The board of the Business Continuity Institute has approved the formation of a new BCI India Chapter, which becomes the 10th BCI chapter worldwide.

The formation of the new chapter builds on the work of the existing Indian BCI forums in Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi, and will create new opportunities to raise the awareness of business continuity and resilience in the region.

The BCI India Chapter informally has plans for a series of professional development and networking events, webinars, an annual conference and an awareness raising programme around the importance of BCI certification for aspiring professionals.

R Vaidhyanathan MBCI, president of the BCI India Chapter, commented: “There can be no better time for the formal launch of the BCI India Chapter as the importance of BCM and visibility has been increasing since the recent Deluge in Chennai. We have been working hard to setup this chapter since late 2014 and now we are there. This is an exciting development and a step forward in the maturity of the BCM and BCI in India.”
