Welcome to MEAI
The Mining Engineers’ Association of India (MEAI) was founded in the year 1957 under the dynamic leadership of Mr. N. S. Claire. The Association came into existence due to the collective vision and wisdom of a few enterprising mining engineers working in the metal mining belt of Orissa and Bihar. The founders of the Association had to struggle to establish a base for the Association’s effective functioning during its infancy. It was only in the year 1965 that they could succeed in getting the Association registered under the Indian Trade Union Act, 1926 with its Registered office at Rungta house, Barbil, Orissa. Readmore.
The association was registered under the Society’s Act, 1860 on 15th April 1981.Initially, the title of the Association was conceived as “Mining Engineers’ (Metalliferous) Association”. Subsequently, the title was changed to “Mining Engineers’ Association of India” to convey its broadened outlook and also to bring all the professionals working in the mining fraternity under its fold.The aim of establishing such a professional body was to safeguard and enhance the professional competence and integrity of mining industry professionals viz., mining engineers, geologists and allied engineers, serving in the opencast and underground mines. It was also aimed at contributing its might to induce scientific and technological developments in the mining industry for the benefit of its profession and the country.The continued and whole-hearted efforts of the senior professionals in the mining industry resulted in launching of 24 Chapters that are geographically located across the length and breadth of the country representing the aspirations of the mining fraternity. The Chapters of the Association are Barajamda (1957), Goa (1975), Bellary-Hospet (1975),Bailadila (1976), Dalli-Rajhara (1978), (now merged with Raipur Chapter), Nagpur (1979). Belgaum (1982), Raipur (1987), Tamilnadu (1988), Hyderabad (1991), Sukinda (1991), Rourkela (1992), Jabalpur (1992), Calcutta (1992), Veraval-Porbandar (1992), New Delhi (1994), Himalayan (1995), Bhubaneswar (1996), Ahmedabad (1996) Bangalore (1996) Rajasthan (initial name Udaipur ) (1998), Rayalaseema (2005), Jodhpur (2007), Jaipur (2010) and Vizag (2011). The figures mentioned in brackets indicate the year of launching the chapter. The formation of the chapters and their subsequent activities have provided the desired fillip to carry our sustainable activities of the Association, at large and also succeeded in attracting the attention of mining industry professionals serving in far flung regions of the country.The head quarters of the association was shifted to Hyderabad in the year 1995 to enable the members from different parts of the country to have easy access in view of the geographical location of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. The association’s head office is established in its own premises (F-608, Raghavaratna Towers, (A-Block), Chirag Ali Lane, Abids – 500 001).The association entered into bilateral agreements with SME, (USA), AusIMM (Australia) and SAIMM (South Africa) for exchange of information on latest Technological advancements in the field of Mining.To meet the objectives of the association, MEAI conducts National, International Seminars and Symposia, Workshops, Training Programmes, Group Discussions etc periodically, besides publishing a monthly magazine – Mining Engineers Journal- and distributes to all the members (4500) freely every month.
