My Dear Brethren,

Fraternal Greetings to you!

The last half a century had seen tremendous growth in Freemasonry in India. The current membership stands at more than 25,000. The Masons in India have such a quest for Masonic Knowledge that they did not stop with the basic 'Blue Lodge' but continued with the higher Orders

Having been present in India for over 124 years and with a robust membership, it was but natural for the members to think of forming an own sovereign body to administer the Order under self rule. Such a desire combined with the increasing cost of international affiliation resulted in our petition to Grand Master for the formation of Grand AMD Council In India. After careful consideration he agreed to the formation of the sovereign body inspite of losing a considerable chunk of membership thereby.

Brethren, the Constitution and Consecration of this Grand Sovereign body took place on 14 December, 2013 at Chennai. Most Worthy the Grand Supreme Ruler, M.Wy.Bro. Michael William Guest lead a team from London for the formation of this Grand Order.

Yours forever,

BHARAT V EPUR
