Jodhpur Industries Association (JIA) is the pioneer organization established during the year-1958 with its HQ. at JODHPUR. This is the oldest Association dedicated to cause of Industrial growth and development of Industries covering large area of arid zone with low rain fall, water scarcity, lack of communication system/roads/transport in western part of Rajasthan State. The activities of the Association started under compelling circumstances during the year-1958 with a mere strength of few member industries with late Shri I.C.Ghoshal and Shri C.M. Agarwal as President and Secretary respectively. Under the guidance and sincere efforts of these two leaders, the Association could gain momentum to place their genuine demands before the Government for Industrial development and expansion of Industries in Jodhpur District. The initiative taken by these two leaders was followed by able industrialists for the last 66 years with increasing strength and co-operation from other Business community. Sincere efforts paid dividends to change the face/shape of Jodhpur City now being the second largest city of Rajasthan with population touching to nearly 30 lakh people.
