Shree Chanakya Education Society

Shree Chanakya Education Society’s “Indira Group of Institutes”, Pune was established in 1994, with the explicit vision to provide sustainable impetus to the corporate and entrepreneurial abilities in the youth. The realization that a robust framework of education is indispensable for the growth of global leaders, the visionary, Dr. Tarita Shankar, Chairperson, Indira Group, integrated her pursuit of excellence and articulated educational institutions, known as Indira Group of Institutes (IGI), which imbibe human excellence and demonstrate strong social values, with a single minded pursuit of developing the youth to become business leaders.

By consistently providing quality education over the past few decades, institutes at Indira Group are now considered as one of the best institutes in Pune. At a time when India was struggling to put its economy back on its feet after the nation having pawned the “family jewels” just to keep afloat, Dr. Tarita Shankar sensed that education too would have to become more broad-based and more vocational in nature if India wants to stand up to the world competition in quality and price for its products, The then Finance Minister had prescribed for the economy and so, in 1994, began a saga of growth and quality in education; a story that is just reaching its zenith with 14 full fledge Institutes registering a strong presence on Pune's educational horizon. Since its inception, the Institutes managed by SCES, have maintained high academic standards, and have successfully provided trained manpower to the industrial and services sector of the country. These institutes are now listed amongst the top colleges not just in Pune, but also in Maharashtra and India.

Today, the Indira Group is a highly regarded educational consortium in India, offering top-notch education in Management, Engineering, Architecture, Pharmacy, Mass Communication, Commerce, Science, IT, Aviation, Music and Schooling and is known for its innovative teaching methods and holistic educational approach.
