♦ The History
Mahratta Chamber of Commerce and Industries (MCCI) was founded by Late Mr A. R. Bhat in 1934 to accelerate the industrial growth in and around Pune. Mr Bhat was a journalist and an economist and was the General Manager of the famous Marathi newspaper 'Kesari'. Thus the first office of the MCCI was established in 'Kesari' premises.
In 1947 the Chamber moved to their own premises on Tilak Road, Pune. In 1998 agricultural activities were also included in the scope of the Chamber's activities and MCCI became MCCIA. In July 2006 most of the offices shifted to the modern office at the MCCIA trade Tower on Senapati Bapat Road, Pune.
