Late Shri Shyam Sunder Kejriwal, a prominent entrepreneur and philanthropist, strongly felt that the development of India as a modern, progressive, prosperous and self-reliant country depended entirely on the creation of a well-informed and educated citizenry. It was with this vision that he established MCKV Institute of Engineering on 03 September 1999, and created, with a missionary zeal, an institution that would, one day, under his Chairmanship, be ranked among the pioneering Engineering Institution in the Kolkata-Howrah region.
With his commitment to the cause of education in the country unabated, Late Shri S. S. Kejriwal also established the M. C. Kejriwal Vidyapith adjacent to MCKVIE, Madhusthali Vidyapeeth (a co-educational residential school), Madhusthali Institute of Teacher Training, and Madhusthali Institute of Paramedical Sciences in Madhupur, Jharkhand.
Concerned about the negative impact of modern life-style on people’s health, Late Shri S. S. Kejriwal ventured into the domain of healthcare by establishing MCKV Health and Medicare in Liluah, Howrah, in addition to supporting a hospital in Ramgarh, Rajasthan, set up by his father, the late Shri Chagganlal Kejriwal. Beyond his role as the Chairman of the MCKV Group of Institutions, Late Shri S. S. Kejriwal served on the board of trustees of several reputed institutions of Kolkata and Howrah.
The entire MCKV community mourns the loss of Late Shri S. S. Kejriwal, and prays that his beautiful soul rest in peace. May God also grant the members of the Kejriwal family strength and courage to bear this immeasurable loss.
