Indian Chapter Introduction

#

In the year 1985, Central Board of Irrigation and Power, (CBIP) as part of its technology forecasting activities identified geosynthetics as an important area relevant to India’s need for infrastructure development, including roads. After approval of IGS Council for the formation of Indian Chapter in October 1988, the Indian Chapter of IGS was got registered under Societies Registration Act 1860 of India in June 1992 as the Committee for International Geotextile Society (India), with its Secretariat at Central Board of Irrigation and Power. The Chapter has since been renamed as International Geosynthetics Society (India), in view of the parent body having changed its name from International Geotextiles Society to International Geosynthetics Society.
