National President

Shri Shyam Bihari Mishra was born on 8 May,  Vill. Pipra, District Kanpur to Late Pt. Baijnath Mishra and Smt. Jayanti Mishra.  After graduation, he joined the family trading business of grains but the born leader in him was waiting to be unleashed.  He successfully raised the voice of the traders community at various forums -  demanding honour, fair treatment and just policies for the trading community from the government.  It was no wonder then that he was elevated to the post of Secretary General of the Kanpur Galla Aartiya Sangh - the post which  he held during the period 1975-92.  In 1992, he became the President of this traders' association.

Pt. Mishra's forceful personality and never-ending zeal to fight for the cause of his fellow brotheren kindled hope in the hearts of business community to such an extent that he was given more and more responsibilities not only by various trade organisations but also by the Government when he got elected to the highest forum of the nation - the Parliament on three consecutive occasions.


Pt. Mishra has charismatic leadership qualities and this fact has been exhibited on several occasions.  A great patriot,  he did not confine himself to the cause of business community only.  On the very contrary,  he became the most authentic voice of his parliamentary constituency and was elected as member of the Parliament in 1991, 1996 and again in 1998.  He never  believed that businessmen should have only expectations from the government and that they don't have any duties.  Under his dynamic leadership, various trade organisations always remained at the forefront in the face of national crisis and natural calamities and extended all possible help to the government.


Pt. Mishra has always been a fighter for the cause of the people who reposed unwavering faith in him time and again.  It is very difficult to count the number of trade organisations which have been working under his dynamic leadership.  Bhartiya Udyog Vyapar Mandal - the apex body of the trade and small industries in the country is one such organisation.
