Seth Anandram Jaipuria

Padmabhushan Seth Mangturamji  Jaipuria (1901-1978), who founded the College in his father’s name, Seth Anandram Jaipuria, wished the institution to grow into a centre of unbound academic excellence by fostering a spirit of multiculturalism reflective of India’s diversity in unity. Accordingly, the VISION and MISSION of the College have been formulated as follows:


  • The College Logo pronounces Vidya Amritam Bhava. Knowledge fuels  the progress of humanity beyond life. Thus AMRITA might be tested through VIDYA.


  • To provide easy access to higher education with an array of varied streams and subjects.
  • To maintain gender equality by running three shifts: girls’ section in the morning shift, co-education at day and boys’ section in the evening shift.
  • To promote a mass approach to education by bringing within its fold students of all castes and class and also of varied linguistic and intellectual abilities.
  • To be at par with modern educational policies by laying equal emphasis on skill-development and core-values.
  • To pursue holistic development in a sustainable manner.
