New Delhi: Mr Tarun Das, known to have spearheaded Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) to success and recognition over the years, has retired from CII. Mr Das was the Chief Mentor of CII for the last five years, 2004-2009.

"My focus as Chief Mentor was to facilitate an effective change process. I was available to the Presidents and to Chandrajit Banerjee who has been the DG, CII since May 2008 to ensure continuity and a smooth transition. I believe we have been able to see through this process of transition smoothly and effectively and have therefore decided to now step down as the Chief Mentor," said Mr Das.

Prior to being the Chief Mentor, Mr Tarun Das was the Director General of CII from 1974 -2004, evolving CII from a small engineering association to the apex industry organization of India.

"My involvement on day-to-day matters of CII has not been there since the last 5 years. The organization has the requisite internal strength to move ahead also on strategic issues and given the unique profile it has from the strong industry membership, I have no doubt that CII would continue to be the single most important point of reference for the Industry," he added.

Mr Das who turned 70 earlier this year, will spend most of his time now on International Relationship building and matters related to domestic development.

"Under Tarun's leadership, CII has been instrumental in managing and initiating changes that shaped the socio-economic environment of the country over several decades", Venu Srinivasan, President, CII said.
