About The Book

It gives great pleasure to present my doctoral study titled "Contribution of the Jains to the Economic and Socio-cultural Development of the City of Bombay (1860-1960)". It is a humble attempt to document the Jain community in the historical perspective. This research has become possible due to the support of a number of people.
