About Indira Group:
Indira Group of Institutes, Pune (IGI) has been standing on a singular pillar of trust from the day it was founded in the year 1994. Indira Group entered to its 25th year i.e. 'Silver Jubilee Year' on 5th Sept 2018 and now looking forward to the year long celebrations.
Dr Tarita Shankar (Chairperson - IGI) had seen in her mind's eye the tallest summit she wanted to scale when she stepped into the world of education by setting up the banner of "Shree Chanakya Education Society". She found an able ally in the family itself - her younger brother, Prof Chetan Wakalkar (Group Director - IGI) and they never looked back thereafter. During the course of the long and arduous journey, several others joined in and became its important constituents. Dr Tarita Shankar and Prof Chetan Wakalkar became the torchbearers of this inspired team where each one put in sincere effort in their individual way to attain a common goal.
Unrelenting initiatives by the management team at Indira led to adding of multi-disciplines such as Management, Information Technology, Pharmacy, Commerce, Science, Engineering, Architecture, Acting and Mass Communication to the group and growth has been as deep as it has been wide. With 12 institutions, IGI now offers education right from Kindergarten to Doctorate level studies.
