A D Shroff


Ardeshir Darabshaw Shroff (1899-1965) was an eminent industrialist, banker, and economist. He was one of the architects of free India's banking and insurance business. Shroff was amongst the earliest proponents of free enterprise in India.

In 1944, Shroff served as a non-official (since India was not yet independent) delegate at the United Nations "Bretton Woods Conference" on post-war monetary and financial systems. 

Shroff also co-authored the Bombay Plan, which was a set of proposals for the development of the post-independence Indian economy. In the 1950s, Shroff was the founder-director of the Investment Corporation of India and the company chairman of Bank of India and the New India Assurance Company Limited.
