Director Message

Chairman's Message

An inherent desire has a way of becoming a dream and translating that dream into reality gives one an innate sense of happiness and achievement.

Years ago, whenever I visited my sons in school, I had a growing desire to start an educational initiative and it soon became a vision or a dream. At the dawn of the new millennium, came the opportune moment to realize this dream aided by the urge to give back to the society. Thus was born the JIS Group Educational Initiatives.

Now it's a proud moment for me and my team, when we see, thousands of students every year leaving the portals of our educational institutions looking ahead confidently to a bright future.

While establishing each of these institutions, the objective was to give opportunity to students from eastern India a high standard platform to learn and inherit domain skills which are completely career linked.

This has extended our reach from graduate and postgraduate studies in engineering & technology, computer applications, management studies, medical science, pharmacy, hospitality management, allied health science, diploma & certificate programmes in techno-commercial subjects and many more. In addition, we have also made our foray into quality health care services through our Dental College; which is the first private dental college in West Bengal.

Our vision is simple - Igniting Minds, Empowering Lives. The journey has just begun. Even my octogenarian physique fills up with invigorating energy for the days ahead. The next two-three years will perceive JIS Group's quantum leap, with several new educational initiatives in the areas of paramedical science, nursing, education, law, automobile engineering and finally the most ambitious project; a medical college with a modern hospital.

In these twelve years, I learnt a lot from life, and now I am confident that the Group is ready to become an initiative of national significance.

This dream will not have any boundaries.
