The Calcutta and Mofussil Scots Society was formed in 1954 with the object of organising social gatherings amongst Scots ladies and gentlemen associated with Calcutta and the Mofussil (a Hindustani word for surrounding district). Those with business links to Calcutta could also join. The society is based in Dundee. Activities have included cocktail parties, golf outings, theatre visits, curry lunches and dinner/dances.
