About Us

Who We Are?

In 1952 Agurchand Manmull Jain College was established by the magnanimity and munificence of Padma shri Mohanmullji Chordia through the Sri. S. S. Jain Educational Society, at the Inspiration of her Holiness 
Shri. Sayar Kanwarji Maharaj. Shri. Sri Prakasa, the then Governor of Madras Presidency, performed the auspicious task of inauguration on the 25th of June 1952 at the Jain Boarding Home premises in Madley Road, T.Nagar, chennai.

The College got shifted to its new campus in Meenambakkam in 1954. That was indeed a very unique occasion in which two great educationalists, late Dr. S. Radhakrishnan (the then Vice-President of India) and late Dr. A. Lakshmanaswami Mudaliar the then Vice-Chancellor of the University of Madras graced with their presence. The former laid the foundation stone and the latter presided over the function. The College celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 1977 the Golden Jubilee in 2002 and the Diamand Jubilee in June 2012.
