(IMS desires to go paperless)
As is now known probably to all, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has taken a “Green Initiative in Corporate Governance” (Circular No. 17/2011 dated 21.04.2011 and Circular No. 18/2011 dated 29.04.2011) allowing paperless compliances by Corporate India through electronic mode. This is a welcome move as it will benefit the society at large through reduction in paper consumption and contribution towards a greener environment.

Though Indian Mathematical Society is not a part of corporate India, it is an organization of highly qualified intellectuals which greatly appreciates this move by Government of India and IMS Members will be happy to learn that the Council of our Society willingly decided on its own to take lead by participating in this noble cause. Accordingly, the Society proposes to send IMS News Letters, Member’s Free Copy of The Mathematics Student (from 2011 issue onwards) and any other member communications henceforth to the members in electronic form to their email address registered* by the members with the Society instead of sending them in physical form .

It may please be noted that the IMS News Letters and Contents of The Mathematics Student will continue to be available on the Society’s website and a physical copy of The Mathematics Student will continue to be available at the IMS Library (Ramanujan Institute of Advanced Study in Mathematics, Madras University, Chennai) as well as at the Registered Office of the Society (Department of Mathematics, University of Pune, Pune – 422 007) for reference during office hours.

Society looks forward to the support from all the IMS Members in this initiative for the noble cause.

* IMS Members who have yet not registered their E-mail address are requested to communicate their E-mail address, along with Name and their Unique Membership Number (without fail) to .

For the benefit of those life Members who have yet not registered their E-mail address, the pdf file of the Mathematics Student, Vol. 81, Nos. 1-4, (2012) onwards are made vavilable here on Society's website.

For the kind information of the Members
