Shaping The Public Policy

Chairman, FICCI Telangana State Council

I’ve been the Chairman of FICCI Telangana State Council since 2019. During my tenure, it has been my privilege to represent FICCI at various levels both at the State Government and at the National level.

I’ve been an active member of FICCI since 2010.  I’ve been interacting with the various Ministers, Secretaries, and senior Government officials and made several recommendations to the Government on various policy measures.

I’ve launched ‘FICCI Dialogue for Actionable Insights’ (FIDAI). The purpose of these events is to bring a National Leader dialogue with CEO’s Capitans of Industry, Government and Academia on topics of National Interest.

It is an attempt to gain insights to enhance business excellence and achieve sustainable growth.

Have been privileged to host national and interntional policy makers to understand and contribute to public policy dialogue.

Hyderabad, Sept. 30 (Maxim News):
In a first-ever attempt FICCI, brought together four Southern State Councils of it on board to organise a unique event– “South India GST Conclave – an Online Interaction with the Ministers of three Southern States”.
