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.

The Library provides selective and up-to-date source materials on major economic, commercial and other developments in India and abroad. These can be made available for reference, to the users who need such information who are not only the members of the IMC, but also to the business community, students and the public at large.
