With an International reputation of being a knowledge based economy, the Indian
government is striving hard to meet global expectations. But in pursuit of excellence
the dice of OET has moved across the city of Jamnagar to now bring it up on the
map of the world that Jamnagar excels in Education too. India, once the land of
universities like Taxila and Nalanda, saw a complete paradigm change in its education
sector under the British Raj. The genesis of Indian Education, as we know it today,
can be tracked back to the early 20th Century when the British first introduced
the idea of western education in India. The support of reformist politicians, with
the goal of emancipation of the Indian masses at heart, led to the inception of
primary, secondary and tertiary schools and colleges in India.
On 14th March 1986, a charitable Trust "The Oshwal Education Trust" ventured
into the field of Education to undertake the great task of setting up an All English
Medium Institutions in order to provide quality education to the students of Jamnagar.
Jamnagar, then, was a small progressive town and a business hub, but did not have
any proper educational institutions to cater to the varied requirements of the natives.
Shri Jaysukhlal Hathi voiced the feelings of many concerned parents of Jamnagar
about the dearth of educational facilities and the urgent need of the people to
bridge the demand and supply mismatch for an English Education Center. Shri Lakhamsi
Govindji Haria was quick to respond and declared a donation of Rs.Eleven lacs. This
amount has today metamorphosed into a full fledged Higher Secondary School catering
to the needs of nearly 2500 students from LKG to Higher Secondary.
The Mahant of Anandabava Ashram, Shri Deviprasad Maharajji inaugurated the Kindergarten
school on Dec, 4th 1981. The plot was acquired and in June 1986 the construction
of the school building was started and 440 students were enrolled. As years went
by and realizing requirements of the people of Jamnagar and near by areas the Oshwal
Education Trust established Shri Gosar Hansraj Gosrani College of Commerce and Shri
Dharamshi Devraj Nagda - BBA. College in June 1998. This was followed by the approval
granted by AICTE in 2002 to start the MBA program under Shri Jaysukhlal Vadhar Institute
of Management Studies.
Keeping in view the needs of the modern generation the Trust started Smt. Chandramaniben
Zaverchand Meghji Gosrani – BCA College in 2003, followed by starting Shri Zaverchand
Mulchand Shah P.T.C.College with hostel facilities for both Boys & Girls. Soon after
this in 2006 the PGDCA course was launched. The trust then ventured into starting
Shri Keshavji Bharmal Sumaria M.C.A.College in 2008.
Thus you would see that the Trust launched all the premium specialized undergrad
courses under its vanguard with the goal of meeting education requirements for students
from various walks of life with diverse areas of interest and ambition. With management
programs ranging from diploma in computer applications to masters and post graduation
diplomas in various disciplines Oshwal Education Trust is set out to meet an overall
professional education requirement for the youth. All programs launched by Oshwal
Education Trust are programs accessible to students nationally and internationally.
The society owes a lot to the Trust and its magnanimous donors.
