Profile of Tanahun Chamber of Commerce & Industry

1. History:


The history of Tanahun Chamber of Commerce & Industry begins at Bandipur, the village beautifully located on the mountain top. Bandipur was an initial district capital of Tanahun. It was also a trading and financial hub in the mid west Nepal. People from Dhading and Gorkha in the east, Pokhara, Syangja and Baglung in the west and Manang & Lamjung in the north used to come to Bandipur to trade their goods.

Being one of the biggest trading hubs in the region, local businessmen saw a need of an organization that would integrate all the business associates, promote business activities and deal with problems and challenges in business field. Therefore in 1967, with active involvement of few businessmen and social dignitaries, Bandipur Byapar Sangh was founded.

In 1968, the government of Nepal decided to move District Headquarter to Damauli. As a result, most of the businesses sifted to the placed closer to the highway like Dumre, Bimalnagar, Damauli & Narayanghat. Bandipur Byapar Sangh was directly hit by the migration trend, so the Chamber was remained idle until it was moved to Dumre in 1974. Bandipur Chamber got a new life after it moved to Dumre. In the mean time Damauli was growing quit rapidly. Being a district headquarters, all the important government offices were located there. As a result few members of the chamber mostly from Damauli, proposed to move the Chamber at Damauli. Meanwhile in 1982 its name was changed into Tanahun Chamber of Commerce & Industry. Eventually, it was decided to move the chamber to Damauli in 1988.
