Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industry

The Chamber turned into the financial universe of the East from the mid 19th century - not merely as a forum for networking, but as a powerful enabler lobbying for the development of the economy and infrastructure. It became the first port of call on matters of Federal and State Government policies and legislation.

The legislations that the Chamber reviewed and commented upon before their passage through the Parliament and Assembly are too numerous to be commented upon separately. Just to mention a few, the Chamber was associated with the framing of the Customs Act; played a major role in the framing of tariff policy and shipping laws; helped draft the first Life Assurance Legislation (1910) and played a critical role in framing the country's first Income Tax legislation. These apart, the Chamber has also suggested modifications in the Indian Companies Act and the Indian Insurance Act and examined and suggested changes in the first Indian Electricity Bill (1902). The Bengal Chamber was involved in the conceptualization of the airport at Dum Dum and the Howrah Bridge and had lobbied for the creation of overland trade routes with China through Tibet. These are only a few of the quintessential feathers that adorn the Chamber's cap.

The Bengal Chamber has helped in the formation of a slew of educational and cultural institutions - Indian Institute of Management Calcutta, Indian Institute of Social Welfare and Business Management (IISWBM), Nazrul Manch and the Academy of Fine Arts apart from bringing to Kolkata the son-et-lumiere at the Victoria Memorial.
