- Established in 1907, the Indian Merchants‘ Chamber is one of the oldest and most active Chambers of Commerce in the western region of India, promoting trade and industry and a harbinger of change and economic growth.
- When the Indian Merchants’ Chamber was established the country was in political ferment. The founders wanted to work towards liberating Indian industry, trade and commerce from foreign domination, and the Chamber was in the forefront of the Swadeshi Movement. In recognition of the Chamber’s signal role Mahatma Gandhi had accepted the Honorary Membership of the Indian Merchants’ Chamber, which is the only Chamber in the country to enjoy this privilege.
