Formation of IIME :

At a symposium on Mineral Dressing held at Varanasi on 2nd Jan 1968, it was decided to form an Institute for Mineral Engineers with a view to promote the advancement of science and technology of Mineral Dressing in India. The name of the Institute was proposed to be Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers and the registered office of the Association should be in Bombay in the premises of M/s. Mineral Process Equipments, Marol Maroshi Road, Andheri, Bombay-59, but the mailing address would be: C/o. Metallurgy Division, Engi­neering Hall No. 4, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Trombay, Bombay-85, for some time. Accordingly, a Memorandum of Association including the Rules and Regulations were prepared and submitted to the Assistant Registrar of Societies, Greater Bombay on 31.08.69. The Society got registered on 12th November, 1969 with the name of "Indian Institute of Mineral Engineers, (IIME)" under the Societies Registration Act No. XXI, 1860 and the Registration No. was given as Bom 155/69 G.B.B.S.D.
