The dream project of Mr. R. L. Chopra and Mrs. Usha Chopra came into existence in one room, in the year 1960. The beginnings were modest, the goals were big. The aim was to design an institution which would in future become a beacon for excellence in education.
Almost 50 years on, as we look back, we are inspired yet again by the success story of a couple who dared to dream and work towards fulfilling that “vision” of an institution which has moulded thousands of lives and will continue to do so.
