History
Posted On : 12th January 2017

Indian Chemical Council (formerly Indian Chemical Manufacturers Association) was founded in the year 1938 by Acharya P. C. Ray & Rajmitra B. D. Amin, along with a group of Industrialists for promoting the interests of the nascent chemical industry.

What began as a vision, emerging from foresight and aspirations, became the Indian Chemical Manufacturers Association and was again rechristened the Indian Chemical Council (ICC). It became the representative body of the Rs.7083 billion (US $ 104 billion) chemical industry in India.

Its members include both Indian companies with a global presence as well as subsidiaries of multinationals.

Over the years the Indian Chemical Council went from strength to strength and has evolved into a movement embodying the goals, concern and achievements of the chemical industry in India.

In keeping with the dramatically paced growth of the industry in the latter half of this century, the ICC has striven to give an impetus to the objectives of the industry. Realizing the power of information, ICC has consciously worked as a bridge for the many that forms the Indian Chemical Industry
