Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal is a Public Charitable Trust registered under the Society’s Registration Act and Bombay Public Trust Act. The SVKM has always been committed to the cause of providing high quality education at various levels. From its humble beginnings in 1934, when it took over the Rashtriya Shala, a school established in 1921 in the wake of the National Movement, the Mandal today has grown into a big educational complex imparting high-level education to more than 40,000 students.
The ethos of the Mandal, which is marked by patriotic fervor, selfless service and the spirit of indigenous enterprise, has its genesis in the days of India’s struggle for freedom. These values permeate all the institutions set up by the Mandal and are the guiding principles for all of them.
Over the past 75 years, the Mandal has developed a large educational complex in Vile Parle, With a strong vision and passion for being the pioneers of the modern education system, all SVKM institutes are state of the art, with ever expanding facilities and infrastructure. From its beginning with the Swadeshi Movement, the Mandal has now grown into an educationalfoundation promoting global thinking consistent with national interest and promoting the values, professionalism, social sensitivity and dynamic entrepreneurship.

In the midst of the thickly populated suburbs of Mumbai, the students and the staff are provided with a relatively pollution free atmosphere, along with good canteen facilities. Such an atmosphere is highly conducive to academics.
The college is affiliated to the University of Mumbai. The Degree and Junior College together has more than 10600 students, 227 teaching staff and 170 non-teaching staff. In spite of the phenomenal growth in the number of students, the standard of discipline is well maintained and the student-teacher relations are absolutely cordial.
The college provides personal counseling to the students as well. A state of the art, fully air conditioned college library was newly inaugurated. With its vast and eclectic collection of books and journals, it quenches the thirst for knowledge of both staff and students. Many of the students have excelled in their examinations and have secured University Merit Ranks.
The college has produced many top executives working with reputed business houses including multinational companies in India and abroad. Many of the students have gone on to become successful industrialists, academicians, sportspersons and famous film & theatre personalities. Students are also helped in their placements in industries.
The college has always been conscious of its role as a constructive and responsible part of the larger society. Thus it gives utmost attention to the overall development of the personality of students.
Hence it has initiated the Honours Programme & Performance Improvement Programme at the Degree College level and in-house CET guidance programme and All Round Development Programme at the Junior college level. Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular, extra-curricular activities and sports.
Its consistent and unstinting efforts in this direction are borne out by the fact that students enter the college, immature, uncertain, bewildered, but leave its portals much more mature, self-confident and focused, ready to lead rich lives of their own even while enriching that of the society.
