In this age - of cross-technology solutions and a communication
cycle that is ultra dynamic; one that is continuously pushing the limits and reinventing
the means; the BMPA acknowledges the growing inter-dependence amidst the printing
technologies and allied media processes. As a result our membership is broad-based,
comprising of firms who are engaged as: print providers, pre-press, pre-media specialists,
post-press and converting, packaging printing, agencies; And printers' suppliers
i.e. manufacturers and traders.
The BMPA is well networked with other regional print trade associations from all
over India. All of whom assemble under the fulcrum organisation: All India Federation
of Master Printers - a New Delhi based nodal rep of the printing industry.
Over 57 regional associations from all over India come under the AIFMPs umbrella.
At the state (provincial) level the BMPA is similarly affiliated with the Maharashtra
Mudran Parishad, which functions as a state level Federation of printers' association.
The Association has also laid down the standard terms and conditions for the printing
industry. This has served as a stabilizing influence on the industry, and has resolved
many a dispute between a client and a printer. The Association strives continuously
to assist its members to solve their problems. It is fortunate to have obtained
assistance of such expert consultants who are authorities in their respective fields.
At present the association has a battery of consultants on VAT (earlier known as
Sales Tax), Excise & Service Tax and Company Affairs to efficiently handle these
issues. The BMPA is constantly endeavouring to arrive upon a uniform and scientific
method of costing for the print industry and implementing of standards for business
operations and conduct.
