This year when B.M.C.C. celebrating its Platinum Jubilee, it is a matter of pride to present a brief account of our esteemed library too. BMCC Library is a unique of its kind. We are happy to say that, it is turning 45 this year. The colossal, two storied, specious library building is the jewel in the crown and was a millstone in the history of BMCC. It was inaugurated in November 1973 at hands of the illustrious jurist and the renowned economist of India Shri. Nani Palkhiwala in the graceful presence of the notorious dignitaries of that time. It is now recognized as one of the prominent research library in the field of commerce. Well-known for its richness, convenience, accessibility.
