IMS Awards
In an attempt to encourage young researchers and appreciate good research work, the Indian Mathematical Society has instituted Awards for research publications in specific areas. On the basis of donations received from Individuals or group of Individuals, corpus fund is created for such awards. Each of these awards will carry a cash prize and a citation. The IMS Council reserves the right to alter the cash prize amounts as and when it is required. At present IMS has the following awards:

A. K. Agarwal Award
A. M. Mathai Award
Satish Bhatnagar Award
Subhash Bhatt Award
P. K. Jain Award
