Such conferences & Central Council gives an opportunity for fruitful deliberation, interactions & honor the achievements of Medicals professionals across India. It also brings together research workers, practicing senior & young doctors to a common   platform so as to exchange their ideas & discussions on current problems to help community & medical fraternity.

We all started working for this NATCON – 2017 since month of April with a proper planning in the mind. The important aspect was how to raise finance.  But after the  discussions with  President Dr Sanjay Dudhat and Office bearers of IMA Mumbai west, Dr Akil Contractor, Dr. Ketan Mehta, Dr. Agam Vora, Dr. Shashank Joshi, started finding proper path for the same. Pharma friends had significant contribution which  made this conference a great success.

Entire TEAM NATCON 2017  and  all  IMA  staff contribution is tremendous and I am obliged to all.


Patron Dr Ketan Desai, Past President Dr K K Aggarwal, President Dr  Ravi Wankhedkar, Dr R N Tandon, Dr. V. K. Monga, Dr Vinay Agarwal , Dr Marthanda Pillay have been  giving constant support and encouragement.


I also take the opportunity to thank  all IMA HQ Office bearers,all State presidents and Office bearers who have generously contributed towards IMA NATCON 2017, which is probably for the first time.

“Special thanks and gratitude to the whole IMA NATCON Team and all the delegates across India & our members for their excellent support and contribution for making this mega event  a Grand success”
