The Patidar organisation runs coaching classes for civil service and other competitive exams

The Patidar organisation Sardardham was in the spotlight recently. The organisation, which has members from both Kadva and Leuva communities, was set up for the development of the Patidar community with the goal of long-term progress in the social, economic and educational fields. 

Sardardham saw a record number of eight out of 25 candidates from Gujarat clear the UPSC exam recently. The organisation is planning to set up a private university in Ahmedabad. The objective of the new university will be to offer quality education at affordable cost to the youth.

Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel is the founder trustee of Sardardham. The organisation runs coaching classes for civil services and other various government competitive examinations.

Ambitious target

It has set a target of 10,000 girls and boys to be selected for the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), Gujarat Public Service Commission, defence services and other administrative services.

Since 2018, more than 3,200 youths who had enrolled at Sardardham’s Sudha Jashvant Ambalal Civil Service centre have been appointed to Class-1 to 3 posts in 24 departments of the state government. 

Recently, it started a skill development centre in collaboration with the state’s Kaushalya Skill University in Ahmedabad.

The organisation is already in talks with the state government for submitting its proposal for the university. It will have to purchase land in Ahmedabad or Gandhinagar as per the norms of a minimum five acres required to launch a university, according to sources.

The community organisation is located near Vaishno Devi circle. The foundation of the complex was laid by then Chief Minister Anandiben Patel in 2014. Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually inaugurated the first phase that was completed at a cost of Rs 200 crore in 2021. 

More campuses planned

The organisation is setting up similar campuses in Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, Mehsana and Navi Mumbai in the coming years. 

According to the Gujarat Private Universities Act 2009, the proposal submitted for a private university goes to a scrutiny committee formed by the state government. After the committee submits its report, the government decides whether to issue a letter of intent, call for further details from the sponsoring body, or reject the proposal.

If the government is satisfied that the sponsoring body of the proposed varsity has complied with the conditions of the letter of intent, the university is approved through appropriate legislation.
