Kishinchand Chellaram College is one of the premier institutions affiliated to the University of Mumbai and recognized by Government of Maharashtra. It was established in 1954 by the Hyderabad (Sind) National Collegiate Board. The college was awarded permanent affiliation by the University of Mumbai within a record span of two years.
Over the years K.C. has established itself as one of the leading colleges in Mumbai. This fact is well supported by excellent results, both at HSC as well as at the University examinations and the number of laurels won by the students.
The Motto of the College is ‘SALVATION THROUGH KNOWLEDGE’. This motto was selected from ancient Sanskrit scriptures. ‘Knowledge’ in the highest sense means acquiring wisdom & understanding, which in turn leads man to ”Moksha” or Salvation.
K.C. prides itself in motivating students to achieve excellence not only in academic fields but also in co-curricular and extracurricular activities. With Dr. Hemlata K Bagla as the Principal, the Signature Line of the College could well be – “Excellence – the only Compelling Option.”
