About Guru Nanak Vaidyak Society (GNVS)


The institution of Guru Nanak Vidyak Society was born just around the time of our independence in August 1947. The social and political upheavals surrounding partition re-established the social and geographical composition of the two countries (India and Pakistan) which were once together. People migrated in thousands to a safer heaven. Bombay then (even now too) was (is) a safe place to live and flourish. Hundreds of Punjabi families from Punjab, the North West frontier province and Sind took shelter in Koliwada area in Mumbai. The refugees increased in numbers over time. There was a dire need to establish an educational institution to cater the needs of the Punjabi people. The contribution of the minority community towards social causes such as education then began. They supplement the role of the state in economic and social spheres.

The Guru Nanak Vidyak Society was established in July 1947 with S. Partap Singh as its first President. The ideals of Sikh religion such as equality of men before the Divine, Universality of God, Absoluteness of Truth and Courage have inspired and guided the activities of the Society. It was two small old barracks and tin sheds that housed the first few batches of students. The society has grown substantially from such humble beginning over time. The society values excellence and leaves no stone unturned to achieve this valuable goal.

The society has been honored with the Government of Maharashtra’s Award for Best Educational Institution, 2003 for its outstanding contribution in the educational and social fields.

The broad base of the educational institutions under the umbrella of the Society at lower levels produced vast number of students who needed to be accommodated in an institution of higher education. Forty educational institutions have been established by the Society. It comprises a Management College, a B. Ed college, a degree college, three Junior colleges and thirty-four primary and secondary schools. It has, over the years strived to maintain high degree and standards of education while earning a name only a few good institutions can boast of.
