  • Since our institutions are located in Limda, 20 km away from Vaodara, saw the need for starting a Hospital which would provide medical facilties and treatment to underprivileged people in a surrounding area at competitive charges. This led to starting of Parul Sevashram Hospital, a 400 bedded multispecialty hospital. At present, owing to dedicated and concentrated efforts, have established a 300 bedded Parul Ayurveda Hospital offering Ayurved treatment and Jawaharlal Nehru Homoeopathic Medical College Hospital offering Ayurved and Homoeopathy treatment to needy and downtrodden respectively.

Have received Letter of Intent from respective councils.
  • In 2008, the hostel facilties in the premises could accommodate only upto 1500 students. Since the University has a presence of more than 25,000 students, made efforts in establishing state-of-the-art Hostel Facilties for the students and currently, the University has hostel facilties wherein more than 7,000 students are staying at present.
  • In order to attract meritorious students from across the globe, built relations with Dignitaries from various foreign countries and as a result, at present, 500 international students from 26 different countries such as Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Sudan, Nepal, Bhutan, Afghanistan etc…, are pursuing full time under graduate, post graduate and doctoral programmes in different Faculties of Parul University.

  • Have always believed that the world today is more in need of job creators and not job givers. Hence, helped put together a team of Mentors who could guide students towards becoming Entrepreneurs.
