Shri.Vinesh Mehta- President, FAM


A thoroughly self-made person, social activist and former Director of Kapol Coop Bank, Vinesh-bhai  started modestly and now leads a successful business enterprise- Abhay Ispat India Pvt Ltd-  with 100 employees on its payroll.  He loves to embrace problems, rather than getting discouraged by them, confronting them with confidence and is persistent in the pursuit of his objectives. Adversity has not deterred him, it has only made him a much more confident, compassionate and strong person.


In 2016, he was elected as the President of FAM with respectable majority and now is firm in his resolve of making FAM a dynamic and vibrant organization with a slew of initiatives. His objectives and plans are highlighted in his communication to members – “From the President’s Desk” -available on this website.


Following a balanced approach and believing in Sabka saath, sabka vikaas, he promises full support to government for making Maharashtra a super-industrial state while at the same time sparing no effort to fight for the rights of the business and trading community, especially against oppressive laws of the British era.


He has already commenced his outreach programme with the business community from Jalgaon recently and plans to address his member Associations in other cities too in a phased manner.
