150 years old, and still going strong

November 19, 2008

Today, Standard Chartered India is headquartered in a beautiful heritage building in south Mumbai. This has been the bank's Indian headquarters for most of the past century.

Designed by Frederick Williams Stevenson, an acclaimed nineteenth century architect, the sandstone building has exquisite, high-arched entrances and gleaming white domes. Standard Chartered moved into the building in 1902, after operating out of a rented premise for close to half a century.

This is the building that is featured in the commemorative stamp, which costs Rs 5.
