A Fervent Appeal

All the Members of the Society are humbly requested to appeal to their non-resident friends, not necessarily from mathematics, to become Life Members of the Society by paying Membership Subscription of US $1000/-. This may be considered as a token of goodwill towards the Indian Mathematical Society, and a benevolent act of charity on their part for the welfare of the Society at large.

• Membership form is available on the website

Special Life Membership Fees (Foreign)

Those Life Members of the Society who are residing abroad can become Life Members (Foreign) of the Society by paying concessional fee of US $500/- (instead of US $1000/-) so that a free copy of the Mathematics Student can also be sent to them at their addresses abroad (currently, as a matter of policy, the Society sends to them only the IMS News Letters in order to keep them informed about the current activities of the Society).
