In 2015, the Hinduja Group, which is headed by Shri.
Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja's four sons; Srichand, Gopichand, Prakash and Ashok will complete a century. The Group, which has estimated worldwide revenues of
several billions wants to usher in the 100th year in style.
Their objective is to create a totally unique model. That unique model calls for big investments in high-growth core sectors like oil and gas, power, infrastructure, real estate, telecom, education and healthcare, most of which will be made in India.
K.P.B. Hinduja College of Commerce was established in 1974 by late Shri Parmanand Deepchand Hinduja who was a harmonious blend of philanthropy and mercantile activities. The illustrious man believed in setting aside a portion of the profits from his businesses for charitable activities, especially in the field of education and healthcare, which he considered to be the fundamental right of every human being. He said "My dharma is to work so that I can give". His concern led him to establish the Smt. P. D. Hinduja Trust in 1944 under the aegis of which the college was established. The institution functions under the guidance of the Hinduja Foundation which is a part of the Hinduja Group that was established in 1914.
K.P.B. Hinduja College of Commerce at the age of 36 years is a young and promising
adult with well-defined goals and aspirations. The generous support extended by the Management, the merit of the faculty,
the academic excellence of the students (Average Results: 99% at H.S.C, 88% at T.Y.B.Com. and 100 % at Self-financing levels),
tie-ups with leading academic institutions, both national and international high ratings in nationwide surveys (In an India Today - Org Marg - Survey on colleges which
was published in the India Today's issue dated June 2010, the college ranked No. 1st among the Commerce colleges in Mumbai and ranked No. 8th all over India) ,
gratify and enthuse us, especially since we at Hinduja College believe "Sky is not the limit".
Over the years the college has literally and figuratively grown from strength to strength. It started with student strength of 400 in 1974 and has reached a figure of about 7000 at this point in time, while the number of teachers has increased from 12 up to 105. The college which started with a single Commerce course today offers 41 courses from the Higher Secondary up to the Doctorate level and includes both the Commerce, Science and Arts streams.
