    Make your own ‘Will’ - 23th November, 2017


    Day:       Thursday
    Time:     3.30 pm
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate

    Your will tells everyone what should happen to your money, possessions and property you are no more. If you don’t leave a will, the law decides how your estate is passed on – and this might not be in line with your wishes.

    It’s easy to make a will – and it will save your family unnecessary distress at an already difficult time.

    Retired Justice V. M. Kanade will guide us to write your will and the importance of doing the same. He was the second senior most judge of the Bombay High Court after the Chief Justice before he retired. He was on the bench for almost 16 years.

    “Leave a legacy you want to be remembered by”

    Property rights of women in India remained largely an ignored and unaddressed issue. While it has come a long way ahead in the last century, Indian women still continue to get fewer rights in property than the men, both in terms of quality and quantity. And protecting our property is right bestowed to all the citizens of India.

    Did you know that the right to protect your property is similar to that of self-defense against a physical attack?

    Senior Advocate and Solicitor, Mr. Parimal Shroff will guide to know more about property rights for women in India and how to protect the same.

    Mr. Parimal Shroff is an eminent real estate lawyer in Mumbai and has vast knowledge and experience in this field. He heads the law firm of Parimal Shroff and Company. Mr. Shroff has also drafted in 2002-2003 The Maharashtra Infrastructure Development and Support Act (MIDAS) for the Government of Maharashtra and the same is in the advance stage of being introduced by the Government of Maharashtra.

    “Be it a mother… a wife… a companion… a daughter… a daughter-in-law… a granddaughter or a granddaughter… Know your Right to Property”

    Time:     12.00 noon
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate.

    Goods and Services Tax, a major tax reform with several unique features is now a reality. We too, like other countries, will have one indirect tax in place of many.

    A “Good and Simple Tax” as described by Hon’ble Prime Minister at the time of launch of GST on 1 July, 2017, let us understand how it works and why is it considered as a simple tax and a good tax.

    How does it work and how does it impact you as business or as a consumer ? Will the prices of goods go up or go down ? When you use services, you would have been told, tax has gone up now that GST has come, is it right ?

    Your support staff might tell you that the tuition teacher is now asking for additional fee as there is GST. How much of it is right and how much of it is not?

    Let us understand from our own, Past President,Ms. Bhavna Doshi, chartered accountant and a specialist in the field of indirect taxes.

    Ms. Bhavna Doshi, as you might know, was the President of the IMC and is a much sought after speaker on thesubject addressing conferences and seminars across India and outside on India.

  • Maritime India and Indian Navy – 11th August 2017

    Maritime India and Indian Navy – 11th August 2017


    Day:       Friday
    Time:     5.00 pm
    Venue:   Presidential Ballroom, Taj President, Cuffe Parade, Mumbai

    Did you know that the Indian Navy traces it beginnings to the Indian Marine raised by the East India Company in 1612? The Indian Marine was formed to protect the East India Company's trade. The Indian Marine transformed into the Royal Indian Marine in 1892 that became the Royal Indian Navy (RIN) in 1934. The RIN was rechristened as the Indian Navy in 1950 when India became a Republic.

    The primary role of the Indian Navy is to protect our Nation's maritime interests. The Indian Navy also plays a pivotal role in enhancing India's international relations with friendly foreign countries through regular joint exercises and port visits. They are also great ambassadors as they play a pivotal role in Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief operations around the globe, and particularly in the Indo-Pacific region.

    IMC takes this opportunity in inviting you to celebrate the 70th year of Indian Independence by honouring the Indian Navy and saluting them for safeguarding our country.

    IMC and its Ladies’ wing welcome aboard, the Commander-in-Chief of the Western Naval Command and look forward to hearing about the salience of Maritime India and the Indian Navy. Thereafter, lets hear from the Navy Wives Welfare Association (NWWA), an Association of wives of the Indian Navy's personnel, about the welfare development programmes for the naval families as also their community outreach initiatives. Let us also understand a serving Woman Officer's perspective of life in the Navy.

    Come and celebrate the glory of Indian Navy when independent India turns 70!

    Time:     3.30 pm
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building

    What change will the WINDS bring in this first programme of the New Year?

    Will they change our response to unhappiness, agitation, misery arising out of attachment and aversions and dejection?

    We at IMC promise you an afternoon where the senior Masters of the Vipassana Foundation Shri M. M. Khandhar and Shri Ajit Parekh, will address these very issues using the technique of Vipassana.

    For those who are unaware, Vipassana is an ancient technique, propagated by Lord Buddha.

    When we suffer, we do not keep our misery limited to ourselves; instead, we keep distributing it to others. How, then, can we live peacefully? How can we remain harmonious ourselves, and maintain peace and harmony around us?

    The session will include a screening of Guruji S. N. Goenka’s talks and a session on the meditation technique known as Anapaan. So come and experience the fulfilment through this world renowned ancient method of achieving happiness.
