Indian Industries Association (IIA) is an apex representative body of Micro, Small and Medium
Enterprises (MSME) with a strong membership base of about 6500 Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises
(MSMEs). IIA is a member of National Board of MSME as well as an accredited association from NABET,
QCI with GOLD GRADE. The motto of IIA is to create an enabling environment for the development of
MSMEs in today’s ever changing and extremely competitive industrial scenario.
IIA’s formidable presence is the direct result of its extensive network of more than 40 chapters
spread in most of the industrialized districts of U.P, Delhi, Uttarakhand and surrounding states. It has
carved a niche for itself as a leading perpetrator and facilitator in the MSME circle while striving for their
cause since its inception in 1985.
In 1985, a group of committed young professionals joined forces and conceived the idea of an organization
that can act as a catalyst for the promotion and growth for Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises. It was
thus that U.P Chapter of NAYE (National Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs) came into being. In July 1992,
however, NAYE was renamed Indian Industries Association (IIA) with the roles and objectives of the
organization further widened to suit the needs of changing socio-economic environment.
The Indian American Business Council (IABC) is an umbrella organization to support small and
