An Introduction to The Institution


Bhagini Seva Mandir Kumarika Stree Mandal started Nootan Mahila College in the Arts stream in June 1972. In June 1976, following the pattern of the 10+2+3 educational system, Junior College was started.

Shree Chandulal Nanavati Women’s Institute and Girl’s High School Trust took over the management of the Nootan Mahila College in 1978. The college received permanent affiliation to the S.N.D.T. Women’s University in 1979. Now this college is well-known by the name of Maniben Nanavati Women’s College and the Junior College by the name of Tapiben Chhaganlal Lalji Valia Junior College.

Even since its inception, the College has adopted a totally integrated approach to the development of women in all spheres- social and economic. The ultimate goal is to enable women to become good citizens and housewives and at the same time gain economic independence. The college also offers extension education in the form of various certificate courses in Home Science and Diploma Courses for the women who for various reasons cannot take up full-time degree courses. It is affiliated to SNDT Women’s University, Mumbai, which has an all India Jurisdiction. It is Not affiliated to Baroda or any other University.

The commerce stream was introduced by starting B.Com. in 1978, thereby opening up new opportunities for women in the world of commerce.

Within a span of more than three decades, the college has developed into an educational institution which is fulfilling its proper role in the field of formal as well as extension education.
