In a milestone achievement, an initiative of the Confederation of Indian Associations in Australia (CIAA) will unite many established community organizations within New South Wales, for the common good of the diaspora.
The CIAA is the peak umbrella organisation for Indian communities across the country, with the aim of creating an environment of open dialogue between various organisations, besides identifying common issues, considering solutions and presenting a united front in reaching out to the Federal and State levels of governments.
Several independent organisations exist, and many are doing good work in realising their objectives. In a meeting held on July 18 in Sydney, the CIAA has, with the assistance of an interim committee, agreed with the United Indian Associations (UIA), other organisations and leaders to a united front in NSW, that will lead and support the diaspora here. “Members representing various community organizations in NSW agreed to work together with United Indian Associations (UIA) for next 12 months with transparency and accountability to achieve major goals of CIAA. Members also agreed to establish a steering committee consisting of Jaydatt Nayak, Suraj Kapila and Praful Desai (President CIA) assisted by CIAA-NSW advisors Stanley D’Cruz, Anagan Babu and Vish Viswanathan to move forward and implement further actions as required in close communication and consultation with all members,” stated the CIAA, following the meeting.
Members also agreed to establish a 1-800 Toll Free Help Line number for the benefit of the Indian community, which will be set up by The Indian Telegraph.
Said Vasan Srinivasan, Chair of CIAA, “This is a major milestone in achieving community unity in NSW. The CIAA will continue to develop strategies at the national level for priority issues that are of national importance to the Indian community settled in Australia.”
