P.K. Desai Kelavanai Mandal
We have pleasure to introduce you our reputed college of Olpad Taluka, Dist.Surat which was established by a freedom fighter, Co. Operative and Soscial leader late Shri Pramodbhai Kanaiyalal Desai, elder brother of late Ex- Chief Minister of Gujarat Late Shri Hitendrabhai Kanaiyalal Desai in the year 1991-92. The college is affiliated toVeer Narmad South Gujarat University, Surat and governed as per its rules and regulations and also Government Of Gujarat.
Till 1947, there was not a single Secondary School in the taluka.To commemorate Independence, late Shri Pramodbhai Kanaiyalal Desai decided to establish Secondary education schools in the region. When this dream was materialized, need for higher education was felt. Since Olpad is the socially, economically backward , most of the parents could not afford to send their children to Surat and they had to leave the education after secondary school. Considreing these factors, Shri Pramodbhai Kanaiyalal Desai founded the college in the year 1991-92.
The aim of Olpad college has been remarkably achieved and most of the boys and girls of Olpad taluka have been benefited. When the college was started, there were only 150 students, but today, the strength has reached to 2500. Ours is the only one educational institution in the whole Olpad taluka offering UG/PG degrees in Arts and Commerce. It is also observed that every year the number of students are increasing. The college also gets good results in all examinations. Our students are also performing well in the field of extra curriculum activities such as sports, culture etc. Educational seminars and lectures are also being arranged on different subjects.
