About Poddar Group
Poddar Motto “Providing Education with a Purpose”
Poddar Group of Institutions, a synonym of vibrancy, dynamism and enriched positivity began its journey way back in 1998 under the thought-provoking vision of Dr. Anand Poddar. “Education with a Purpose to Shape a Better Future” remains the motto of the Group. With the advent of industrialization and ever-increasing demand for professionally trained skilled youth, our core focus has been to conceptualize the ideology of what lies beyond academics: skill development, entrepreneurship, and nurturing an eco-system leading to the generation of self-sustained youth of ’New India’.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” The magnificent journey of Poddar Group of Institutions began in 1998. In the words of Founder and Chairman of the Group, Dr. Anand Poddar, “In spite of being from a business class family, I was working as a trainer because the need to strengthen the Youth was always in the back of my mind. Even in the 5th decade of India’s independence, young graduates were struggling to even get a job. Specialization in every sector was being introduced in India. I figured out that the lack of significant and innovative programs were the reasons. My heart cried out to see that the Youth with so much potential are not getting what they deserve.
That was a golden instance when Poddar Group of Institutions was formed with the aim to foster learning and achieve excellent standards of quality education keeping pace with rapidly changing technologies and best practices.
Thus the Institution was established to bridge the gap by emphasizing value-based programs to make students corporate-ready and train them for startups.
The Group has been envisioned to impart Purposeful education initiating from Primary school education, various UG and PG programs to high-end research programs (Ph.D., Incubate Technical Support Programs) thereby catering to both industry-specific and employability options encompassing multiple facets of divergent disciplines. Colleges of the Group focus on Best Innovative Academic practices reinforced with student mentoring and learning & support activities through various clubs and cells. Our Alumni are carrying rich values and virtues making us proud by scaling newer heights in various facets of their careers.
