Parul Arogya Seva Mandal Trust was established in 1990, under the Bombay Act 1956, with an objective of providing education, social welfare & health care to the under privileged sections of the society.
In the early 1990s there were no self-financed institutes for higher professional education. Thousands of students from Gujarat state had to migrate to other states for pursuing higher education. Parul Arogya Seva Mandal made an arduous effort to initiate the concept of self-financed higher education in Gujarat. Due to this, Govt. of Gujarat introduced a policy which bears the establishment of Self-Financed Institutes in the state, under which Gujarat’s first Self-Financed institute “Ahmadabad Homoeopathic Medical College” was found by Parul Arogya Seva Mandal in 1993.
Since then, PASM has established eminent academic institutions offering diploma, under-graduation, post-graduation & doctoral programs in Engineering & Technology, Business Administration, Management, Computer Application, Architecture, Pharmacy, Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Fine Arts, Social Work and Applied Sciences; all having requisite approvals by respective councils and government. Several Award, recognitions, rankings, international Tie-ups, accreditation had led to amalgamation of “Parul Group of Institutes” to “Parul University” vide a bill passed by Government of Gujarat on 26th March 2015 under Gujarat Private University Act 2009.
