"The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence". -Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore

Greetings from the Principal of H K Commerce College! As a premier institution of higher education, H K Commerce College offers its students a unique blend of modern education anchored in hallowed Bhartiya values. The college is guided in its mission of combining the best of tradition and modernity. It's a great example of Philanthropy by Shri Harivallabh Kalidas, a great personality of Ahmedabad City. The college has been contributing to the solemn task of nation-building since its very inception.

The exemplary service the college has rendered society has received due recognition in several nationwide surveys that have consistently ranked Shri H K Commerce College among the best colleges of Ahmedabad. We try to nurture students with adequate emphasis on all the three aspects of integrated education e.g. physical, intellectual and value education. H K Commerce College also enjoys the reputation of being a friend of the less privileged sections, in particular the Ahmedabad City area and rural students.

I am fortunate to be a part of the H K family which untiringly assists me in my efforts to continually raise the benchmark of our success. A dedicated team of faculty members and non-teaching staff form the backbone of our institutional machinery. I view my role as Academicians well as administrator and a friend who facilitates overall development of the students of the college.

I think none of us will have lived through a crisis like this and there are now fundamental changes to our daily lives, the way we study, communicate, work and socialise. The present crisis may change us in multiple ways and there could be institutional challenges on a scale we have never known, but there will always be innovations and fresh ideas which bring assuring gains in the future.

I am appointed at a very crucial time when National Education Policy is announced by the Government. This National Education Policy 2020 is the first education policy of the 21st century and aims to address the many growing developmental imperatives of our country. This Policy proposes the revision and revamping of all aspects of the education structure, including its regulation and governance, to create a new system that is aligned with the aspirational goals of 21st century education. I hope for the active participation of SHKCC in successful implantation of this policy. The Digital India Campaign is helping to transform the entire nation into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. While education will play a critical role in this transformation, technology itself will play an important role in the improvement of educational processes and outcomes; thus, the relationship between technology and education at all levels is bidirectional. HKCC aims to use this technology extensively in teaching-learning process.

I take this opportunity to thank all the parents who have reposed their faith in our team. We assure to do our very best always. The college always tries its best to maintain the highest quality academic standard and provide the wonderful environment for studies. I would like to end with the shloka of Shukla Yajurveda…

तन्मे मनः शिवसंकल्पमस्तु ।
