About F.E Dinshaw Commercial & Financial Reference Library

The F.E Dinshaw Commercial & Financial Reference Library was established in 1967, as part of the Diamond Jubliee Celebrations of the IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The library was set up to perpetuate the memory of Shri. F.E Dinshaw, a leading industrialist who made a very valuable contribution to the development of steel and cement industries of India.
