Forti History

FORTI was registered in 1965 as Rajasthan Vayapar Udyog Mandal by former members of the Rajasthan Chamber of Commerce – JP Bajaj, Umrao Mal Chordia, Vishwanatha Kejriwal, and Shri Periwal with the motive of supporting businesses and trade within the state, facilitating conversations that breed change and innovation to bring about a bigger change in the business world. 


On 7th February 1980, Rajasthan Vayapar Udyog Mandal was re-named “Federation of Rajasthan Trade and Industry” with the same mission and vision at the core of its foundation. Umra Amatal Chordia became the first elected President of FORTI, remained in power from 1995-1998, and contributed significantly to the growth of FORTI. 


Post that, FORTI has been headed by incredible visionaries who have been the guiding light of the organization, helping it achieve new milestones. Currently, FORTI is headed by Mr. Suresh Agarwal who is the only FORTI President to have been re-elected to power for 4 consecutive terms. Under the guidance of these exceptional leaders, FORTI continues on its stride towards ease of conducting business and trade and helping businessmen establish their presence globally. 

FORTI is defined not only by its presence and people but it is also defined by its fundamental values that are reflected through its daily activities and decisions. These fundamental values are what propel FORTI to new heights.

Surjaram Meel

“FORTI helps people not only grow their businesses but also their professional network – one crucial building block for businesses. Through their vast expertise and resources, FORTI has been of incredible help to the community at large.”
Mr. Surjaram Meel is the Director of Royal Ensign, the Director of Hotel Lemon Tree, Hotel Hometel Khasa Kothi Jaipur, and the Chairman of SKIT College. FORTI looks up to incredible business acumen and leadership. His advice on trivial business issues has always guided FORTI towards new heights. “It is often said that opportunity knocks at our doorstep just once. If we fail to grab that moment, the only thing left is to wait for another opportunity. The time has come when this fatalist approach must be discarded and a new idiom of success be embraced. The idea is that one should channelize one’s talent in such a way that one receives a pool of opportunities. Even if the first one is missed, there are many more to feel proud of.”
