Rotary in India continued to be active forming new clubs and soon new Districts had to be formed to prevent the old geographical areas becoming too unwieldy. Calcutta found itself in Rotary District 53. The District was unique in that it covered in those days 18 Rotary clubs located in no less than three countries viz., India, East Pakistan and Burma. The Indian Territory included West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, Assam and a portion of Madhya Pradesh.
In May 1953 District Governor S. C. Chatterjee of Rangoon held a District Assembly at Calcutta. The 53rd District's sixth conference gathered in Calcutta in February 1954 under District Governor Major S. C. Dutt who was a Calcutta Rotarian and was president of his club in 1951-52.. At this conference Rtn Lawly Sen of Patna was elected District Governor 1954-55. Lawly was one of the most popular Rotarians of the District and a founder member of the Patna Rotary club. The most enjoyable feature of the conference was the visit of a very large number of delegated from East Pakistan.
Following this conference an All-India Governors' conference was held at Calcutta, the Convenor being Past Governor Dr. A. C. Ukil of Calcutta and the Secretary, Past President J. K. Deb of Calcutta. A District assembly met at Patna in April 1954 and a large contingent of Calcutta Rotarians attended. The Assembly elected Rotarian J. F. Bartos, president of the Calcutta Club 1953-54, as Chairman of the Rotary Golden Anniversary Committee at District level. The District could not have selected a better man, as since he joined the Calcutta Rotary Club, he set a fine example to others not only in his hard work for Rotary, but also in his vocation. He and his colleagues from Batanagar, several of whom were Rotarians, served Rotary truly and well.
