About

BCC&I

The Bengal Chamber of Commerce and Industry, India’s oldest institution of its kind, traces its origins to 1833. The Chamber has played a pioneering role as a helmsman, steering the evolution of Commerce and Industry in India. The Chamber reviewed and commented upon some of the most critical legislations in the country.

The Bengal Chamber has managed to remain both young and relevant simply because it is quick to recognise and value the only constant in time – change.

The Chamber has a vibrant IT Committee comprising all leading developers, consultants and corporates. The focus has always been to communicate and create a bridge between technology users and developers on how applications can make enterprise planning and manufacturing processes simpler, faster and less complicated – achieving all this at a lower cost. Most importantly, as a catalyst, service provider, initiator of sector-specific activities, facilitator of business and spokesperson for the State Government, the Chamber envisions itself to be the most valued partner of our members in promoting and facilitating sustainable growth.

Our signature programme is Business IT Conclave, the ninth edition of which was held on June 2018.The Conclave brings together stakeholders of IT to discuss, brainstorm, and share best practices of the latest happenings in the realm of technology.
