Inauguration of the JIJABAI ACADEMIC BLOCK, February 2020

The new JIJABAI ACADEMIC BLOCK of Shivaji College is the result of years of hard work, brainstorming, ideas and innovative discussions.

The college conceived the idea for the building in 2009 and the project was first given to Rites. It has been an overwhelming journey from its conceptualization to its execution. Numerous meetings with various architects were held over months, exchanging ideas over the best possible facilities and latest technology that could be incorporated. It is these meetings and the consistent determination of the many involved members that have given the building its present shape.

The project was finally given over to the Asian Construction Company and the chief architect behind its construction is Ms. Sunita Makhija from Avesna Company. The members of the board who have contributed to this project are Dr. Vasan, Dr. Tejbir Rana, Dr. Ashok Shukla, Dr. B.S. Dahiya, Dr. Darshan Malik and Dr. Shiv Kumar Sahdev, Bursar Dr. Priyanka and Vice Principal Dr. Anita Kapur and from the administrative staff Mr. Praveen Kumar and Mr. Hemant Lamba.

The building in its current form boasts the latest modern facilities, state-of-the-art labs, classrooms, research labs and seminar halls. These are available to faculty from all departments and any faculty member who brings in a project would be able to gain full use of a research lab immediately. Shivaji College is the second college to offer facility for finance labs.

The various people who have contributed to the building include the HRD Minister, the Rites Company, the Asian Construction Company and architect Ms. Sunita Makhija

The building was inaugurated on February 29, 2020.
