According to Mr. Jay Galla, Young Indians (Yi) National Chairman and Managing Director of Amara Raja Batteries Ltd., "Young Indians, a CII initiative, comprises of a group of Indian achievers and professionals below the age of 40 years engaged in Building a Better India. Yi believes that Young Indians through their energy and passion can motivate a generational change and influence the economic, social and political fabric of our country."
"Putting India first, is the primary vision of Yi", says its National Vice Chairman, Dr. Rahul Mirchandani, Executive Director of Aries Agro Ltd., who would be one of the key speakers at the conclave.
