Ramachandra Educational Trust was founded by Shri. B. Ramachandhiran to propagate literacy among the rural population. The role of education in the progress of humanity is immeasurable. The great leaps of human race have all had a common denominator-higher order of thinking. This is the message the Trust spreads among the people. This education cannot be acquired from textbooks within the confines of a classroom. It can only be achieved through an interactive approach which benefits both the learner and the learned as they explore and discover the unknown together.
As a first step in this direction Shri Venkateshwaraa Medical College Hospital was set up as the flagship institution of Shri Venkateshwaraa Group of Institutions under the Ramachandra Educational trust in 2005 with Mr.Ramachandhiran as the Chairman. The mustispeciality 750 bedded hospital with modern amenities and facilities was established to provide world class healthcare to people in and around Puducherry. With the introduction of Undergraduate course in medicine in 2007, the hospital took a significant step towards furthering the cause of education.
Over the years Shri Venkateshwaraa Group of Institutions has grown in a phased manner with the gradual introduction of additional courses and setting up of additional institutions in various streams. Today the Group has colleges that offer Nursing, Dental and Pharmacy courses making it possible for students in and around Puducherry to follow their dreams.
The Group wishes to march forward to create an ideal world wherein equality is a reality. The main aim is to impart knowledge through education. The ambitions of the trust are based on the views of great visionaries of the world who had dedicated their entire lives for the uplift of humanity.
