The application of correct Tribological practices can protect and enhance the life of plants and machinery, improve efficiency of operations, reduce energy consumption and prevent expensive breakdowns. Major organizations and academic institutions in the country have realized the  importance of Industrial Tribology and its relevance to modern design and  efficient plant maintenance . To provide a common umbrella to work further in this area, Tribology society  of India (TSI) was set up as a professional, non-profit body bringing  together academicians, industry as well as research organizations as its members. It was set up in its present form, in June 1989, with its  headquarters at Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited, Corporate R&D at Hyderabad. This society is affiliated to the International Tribology Council, UK which has  33 other  national societies  spread all over the world . The activities related to tribology in the country started way back in 1972 , when First International Conference on Tribology  was organized  by Indian Institute of Technology at New Delhi. Continuing with this, a series of National and International Conferences had been organized in the last 29 years.The society has seven local chapters organizing a number of events like seminars and workshops. The society also  has a regular quarterly newsletter, which will soon be developed into a full-fledged journal. There are plans to bring out Tribology series  Booklets  to disseminate information related to various topics of interest to  industries.

SAEINDIA is India's leading resource for mobility technology. As an individual member driven society of mobility practitioners the ownership of SAEINDIA wrests with its members who are Individuals from the mobility community, which includes Engineers Executives from Industry, Government Officials, Academics and Students. SAEINDIA is an affiliate society of SAE International registered in India as an Indian nonprofit engineering and scientific society dedicated to the advancement of mobility industry in India.The officers in Section Governing Boards, Operating boards and Committees share the onus of its efficient functioning here. All efforts are on now with a single minded purpose to propel the automotive engineering profession by focusing on three trends occurring in the automotive industry today that affect all automotive engineers and engineering societies. During its hundred plus years, the automotive industry has achieved remarkable progress in both production output and technological development. However, associated with this progress has been a slight yet noticeable lag in the level of technological development as compared to the increase in production volume. The founding principle of the SAE International is to unite scientific and technical staff to perform free academic discussions, to dedicate themselves to the cause of prospering the science and technology for automotive vehicles and to make contributions to speed up the modernization of automotive industry. A great deal of effort has been expended to make these definitions suit this purpose. It is recognized quite well by both SAEINDIA and SAE International which keeps on raising its bar on standards since like linguistic dictionaries; even our efforts and purpose must be revised periodically to reflect current usage and changing needs.
