Street corner named after Professor Diwan

On the morning of Friday 26 February a street corner in Hindu Colony, Dadar, Mumbai was named after the late Professor GS Diwan, who was a fellow of the Institute.

This honour was bestowed on him for his dedicated service in teaching mathematics and actuarial science. The late professor was awarded a Gold Medal in 1980 by the Institute of Actuaries of India. He was also posthumously inducted in the Insurance Hall of Fame in 2008 at the annual conference of the International Insurance Society held in Taipei, Taiwan.

The function to unveil the cornerstone was attended by a large number of his family, friends and students. The local Municipal Corporator and the local member of the Maharashtra State Legislature were also in attendance.
