Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister, Government of India, Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB), Government of India, National Disaster Management Authority, Government of India, Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and Government of Gujarat as the State Partner is organizing a Conference on Chemical & Industrial Disaster Management (CIDM), March 14-15, 2018, Convention Hall, Hyatt Regency, Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Gujarat is likely to inaugurate the conference.

The main focus of the proposed conference and exhibition on 14-16 March 2018 would be to make industry globally safe by better emergency planning of accidents – onsite, offsite including isolated storages. The conference would also provide a platform to Indian and International companies to share their success stories, best practices and technologies to minimize accidents on production site and during transportation of chemicals, hazardous wastes and hydrocarbons. Technical sessions on Engineering, Paper, Oil & Gas, Biomedical Industries have been included in the programme.

We are expecting more than 300 delegates throughout India. Expert Presentations/ Panel Discussions on relevant topics would give an impetus to the proceedings. The Technical Committee of the conference has great pleasure and privilege in inviting you to provide a talk on ‘Transportation of Hazardous Chemicals by Road’, during Technical Session I on March 14, 2018 at Ahmedabad.

The road transport and highways ministry is set to launch the pilot for a global positioning system (GPS)-based tolling project on the Delhi-Mumbai corridor, a move seen as a game changer for road passengers as well as infrastructure companies. Under the GPS-based tolling system, India’s first, commuters will pay only for the distance they travel on a toll road as against the current practice of paying a fixed toll irrespective of whether they use all or a part of a road.
