The Rotary Club of Bombay was formed on 19th March 1929. Of the 38 charter members of the club in Bombay, 37 were non-Indians. The only Indian was Sir Phiroz Sethna, a legislative member, who later served as District Governor (1937-’38).

After Rotary Club of Bombay was chartered, Rotary movement grew in Gujarat, Maharashtra and nearby areas. It also grew in other Indian States as well as in neighbouring countries.

Between 1929 till 1970, these clubs were structured in various zones & districts several times to accommodate the growth of Rotary movement worldwide. Then, RI District 314 came into existence on 1st July 1970 with a membership of 1702 in 34 clubs.
