Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal, Anand
Shree Ramkrishna Seva Mandal is a registered society and a public trust. It was established in the year 1945-54, as a multidimensional experiment. It was not only an educational trust providing institutes from primary to research level education, but it also had a strong medical and socio- economic implication for surrounding rural area .
Both Shree Ramkrishna Paramhansa and his ardent disciple, Swami Vivekanand strongly believed and adopted Lord Buddha's sermon- to practice in life. Vivekanand with his teaching always aimed at human welfare. Adopting the same principle, Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal initially began with providing medical facilities to the residents of the surrounding rural area at "no" or "subsidized" cost. In that early post-independence era, when proper medical aid was a distant dream, Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal through its generous assistance proved to be a boon to the common man.

Shree Gordhanbhai Patel, (Hon. Secretory)adorably called Vakil Saheb, and Shri Natvarlal Dave (President),the founder trustees of the Mandal, shared the most popular view that development of an independent India and its villages can be affected only through properly trained individuals. Hence establishing an academic institute was a top priority. In this context, Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal in March 1963 pioneered to establish Anand Arts College. This development marked the birth of the first college of Anand. Slowly and steadily, various institutions beginning from kindergarten to graduate and post-graduate courses were launched, making progress under the flag of Shri Ramkrishna Seva Mandal.
While Shree Ramkrishna Seva Mandal just began with the modest act of charity of providing medical aid to the less privileged people of the surrounding rural area, today it is shouldering the responsibilities of various institutions providing academic training in various streams of education as well as technical and professional education.
