After receiving a makeover with a new logo and image in August 2008, Council continued to grow in a very dynamic manner. As a sequel to INDEE series, EEPC INDIA organised six such exclusive engineering exhibitions in Caxias do Sul (Brazil), Jakarta (Indonesia), Bogota (Colombia), Cairo (Egypt), Bangkok (Thailand) and Casablanca (Morocco) between October 2009 to December 2012. 
His tenure is dotted with many firsts. After doing backbreaking ground work, EEPC INDIA organised its first India Show in Istanbul, Turkey in January 2011. This initiative was a part of the Government of India policy to promote “Brand India’ concept by organising at least six such shows in the year. The main objective of the India Show was to promote India’s image and provide a platform to Indian exporters to showcase their strengths and capabilities in overseas market. EEPC INDIA organised 2nd such show in Toronto, Canada followed by Shows in Tokyo, Japan and Brno in Czech Republic.
Another first of its kind was India Engineering Sourcing Show (IESS), an event of “India Show” stature of Ministry of Commerce & Industry which was held in Mumbai in March 2012. This Show created a platform for exporters of engineering products and services to built business contacts with leading buyers from the globe and also to highlight India as an ‘Outsourcing Hub’ for the engineer industry. The 2nd edition of the Show was organised in March 2013 and success story is going to continue.

The Golden Jubilee was celebrated at VigyanBhavan, New Delhi on 23rd January 2007 and was graced by the presence of Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, the then President of India; Shri Kamal Nath, the then Minister of Commerce and other leaders & dignitaries.
After a gap of 21 years, India successfully staged a mega display of its engineering prowess in Hannover Fair 2006 – the world’s most prestigious technology Show. In this Show, India was honoured as ‘Partner Country’ and this prestigious event was jointly inaugurated by the Indian Prime Minister, DrManmohan Singh & German Chancellor, Ms Angela Merkell. The Council played pivotal role as the lead coordinating agency with the support of Ministry of Commerce & Industry. 
His tenure witnessed hectic promotional activities as Council combed different regions of the world through its exclusive engineering exhibitions in Almaty, Kazakhstan; Jakarta, Indonesia; St Petersburg, Russia; Mexico City, Mexico; Cairo, Egypt; Johannesburg, South Africa; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Shanghai, China etc. Besides this, marketing efforts were stepped up through participation in various product specific international exhibitions, Buyer-Seller Meets and Trade Delegations.
Serving the country for more than five decades in promoting export of the Indian engineering goods and services, the Council extended its focus on imports and investments in the engineering sector in order to enhance the export capabilities of the sector. Thus came the makeover and the Council changed its name to EEPC INDIA from Engineering Export Promotion Council.  The logo was also changed giving emphasis on global branding.
