The Association For Performance Of The First Year Necessary Death Ceremonies Of The Parsi Zoroastrians

PUBLIC NOTICE

THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF THE FIRST YEAR NECESSARY DEATH
CEREMONIES OF THE PARSI ZOROASTRIANS.

A Society by the name of *The Association For Performance Of The First Year Necessary Death Ceremonies Of The Parsi Zoroastrians* was founded in the year 1942 for the purposes of performing the essential death ceremonies of Parsi Zoroastrian individuals who desire to perform the same, but do not have any relatives who will get it performed.

Presently considerable expenses are incurred for after death ceremonies and many of our brethren may not be aware of the ceremonies necessarily needed to be performed. The reasons for these are many, ignorance being one of them. There are Parsi Zoroastrians who do not have any heirs or for several other reasons harbor fear whether after their life time, essential death ceremonies will be performed or not for the purpose of peace of their Ruvan and it is the aim of the Society that the death ceremonies are performed of
the said individuals keeping in mind the sentiments attached to the Zoroastrian tenets. Presently, the activities of the Society are being revived based on the need of several Parsi/Irani Zoroastrians who have requested revival of the same.

*The Society is headed by Ervad Dr. Ramiyar Karanjia, Chairman of the Association and ably guided by:*

1. *Ervad Aspandiar Dadachanji, Trustee, Panthaky Vatcha Gandhi Agiary.*
2. *Ms. Shernaz D. Mehta, Trustee, Vice- Chairman Zoroastrian Co-operative Bank ltd.*
3. *Mr. Manek J. Kalyaniwalla, Trustee, Advocate & Solicitor High Court, Bombay.*
4. *Ervad Pakzad Y Katpitia, Administrator, Panthaky Mithaiwala Agiary.*

The Society is in talks with various Agiaries/Atash Behrams for a tie up for the performance of the first year After Death Ceremonies of the Zoroastrians, according to the area in which they live, and even the Zoroastrian individuals living outside Mumbai/India can avail of the Scheme offered by the Society.

*The Society has presently two Options. It covers the essential after death ceremonies for one year including Muktad and is presently priced at ` 40,000/-. Option 2 is the economical scheme priced at ` **25,000/-, further details can be obtained from the Administrator from the Association’s office.*
