Parul Arogya Seva Mandal Trust : Parul Arogya Seva Mandal was established as a
registered Trust in 1990 by Dr Jayesh K Patel, a man of great vision and acumen fundamental
and has gone much ahead in achieving its goals. The trust strives to ensure the
rights of the most unprivileged strata of society.
The Trust is registered as a charitable Trust with committed founder-members as the Trustees.
The members of the Trust have a firsthand experience in the pains and banes of society
in terms of health, education and economy. They have strived individually and met
with success in alleviating the pains of society. After having worked independently,
they finally decided to come together on one platform. Their foresight assured these
visionaries that such concerted efforts will make them more competent to understand
the social problems and to relieve society from its ills & evils. Hence all of them joined hands
and started the Trust as a charitable organization running several well-fare programmes such
as educational institutes and charitable hospitals. Providing education and employment
to the downtrodden and the needy people was the noble aim which kindled the spirits
The insight that ‘knowledge is the most solid means of empowerment’ motivates the
Trust in all its endeavors. As to the major educational activities by the promoting
body, there are many. The Trust has three Homoeopathic Medical Colleges, one Engineering
College, two Polytechnics and one Institute of Hotel Management & Catering Technology
in various districts of Gujarat. Along with these educational institutes, the Trust also has two Pharmacy
Colleges, MCA and MBA programmes and an Institute of Post Graduate Diploma in Management.
It was Parul Arogya Seva Mandal Trust which took initiative & leadership when there
was no self-finance Institution for higher & professional education till 1993 and
thousands of students had to go to other states for their higher studies. It was
only through the strenuous efforts of this Trust that the policy of self-finance
Institutes was introduced by the Government of Gujarat and the first self-finance
college of the Gujarat State- Ahmedabad Homoeopathic Medical College at Ahmedabad-
was established by Parul Arogya Seva Mandal Trust in the year 1993.
The success story of the Ahmedabad Homeopathic Medical College encouraged the trustees
to start other technical and professional programs like Engineering, Management,
Computer Applications, Architecture, Social Work, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Ayurveda
etc. The most interesting feature is that all of these Institutes are approved by
the councils concerned.
