The Institute of Indian Foundrymen (IIF) and the Manav Rachna International Institute of Research and Studies (MRIIRS) have joined hands to establish the Faridabad Chapter of IIF Northern Region at the Manav Rachna campus.
The Faridabad Chapter of IIF was declared open by Industries Minister Mr. Vipul Goel in the presence of Dr. Prashant Bhalla, President, Manav Rachna Educational Institutions (MREI); Mr Shashi Kumar Jain, President, IIF; Mr. Vinit Jain, Secretary, IIF; Dr Dewan D Chopra, Treasurer, IIF; Dr N C Wadhwa, VC, MRIIRS; Dr Sanjay Srivastava, MD, MREI and other senior industry members from IIF.

At the inaugural ceremony, Mr. Vipul Goel shared the focus of the Haryana Government towards providing a transparent environment to the industry, and the one-roof clearance system in Haryana. While addressing members of the industry, he said: “Today, Haryana has established itself on the No. 1 position in North India for the ease of doing business. However, this industrial growth must not hinder the environment. Let us encourage the concept of green industry. I am sure with some of the best brains at Manav Rachna and IIF working together, there will be many research solutions for this.” He also acknowledged the contribution of Manav Rachna towards the government’s sterling schemes including ‘Make in India’, “Skill India’ and ‘Digital India’.
Thanking IIF for choosing Manav Rachna for establishing its first chapter in Haryana; Dr. Prashant Bhalla said: “Manav Rachna stands by the vision of its Founder Dr O P Bhalla … of giving back to the society. With these purpose, the various centers of excellence at Manav Rachna have been contributing extensively towards a meaningful existence. I am confident that this center will become the most competitive and pivotal center of IIF not just for Faridabad, but the whole of Delhi NCR.”
