ACHIEVEMENTS OF TIA

Achievements of Taloja Industries Association (TIA) are numerous. We have listed out some of these below-

  • ESIC Hospital in Taloja MIDC

    Taloja Industries Association (TIA) has been following up hard with ESIC authorities to set up an ESIC Hospital in Taloja MIDC area.

    Shri Satish Shetty (Anna)-Hon. President - TIA and Managing Committee members of TIA had met Shri Rajesh Tope, Hon Minister of Public Health and Family Welfare - Govt of Maharashtra, to strengthen the process of putting up the Hospital in Taloja MIDC, on 13th January 2021.

    TIA's efforts have borne fruit and ESIC has consented to setup an 100 bedded ESIC Hospital in Taloja MIDC on 15th July 2021
  • Taloja Industries Association (TIA) had been continually following up with MIDC authorities to designate Panvel as the Regional office (RO) for Taloja MIDC. Motive behind this cause is mentioned below-

    Mahape is around 25km from Taloja. MIDC, while Panvel (Khanda Colony) is around 9 km only. Hence the distance to reach Mahape, from Taloja, is very long. This distance matters a lot and inconveniences various Industries at Taloja MIDC, when they have work related to property transfer, new plot allotment, charge creation, subletting, lease rent and other land related issues etc, as they have to travel all the way to Mahape.

    Finally,after persistent follow-ups of TIA, MIDC has released an official order on 17th May 2021, to designate Taloja MIDC Industrial area to fall under Panvel Regional Office (RO).

    In achieving this status, TIA has one again exemplified that interest and business continuity of the Industries are foremost priority for TIA.
