IN THE YEAR 1971, TRUCK OWNERS WERE NOT HAVING ASSOCIATION OF THEIR OWN AND WERE SUBJECT TO MUCH HARASSMENT FROM GOVERNMENTS AND OTHER LOCAL BODIES, AS ALSO FROM THE INDUSTRIALISTS AND TRADERS, WHO WERE ITS POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS. SHRI. K. G. KANITKAR WITH SOME OF HIS FRIENDS THOUGHT OF FORMING AN ASSOCIATION TO FIGHT FOR THE CAUSE OF UN-UNITED TRUCK OWNERS. SHRI. KANITKAR WAS ABLE TO MUSTER ABOUT 50 MEMBERS AND FORMED “MAHARASHTRA TRUCK OWNERS' ASSOCIATION”. BY REPRESENTING THE CAUSE OF TRUCK OWNERS UNITEDLY AND CREATING PROPER LOBBY WITH GOVT. AUTHORITIES, THIS ASSOCIATION WAS ABLE TO GET POPULARITY AND MEMBERS STARTED ENROLLING THEMSELVES.
