Muni Param Pujya Nayapadmasagarji, Maharaj Saheb, the mentor and conceptualiser of JITO with the blessings of Guru Bhagwants had a dream of uniting all Jains under one Umbrella Organisation i.e. JIO. Jain International Organisation (JIO), is the Apex confederation of all Jains, spread around the world, having under it 16 (sixteen) different organisations such as Jain International Trade Organisation (JITO), Jain International Doctors' Federation (JDF), Jain International Chartered Accountants' Federation (JICF), Jain International Advocates' Federation (JIAF),Jain International Women (JIWO), Jain International Youth Organisation (JIYO), Jain International Government Employees' Organisation (JIGEO), etc.
This concept of JIO as an Apex Confederation of all Jains and of various organisations representing different segments of Jain population under JIO was crystalised by Sahebji after meetings and deliberations with cross section of society from different walks of life over past many years.
With a view to unite all Jain Businessmen and Industrialists (almost 75% of the working population of Jains is engaged in business and industry) in 1999 Shree Jain Vyapar Udyog Seva Sansthan was formed in Ahmedabad. In 2006 the same Sansthan was converted into Jain International Trade Organisation(JITO). The ground work of 20 years carried out by the mentor is now noticed after it became a reality in last 3 years.
