HIstory of Matoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College
Matoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College of Arts & Commerce
Considering the demand for Sr. College from the local residents of Mamdapur and Neral, the Trust, in 2004 initiated the process to start Arts and Commerce Degree College at Mamdapur, Neral in the premises of the school
building, known as ʻDadasaheb Phadtare and Nadkarni Aaji Vidya Sankulʼ. The Government of Maharashtra, in 2008, approved the recommendation of Mumbai University to permit the Trust to start the Arts and Commerce College. Philanthropist, Shri. Jayantrao Tipnis, renowned Architect of Mumbai, donated a sum of Rs.21,00,000/- to the Trust to propagate the memory of his late mother Mrs. Sumati Chintamani Tipnis, by naming the College of Arts and Commerce College as ʻMatoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College of Arts and Commerceʼ. Thus, in 2008, the Trust started Matoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College of Arts and Commerce with 52 students at Mamdapur, Neral. Today, there are over 650 students in the College.
The Matoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College has started various advance computer courses such as Tally, Hardware Networking, DTP etc. not only for the students of Matoshree Sumati Chintamani Tipnis College but also for students living in the vicinity of Neral and Karjat, Dist. Raigad, Maharashtra. Considering continuous increase in the number of Students of Arts and Commerce College, the Trust decided to have a separate independent building in the precincts of ‘Dadasaheb Phadtare and NadkarniAaji’ VidyaSankul. The Trust has constructed a four storey structure which provides 12 classrooms for accommodating 120 students in each class room, Principal Room, Teachers Room, Library, Computer labs, Ladies Common Room and all required facilities, as per the Mumbai University norms, Government directions and NAAC requirements, at a cost of Rs. 8 Crores.
