He had the support of his able fellow professionals. The object was to keep up the high tradition of the Medical Profession as well as to create a brotherly feeling among the Members.

It was titled 'The South Kanara District Medical Association' .The organization was affiliated to Indian Medical Association in 1945, and was called The South Kanara Branch of the Indian Medical association'.

Our Branch Association endeavors to project the rights, privileges and interests of its members, and promotes the discussion of clinical and professional matters.
