Dombivli, the city in Thane district of Maharashtra retains a distinct identity of its own and occupies a significant position in the socio cultural map of the region. The town is well known for its high literacy rate. It is the third most literate cities of India. It has been the centre for a series of socio cultural and literary movements and activities. There are about hundred pre-primary, primary and secondary schools, a score of Junior Colleges, few technical institutions and half a dozen Degree Colleges.
But some thirty years ago, the educational environment of the city presented a different picture. Students from Dombivli and surrounding rural areas had to take admission in the colleges of Thane and Mumbai. Travelling by heavily crowded local train was laborious, time consuming and risky. Many youth could not obtain higher education due to lack of colleges in the neighborhood.
Under this background, the Dombivli Shikshan Prasarak Mandal was established in 1972 by some elite citizens of Dombivli from different fields who realized the need for the college in the city. All members of the Mandal were well qualified, reputed in their own fields and dedicated to the cause of education and upliftment of society. They were aware of the role of institutions of higher education and took up the mission of providing education to students and converting them into responsible citizens of the nation.
