Shri. P.K. Das

The Founder

Whenever we hear the name of Nehru College, immediately the name of our Founder Chairman late P.K. Das comes to our mind. Our Chairman’s name is synonymous with Nehru Colleges which stand as Hall Mark of Quality in the field of Higher Education.

Starting from scratch in 1968, this great leader, spent each ounce of his energy and sweat to establish 12 prestigious institutions in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Through his hard toil, sweat, firm determination and strict self discipline, he established Nehru College of Aeronautics and Applied Sciences at Kuniamuthur, Coimbatore. Besides this college, he established four engineering colleges, one Arts & Science college, one Pharmacy College, one Aviation Institute and one Super Specialty Hospital and three Management Colleges in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. He was hardly 29 years of age in 1968, when he started his career as an Academician at Coimbatore.

The meteoric rise of this great personality in the field of technical and higher education was phenomenal and great. A humble beginning was made despite innumerable difficulties and insurmountable obstacles he had to face with, he didn’t budge an inch, but forged ahead with firm determination and iron will, to accomplish success after success. Year after year, he was reaping rich dividends and accolades. He was standing like Colossus. The flag ship institution namely Nehru College of Aeronautics and Applied Sciences, has emerged as a unique institution this country. This college is the only one with so many specializations in Aeronautical Maintenance Engineering. In the field of Applied Sciences, several branches for B.Sc. degree courses in Aeronautical Engineering, Electronics, Computer Science and Avionics and MBA in Air Line and Airport Management were started there. The quality maintained here speaks volumes about the Founder Chairman late P.K. Das.

He added golden feather to his cap, by starting a huge and prestigious Nehru College of Arts and Science in a new campus at Thirumalayampalayam. There are two Engineering Colleges at Thirumalayampalayam and Kaliapuram, in the outskirts of Coimbatore. He started Nehru College of Engineering and Research Center and Nehru College of Pharmacy at Pambady in Kerala. In the year 2008, he started Jawaharlal College of Engineering and Technology and in 2010 Jawaharlal Aviation Institute was also started at Lakkidi. A Super Specialty Hospital named as P.K. Das Institute of Medical Sciences has been established at Vaniamkulam. All these have been conceived and nurtured under his close supervision. The efficient functioning and quality maintained in these institutions are testimonies to his diligence, greatness and success.

Though he left us, in the year 2009, he has groomed his sons Adv. Dr. P. Krishnadas, the present Chairman and Managing Trustee and Dr. P. Krishnakumar, CEO & Secretary, Nehru Group of Institutions at Coimbatore into successful academicians and administrators. They have taken over the reins of administration of these institutions in an admirable manner. The Chairman had foreseen the birth of a great University in the name of Jawaharlal Nehru University.

The might and strength of our beloved Chairman are etched deeply and are eloquently evident from the functioning of these institutions. He was a simple, humble, noble and straight forward person, with aristocratic behavioral traits. He was a tall, handsome and commanding personality not only physically, but also intellectually and behaviorally.
