Profile of IMARE (I)

Initially The Institute of Marine Engineers existed in India as a division of Institute of Marine Engineers, London. Thereafter the national institute, named as The Institute of Marine Engineers (India) was registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 on 29 October 1977. The first Governing Council of the Institute was formed in 1980. The Institute was subsequently registered as a Charitable Organisation under Bombay Public Trust Act 1950 on 31 May 1982.

The objects and purposes for which the Institute is constituted are to promote the scientific development of Marine Engineering in all its branches and in the furtherance of such knowledge, to enable Marine Engineers to meet and correspond to facilitate the inter change of ideas in respect of improvements and improved methods of working machinery, to publish and communicate information on such objects, to uphold the status of members of the Institute by prescribing or holding examination for candidates for election or by requiring standards of knowledge and experience which can be approved, to cooperate with Universities, other educational institutions and public educational bodies for the furtherance of education in engineering science, and to constitute and maintain a Benevolence fund, for affording relief to indigent members of the Institute and the families of deceased members. This fund, being solely devoted to granting financial assistance after defraying expenses, to be known as the “Benevolence Fund”, and to operate as per specific guidelines formulated by the Institute.

The functioning of the Institute is reviewed by the Governing Council which also decides on policy matters and meets at least twice a year. Members of the Governing Council are the Trustees of this Charitable Trust and their meetings are presided over by the President and Vice President. The day to day functioning is carried out by the Manager and staff, both at the Registered and Head Offices, under the supervision and guidance of the Honorary General Secretary and the Administration & Finance Sub Committee of the Governing Council. The Governing Council consists of Chairmen of all Branches, together with additional members, as necessary, proportionate to the size of each Branch. Similarly each Branch is run by an Executive Committee, and members and Office Bearers both at the Branches and at the Head Quarters, are elected for a term of two years.

The Institute has its Registered Office in Mumbai, and Branches at Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai (with a Chapter at Navi Mumbai), Pune and Visakhapatnam (with a Chapter at Hyderabad). A plot of land in Nerul, Navi Mumbai, was taken on lease from CIDCO in May 1993 and the Headquarters Building constructed on it. This was achieved purely through contributions of the members and donations from well-wishers, without taking any assistance from the Government or Financial Institutions. This Headquarters Building, named “IMEI House”, was then inaugurated by His Excellency, Dr. P.C. Alexander, Governor of Maharashtra, in September 1999.
