Indian Music Industry was established on 28th Feb 1936 as the Indian Phonographic Industry (IPI), and is Second oldest music companies' associations in the world engaged in defending, preserving and developing the rights of phonogram producers, and actively promoting and encouraging advancement of creativity and culture through sound recordings.
Rechristened Indian Music Industry (IMI) in 1994, it is a non-commercial and not for profit making organization affiliated to the International Federation of Phonographic Industry (IFPI) and is registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act.
IMI members includes major record companies like Saregama India Ltd. (HMV), Universal Music (India), Tips, Venus, Sony BMG Music Entertainment (India), Crescendo, Virgin Records, Magnasound, Milestone, Times Music and several other prominent national and Regional labels that represent over 75 % of the output in legitimate recordings and a wide range of musical repertoire.
Despite India's rich musical tradition; one capable generating sizeable revenue for the country in every genre the music industry has seen a decline in fortunes in the last few years. This is due to the unabated growth of piracy. Like a disease piracy has makes its ugly presence felt with every new launch or hit of music . IMI has reacted to this menace by setting up an anti-piracy operation consisting of more than 80 personnel's but despite a massive task force to counter it, piracy eludes easy treatment or even containment with alarming ease. In spit of the fact that IMI has been instrumental in conducting hundreds of anti-piracy raids spanning the length and breadth of the country, the Indian music industry has lost of over Rs. 1800 crores in the past three years.
Operating through Registered office in Kolkata, Mumbai (Administrative office), New Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and several other cities and towns across India focusing on surveillance, law enforcement, and intelligence teams, IMI is now working with newer strategies and better infrastructure to reach and strike at the very roots of piracy in India.
Three Years ago IMI along with MTV, launch the first music awards in India, THE IMMIES which has been resounding success. The objectives of the award were to reward music talent.
