Dear MCAA friends,

Massive thanks to each one of you for your kind support and encouragement. I am overwhelmed with your support and will look forward to each of you to make Indian Chapter much more active. I am available for your suggestion, requirements or discussion to implement the ideas of ours & MCAA and to spread information in wider prospective. We are working closely with European Union here at India as well in Brussels to disseminate more information timely to the desired researchers. Please let me know if you need any of such help in future.  

Welcome the new members !!!

Dear All, It is a great pleasure for me to welcome all of you specially new members in the MCAA Indian Chapter. Now we have crossed the 150 mark and hoping to cross 200 soon. We are planing to extend the board member for the chapter for which a notice will be posted soon on the chapter page. I request all of your to send your participation according to your interest. The basic idea is to develop a core team who will look into all the chapter activities to make the chapter more effective and transparent.
