M.C.Kejriwal Vidyapeeth (MCKV) was established 20 years ago as an English medium school on 15th of June, 1997 at Liluah, Howrah, West Bengal, by M. C. Kejriwal Charity Trust (established in 1976) in fond memory of the grandfather, the late Mirzamal Kejriwal, and the father, the late Chhagan Kejriwal, of Shri S.S.Kejriwal, the Chairman and founder of the Group. As time passed and citizens' demand generated by goodwill for MCKV increased, (which is now the prime ISC School for boys in this industrial area), Shri S. S. Kejriwal was instrumental in launching, in due course, the other institutions which collectively constitute the MCKV Group of Institutions.
In addition to extending continuous support to the hospital established by his late father at Ramgarh, Rajasthan, Shri S. S. Kejriwal felt the strong urge of creating unique institutions in the densely populated area of GT Road at Liluah in the district of Howrah, not very far from Belurmath (the HQ of Internationally famed Rama Krishna Mission). At the time, though Howrah was considered the twin city of Calcutta, there was a dearth of technical colleges with of exception of the old Bengal Engineering College. A philanthropist at heart, he started the first private engineering college in the district with AICTE approval and affiliation from Vidyasagar University, Midnapore. Now MCKV Institute of Engineering (MCKVIE) has gained the reputation of being one of the best technical colleges in India. Simultaneously, his concerns about affordable health care for the masses led to the establishment of a diagnostic centre at Liluah, and thus was born MCKV Health & Medicare. Later, he also explored the possibility of spreading education in the neighboring state of Jharkhand, and subsequently acquired a huge area of rural land in Madhupur, Deoghar District, Jharkhand to run Madhusthali Vidyapeeth, a co-ed residential school, affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations for the ICSE and ISC examinations. In Madhupur, the MCKV Group has also launched two additional institutions: the Madhusthali Institute of Teacher Training and the Madhusthali Institute of Paramedical Sciences. MITT is catering for NCTE approved B.Ed, D.El.Ed and University approved B.Lib.Info.Sc programs whereas MIPS is for professional courses on different Paramedical courses. All the three institutions at Madhupur Campus are progressing day by day and Group is thinking to develop the campus area with more fruitful courses in future.
The MCKV Group of Institutions will serve the nation and the world by nurturing talented, broad-minded, and educated students, by conducting high quality academic and research programs, developing breakthrough technologies, and preserving and disseminating knowledge characterized by a unique blend of curricular and experiential content delivered within a student-centric culture.
In keeping with the founding vision of Shri S.S. Kejriwal, our community fosters personal discovery and growth, encourages scholarship and creativity across a broad range of knowledge, and engages men and women from every segment of society in this mission.
We pursue understanding beyond the limitations of existing knowledge, ideology, and disciplinary structure.
We affirm the values of continual cultivation and enrichment of the human mind and spirit to individuals and society.
