Sarva Vidhyalya Kelavani Mandal, Kadi was established in 1919 by the social reformer and patron of education venerable Shri Chhaganlal Pitambardas Patel, popularly known as 'Chhaganbha'. Initially, it was established as the hostel for students. " Do good, Good will be done to you (Kar Bhala Hoga Bhala)" was the guiding sprit of the college. Since last 85 years, this college has revolutionized the society by continuously providing very effective education. Committed to the cause of service for the nation, this college has expanded its scope, as per the need of the time, up to Gandhinagar The college, since, 1993 has added many colleges at Kadi and Gandhinagar campuses due to "Dynamic and Devoted Chairman Shri Maneklal M Patel, popularly known as 'Saheb'. The secretaries of the Mandal and others are also devoting their valuable time for the growth of the college.
To ensure that in the "opportunity era" of Information Technology, the students of Kadi and its neighborhood area need not go to other parts of Gujarat or out side Gujarat to build up their professional careers, BCA programme was started in year 2000 to provide higher education in the fields of computer studies and management. With the approval of the AICTE, MCA and MBA programmes are also being offered at the Campus since 2001 and 2002 respectively and in June 2003 BBA Programme was started to provide the students with Management Education. . The colleges offering programmes in BCA,BBA, MCA, MBA and PGDCA are all Affiliated to Kadi Sarva Vishwavidyalaya University, Gandhinagar. Sarva Vidyalaya Kelevani Mandal has at present Kadi and Gandhinagar Campuses and about 40,000 students pursue thier education various programmes. Such a phenomenal growth of repute has actually given these colleges a place of pride among the colleges across Gujrat.
In its remarkable history of nurturing educational college, the SVKM trust has in last couple of years paved a new way by establishing professional and higher education colleges.Considering the need to provid excellence leading to evolve its own work culture and identity, this college is established as the stand alone environment. This may not be cost- effective. However, it is envisioned that this college must grow to its full potential. In the matters of dynamics of designed changes in curriculum, responsiveness to changes in professional practice and reaching out for strong industry-college interaction, such college needs internal autonomy in the first instance. The Trust is committed to provide full support for this purpose.
The role of the Trust is that of the facilitator. The responsibility of college building and growth is on the shoulders of the Faculty and Students. Their collective commitment, devotion and integrity will be essential and always needed.Eventually, it will be for the students to put this college on the national map. I wish this slightly arduous task is accomplished with the first batch itself shining out.
To conclude, I would express my sentiment about the senior most students of the campus who kept up the spirit of Late Shri Chhaganbha who used to cite the Proverb "Kar Bhala, Hoga Bhala" and are continuously setting higher standards of performance discipline to be admired.
Shri. Vallabhbhai M. Patel,
President of K.S.V.Gandhinagar.
