri S. K. Banerji : Delhi
•  Shri P. Sharan Gupta : Delhi
•  Shri V. Kunjithapadam : Madras
•  Shri P. Chandriah : Madras

A Joint meeting of all these representatives was held alongwith other DMTA Executive Committee members to discuss and further consider the set up and formation of the Federation.  The matter continued to move till the holding at Bombay on 12th January 1953 of the Tariff Commissions First Public Inquiry in the question of assistance or protection to the automobile industry was held.

On the eve of this Inquiry Meeting at Bombay, the representatives of three Trade Associations again met to discuss the Federation plans.  Strange, as it may seem, it was after this meeting that the chapter regarding the formation of All India Federation was closed for the time being. On 11th January 1955 another Conference comprising delegates from Vehicle Manufacturers and Assemblers, State Transport Undertakings, Parts Dealers Associations and other Government officials was convened in New Delhi by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, to consider the possibility of reduction of spare parts prices.

Mr. H.V. Iyengar, the then Secretary to the Ministry presided.  At this Conference, the Ministry wanted the formation of Federation of Spare Parts Dealers Associations at the earliest in case the same did not already exist and the Government officials were informed by the Trade Representatives that the Parts Dealers Associations were already working out a Federation plan.  Mr. Iyengar had urged to expedite the formation of such a body and had assured that the Government was prepared to extend all help in the formation of the Federation, if necessary.

The thread was again taken up where it was felt.  A Joint Appeal on behalf of BMMA and DMTA was addressed to 23 different Motor Parts Dealers Associations in India, explaining to them the urgency for formation of an All India Federation.  A rough draft of the proposed Constitution was also circulated.

The things unfortunately moved at a slow pace.  The efforts, however, continued but that enthusiasm, which was witnessed during the first part of the decade was somehow lacking.  During this period of 12 years, 1950-62, many of the stalwarts could rightly be called the architects of the Federation did not live to see their dream come true.  They are Late Mr. D.S. Kalyanpur, Bombay, Mr. A.K. Choudhary, Calcutta, Mr. B. Mukherji, Calcutta, Mr. Prem Nath, New Delhi and Dr. Trilok Singh, Delhi.

It took about further six years to finalise the draft Constitution of the Federation and to get the same approved and adopted by the respective associations at Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras.  It was on January 12, 1962 that the Federation was registered under section 25 of the Indian Companies Act, 1956 under registration no. 3623 with the four Associations of Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras being its Fonder Members.

After the registration of the Federation, a meeting consisting of the following was held in Delhi on May 7, 1962 to chalk out a programme for convening the first Statutory Meeting of the Federation and to elect the Executive Committee members and office bearers:-

1. Mr. P.K. Basu

3. Mr. Kuldip Singh Chadha
4. Mr. Bhartindu Chandhoke
5. Mr. Raja Gulab Singh Sethi

As decided, the First Statutory Meeting of the Federation was held in Delhi on 2nd June 1962.

Thus was born the Federation of All India Automobile Spare Parts Dealers Associations, which was dream of 12 years back had now become a reality and had seen the light of the day.

The Federation was formally inaugurated at Bombay by Mr. S.K. Patil, the then Union Minister for Foods & Agriculture on 31st December 1962. The meeting was well attended by a large number of Motor Parts Dealers, Automobile and Ancillary Manufacturers and other dignitaries connected with the development of Road Transport Industry from all parts of the country. Mr. P.K. Basu of Calcutta Motor Dealers’ Association, Calcutta, was elected the first President of the Federation:-

President : CMDA
Vice President : BMMA
Hony. Secretary : CMDA
Secretary : MMPDA
President : DMTA
Hony. Secretary : DMTA
Member : DMTA

Aims & Objects of the Federation :

The objects for which the Federation was established amongst others are to promote and develop co-operation amongst firms and companies and associations connected with the automobile spare parts trade and industry in India and to support and protect the interest of the automobile spare parts and allied trades and of those engaged or interested therein including the interest of the manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers or retailers and workshop owners.

The Federation had been able to play its role in eliciting the views of the trade in the matters of import, export, sales tax, distribution of indigenously produced automobile spare parts and various procedural matters consistent with the Government policy and had tried to improve upon the authorities concerned for taking proper actions.

When the import of Ball, Roller and Tapered Roller Bearings was canalized through the State Trading Corporation (STC), the import licences were being issued to individual agents and organizations in the trade. After the formation of the Federation, it undertook to persuade the STC to issue the import licences for bearings to the Constituent Members of the FAIASPDA. As a result thereof, the STC had agreed to get issued 40% of the value of import licences of Ball, Roller and Tapered Roller Bearings to the Member Associations affiliated to the FAIASPDA.

The following table throws light of the import licences issued to various Member Associations during the past years:-

Year Value of licences issued
to the Member Associations
1963-65 42,85,000.00
1964-66 57,96,948.00
1965-67 42,51,971.00
1966-68 62,02,640.00
1967-69 61,27,041.50
1968-70 36,91,000.00
1969-71 33,50,000.00
1970-72 48,35,000.00
1971-73 25,45,000.00
1972-74 14,25,000.00
1973-75 22,20,000.00
1974-76 19,50,000.00

It will be seen from the above that through the Federation the Member Associations have been able to get import licences for Ball and Roller Bearings for a total value of Rs. 5,16,79,600.50

The Federation originally consisted of only four Founder Member Associations from Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras and subsequently more members were enrolled and the Constitution of the FAIASPDA continued to be amended in accordance with the requirement of the changing times to enable the various associations related to automobile trade to enroll themselves as members of the Federation. As such the Constitution now provides for the admission of associations of the parts dealers of Tractors, Two and Three Wheelers, Tyres, Agricultural Machinery, Industrial and Earthmoving Construction Equipment and Ball Bearings etc. which can also become members of the Federation. Even individual firms can now be enrolled as members. These amendments now ensure an All India character of the Automobile Trade & Industry as a whole. Today the Federation has 33 Associations as its members on rolls in the country. The strength of the dealer members today affiliated through our associations is about 60, 000.

FAIASPDA Bulletin :
The Federation started the practice of bringing out every month its Official Organ FAIASPDA Bulletin wherein day to day activities of its members and matters of interest relating to the automobile spare parts trade & industry within the country and abroad are published. The Federation also disseminates through its official organ the useful and important circulars relating to our trade & industry issued by the Government & semi Government & other departments, copies of which are sent to the dealer members affiliated to our Member Associations throughout the country free of cost. It has really proved a very useful media for the dissemination of the above information.

The Federation has been rendering assistance in offering liaison between the spare parts dealers and various Government Bodies. It acts as a media to arrange import of motor vehicle parts and bearings etc. between the Member Associations and State Trading Corporations and/or other Government Organisations as also distribution of indigenous spare parts equitable in different parts of the country after negotiating with the All India Automobile &Ancillary Industries Association(now ACMA), Mumbai.

The Presidents of the Federation have continued to be in various Councils and Committees formed by the Government like Development Council for Automobile & Allied Industries etc. and others. Besides, the Executives of the FAIASPDA are often invited to various meetings convened by the Central and State Governments. The Federation has also been often consulted by the various Government authorities with regard to various matters like customs duty, clearance of consignment by the port authorities and import & export etc.
The constituent members of the Federation have contributed lacs of rupees as donation to the National Defence Fund at the crucial time of wars with China and Pakistan. It was very much alive to its basic duties and responsibilities at the time of Emergency in the country by maintaining price level of the spare parts and preventing any exploitation. Its Regional Associations contributed liberally towards Prime Ministers’ Relief Fund when as a result of natural calamity, was in the grip0 of unprecedented floods.

Federation collects, compiles and distributes among the members datas relating to automobile industry and suggests ways & means to promote the trade. All possible efforts are made at the Federation level to eliminate the sale of spurious goods in the country. It endeavours to create well informed trade opinion on the urgent special enquiries and actions for securing redress of the legitimate grievances of the members are taken.

It has bold plans of holding Conferences, Discussions, Seminars, Symposia and Lectures to find of automobile spare parts trade and to guide them with regard to quality and price and to find out answers to the urgent problems of the trade. It is convening to protect the interests of the small manufacturers.

The Federation submitted the memorandum the questionnaire framed by the latter suggesting to unify the rate of sales tax throughout the country which should not be more than 6% in any case and it should be charged at source.

With the spectacular growth of automobile industry in the country the Federation gradually rose to the occasion to meet up the challenges of the time and brightened its image.

In order to tackle the common problems confronting the automobile trade, industry and the consumers, we have formed a common platform called the Joint Platform viz. Central Co-ordinating Committee on Transport Trade & Industry (CCCTTI) with common aims & objects relating to the automobile industry, ancillary industry, spare parts trade & road transport industry.

Federation Profile :
The Federation of All India Automobile Spared Parts Dealers Associations is the Apex Body of the entire Automotive Spare Parts Trade & Industry, represent its 46 regional associations from the length & breadth of the country having in its fold more than 50,000 spare parts dealers. We are actively engaged in undertaking a constant study of the economics of the road transport and allied industries and we make special efforts to help improve the levels of services of all the allied trades & industries.

We support and offer all possible assistance to the Government in furtherance of their objectives to keep the cost of the road transport at the lowest level fully appreciating that the transport charges adds to the cost of the goods and services and not to their values, and, therefore, thus essential infrastructure has to function effectively, efficiently, smoothly and with utmost economy. Members of our constituents are dealers in spare parts mostly self employed with limited resources and they are rendering a vital service to the vehicle owners(two wheelers, three wheelers, cars, commercial vehicles and tractors etc.) by meeting the requirements of parts and accessories. It came into being in the year 1962.

The objects for which the Federation was established are, among others, to promote and develop the spirit of co-operation amongst the business houses dealing in the automobile spare parts and industry in India, to support and protect the interest of the trade as such and of importers, exporters, wholesalers, retailers and, above all, the consuming public.

The Federation has established close relations with the various Central Government Ministries and other authorities who are being kept fully posted with the day to day problems confronting the trade and thus useful service rendered by the Federation to our trading community stands fully appreciated. Through the sustained efforts of the Federation and with the willing co-operation of all its members, the traded voice is heard with increasing attention at all levels.

The Federation has actively discouraged the sale of spurious parts. We have formulated the fair trade practice code.

Besides holding the price line and ensuring the standard quality items, the Federation has taken up the task of export promotion. It sponsored foreign tours for its members and help in the creation of export houses in major towns and lend full support to the exporting dealers.

The Federation is alive very much to the question of sales tax, octroi, excise duty and has at many occasions supported the cause of the trade before the authorities. The Federation by itself cannot achieve much in this sphere and has to rely on the support of the entire trading community and the consuming public and one of the most effective ways is to hold Seminar & Conventions to highlight these points and also to mobilize public support and opinion for the purpose. The Federation campaigns vigorously in such matters and the achievements will certainly justify it.

The general economy and the socio political situation of the country is in transitional period and all the business community has also to transform itself with the changing time.

The Federation had an impressive past and has marched ahead steadfastly and is the future hope of the trading community and to fulfil it an integrated effort is required to achieve the aims and objects for which it stands.

There is no gainsaying the fact that the road transport industry, which we assiduously serve, is of nationally vital and strategic importance. It is the only modern, quick, easiest and most economic agency of the transportation that can reach the far corners of our land and traverse it isolated terrain. It is the line on which the nation depends for the speedy display of essential commodities in the days of danger, drought, distress and not to mention the countless men & material moved all the time. In this great nation building endeavour, the parts trade plays not an insignificant role and is ever alive to the call or duty despite many obstacles.
