Mumbai: Mumbai-based Trade Association of Information Technology (TAIT) has elevated Rushabh Shah of Graham Computers as one of the Directors of the organization. He was a member of TAIT and served as a co-Director of TAIT last year. The post was vacant after Chetan Shah, put in his papers as Director of the association citing health reasons and the need to focus more on his own business.

A section of TAIT members claimed that Shah quit because of differences with some key members of the body. “A known key member was dominating the organization, which forced Shah to quit,” said a member on the condition of anonymity. However, Shah denied the statement.

He said that the decision was taken because of his ailing health. “I had expressed my desire to quit three months ago. But, I was asked to continue till COM-IT Expo 2008, which is the biggest event organized by TAIT,” he said. Shah also noted that in view of the current economic situation he wanted to channelize his energies more on his own company, Xpress Computer Technologies.

Similar sentiments were also expressed by some of the members. “Even in a family members have differences in opinions, but that does not mean that we leave the family behind. Shah is quitting because of his health reasons, which is known to everyone,” said Anees Khalfay, President, TAIT.

It is worth mentioning that this was second resignation in the association in the current calender year. Sandeep Parasrampuria of The Best IT World had resigned as a Director in TAIT in the last quarter of FY 2007-08. Parasrampuria citied personal reasons for his resignation.
