The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has expressed grief over the demise of Sona Group founder chairman and CII’s national council member Surinder Kapur. “It is a major loss for the industry. He was active in shaping a new regime for building competitiveness of Indian enterprises, particularly SMEs,” said CII president Sumit Mazumder.
Kapur was the chairman of the CII Industrial Relations Committee and a long-standing member of the CII National Council in various capacities. He led many important initiatives and Committees for CII over the last many years. He was also the Chairman of CII Northern Region during 1993-94.
Kapur was one of the early proponents of CII’s quality intervention and helped to develop the successful CII Cluster Movement that engages in firm-level competitiveness for smaller enterprises through a shared learning programme.
