How to turn off Chrome desktop notifications on Windows?

I am an avid Firefox user but have been using Chrome web browser a lot lately. Partly because I like it’s new minimalist material design interface which is inspired from Android.

Of late, Chrome the internet browser has been implementing a lot of new features which make it similar to an independent internet based OS running inside Windows or Mac systems. One of them is the ability for websites to show update notifications on your desktop even if you do not have Chrome running.
