SRBS College

Seth Ram Bahadur Singh Gujarati College was started in June 1999 in response to an urgent need for more institutions of higher education in the busy commercial town of Cochin.The college was established in the unaffiliated sector with one Predegree batch (Commerce) and one B.Com batch and was the fulfilment of Shri Cochin Gujarati Mahajan's desire to enter into the field of higher education.

Shri Cochin Gujarati Mahajan is more than a hundred and twenty five years old. Its members are predominantly businessmen. However, doing business was not their only preoccupation. They have always been aware of their social obligations and responsibilities. So they started an aided English Medium UP School way back in 1921and later an unaided English Medium High School in 1963.The Mahajan is also running two pre-primary institutions. All these institutions are doing very well.

It is against this rich experience of managing educational institutions, the Gujarati Mahajan decided to venture into the field of higher education by starting Seth Ram Bahadur Singh Gujarati College. Late Shri. Ram Bahadur Thakur ,the leading businessman of Jew town ,came forward and contributed the most for starting the college. The Mahajan had been trying to get the college affiliated to the M.G.University right from its inception. Thanks to the bold decision of the then Government of Kerala in liberalising the education sector from rigid rules, Mahatma Gandhi University granted affiliation to the college to start self financing degree programme from the academic year 2002-03. It is the desire of the Gujarati Mahajan to start innovative courses in future and make this institution a centre of excellence.

Courses of Study

The College offers the following courses of study

  • B. Com (Taxation)
  • B BA Bachelor of Business Administration

Importance of computer studies cannot be underestimated in the changing global scenario.

He can choose any module of his liking- from fundamentals to advanced programme and must undergo training compulsorily at the JMSGICS(Jitu &Mukesh ShahGujarati Institute of Computer Studies) attached to the college.
