Share This


NEW DELHI: Indian technology- distribution industry, the country’s leading technology distributors have come together to kick start ‘The Technology Distribution Association of India‘ (TDAI). The Association’s motto reads thus, ‘’we can only build when we know how to sustain”.

In the course of the last two decades, India has taken incredible strides in the use and adoption of Information Technology products both in the consumer as well as the commercial space. While the technology vendors have played a pre-eminent role in introducing the Indian customer to the immense benefits of their products and solutions, the widespread use of IT products and processes can, in a large measure, be attributed to the contribution of a huge distribution channel, which has facilitated easy availability through their reach, presence and financial commitment.

With an aim to drive the industry’s next level of evolution through constructive dialogues amongst all stake holders, the leading Indian technology distributors have founded TDAI. The current members of TDAI collectively contribute nearly Rs. 50,000 crores ($ 8 billion) annually toward the total IT industry business in the country.

A first of its kind non-profit organization in Asia Pacific and India, TDAI’s objective is to build a transparent and organized distribution services sector in India through risk mitigated best practices. While maintaining a strategic and healthy channel through good governance and appropriate compliance standards, from the Manufacturer to the End User, TDAI will support the industry’s development and expansion while ensuring business hygiene.

TDAI will provide all industry stake holders a common ground for deliberating on regulatory issues that impact them, with a view to take those up with relevant authorities for resolution. It will act as a platform through which they could contribute inputs and information that would help shape the industry. TDAI will facilitate interaction with various Dealer Associations on common issues faced by the distribution eco-system as also a forum for discussion with Vendors on taking the channel business to its next stage of development. The initiatives of this Association will pave the way for fostering trust and goodwill amongst all stakeholders of the community.

TDAI’s current members are:

  • Avnet Technology Solutions
  • Compuage Infocom Ltd
  • Inflow Technologies Pvt Ltd
  • Ingram Micro India Ltd
  • Iris Computers Ltd
  • Neoteric Infomatique Ltd
  • Rashi Peripherals Pvt Ltd
  • Redington India Ltd
  • Savex Computers Ltd
  • Supertron Electronics Ltd
