After welcoming the members to the AGM, the immediate former-president Sunil Jain requested president Atul Goel, honourary general secretary Prakash Dass and treasurer Puneet Talwar to take their seats on the dais.   

In his welcome address, Goel expressed his gratitude to the members for reposing their faith in him by electing him as president for the year 2022-2023 and also for extending their full cooperation to him. 

In his speech, he also highlighted the association's activities during the period of 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023. 

The activities included submission of representations from time to time to GST, DPCC and NCERT authorities for seeking relief on issues affecting the businesses of members; celebration of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav on 14 August by hoisting the national flag; a seminar on GST on 17 September where CA Mohit Golchha successfully clarified members' doubts and queries about the implementation of amendments in GST, and the celebration of Printers' Day by serving mid-day meal to over 600 students of Arya Anathalaya on February 24.

Dass read out the Annual Report for the outgoing year. He condoled the death of members during the past year by reading out their names and at his request the audience stood up in silence for two minutes to pray for the departed souls. 

Talwar presented the statement of annual accounts for 2021-2022. The annual accounts were approved when Mahender Budhiraja proposed them and Gulshan Marwah seconded them. 

The returning officer Mukesh Kaushik stated that the due procedure of calling nominations from intending candidates for the posts of office bearers and executive committee members for DPA's election for 2023-2024 was duly followed. 

He read out the names of the unanimously elected new team for 2023-2024 and invited them to assemble at the dais for a group photograph. Amid loud cheers members of the new team were individually introduced and felicitated with garlands by the outgoing office bearers and senior former presidents.
