CII's Yi Chapter at XLRI

Jamshedpur, April 3rd,2008: The first local chapter of CII's Yi (Young India) Net was formed at the XLRI today with the formal signing of MoU between XLRI director E. Abraham and Jay Kamani, the chairperson of Yi Net in Jamshedpur, today.

“Yi is a group comprising young Indian entrepreneurs, businessmen, managers and professionals who unite under one roof with the objective of creating a better future for the Indian youth and to bridge the gap between the different sections of society. The focus areas of YiNet include economy, education, environment, healthcare, youth affairs and employment,” said Rohan K. Mehta, the national president of Yi Net, who was present at the B-school, today.

There are about 18 Yi chapters in the country comprising 836 members.

Some of the unique movements launched by Yi Net across the country are fund-raising events for developmental projects, rural education, AIDS awareness work and several others.

“This is just the beginning. In the coming days, the B-school would witness a rise in the number of such units through schools and colleges,” said Kamani.

CII would also help students organise several knowledge-sharing platforms with company chiefs, corporate behemoths and young political leaders.
