Welcome to the Southern Asia Region

The Southern Asia Region provides support to around 5000 members residing in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Maldives. Region is supported by one branch, two groups and country representatives. Student Chapters are functioning in India, Sri Lanka,  Pakistan and Bangladesh. More information will be found in the respective web pages.

Members and prospective members are assisted with their needs and interaction among members is at a high level through AGMs, Annual Dinners and Newsletters.

We work with local branches of UK based engineering institutions and the local institutions. This has raised awareness and the profile of the IMechE. Various events are organized by the Branches and the Groups with details mentioned on their respective pages.

India and Sri Lanka are now members of the Washington Accord and Pakistan is a provisional member.
