We all know and appreciate the contribution of the Parsee Community in the State of Maharashtra and more particularly in making Mumbai the commercial capital of the country. The Parsee Community is known for its honesty and philantrophy. Some of the historical monuments and public utility services have been contributed by the Parsee community for the city of Mumbai. We also cannot forget the contribution to the Civil Aviation Sector of the community through its legend – Mr. J.R.D. Tata and even today the Parsee families like Godrej, Cama's, etc are contributing towards industries and social welfare in the State in a big way.

The Parsee Community, however, is now facing a very serious demographic problem and consequently may become extinct within the next few decades. Hence, it is to request His Excellency to instruct the Government of Maharashtra for the appointment of a Parsee citizen as a Member of the Maharashtra State Legislative Assembly either on continuous basis or on alternative basis i.e. one time Anglo-Indian and one time Parsee Community. Alternatively, one Parsee citizen can be accommodated as Member of the Legislative Council appointed by His Excellency, Governor of Maharashtra. His Excellency may also recommend that one person from the Parsee community may be included in the list of nominees of the President of India to the Rajya Sabha.

The National Commission for Minorities has earlier recommended representation of the Parsee Community in the Rajya Sabha. I am enclosing herewith the relevant newspaper cutting for your reference and perusal.

JI sincerely hope His Excellency, being the Head of the State, will decide favourably for the Parsee Community in the State.

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,


Mangal Prabhat Lodha

MLA-Malabar Hill & Tardeo
