Suryadatta Group of Institutes is keen on undertaking various social and human initiatives for the betterment of the society and life in general. Suryadatta in consultation with renowned eye specialist and diabetes specialists organized a free health check up camp & 2nd Blood Donation Camp in this semester.
Under Suryadatta’s Social Initiative, Suryadatta’s Design students visited small villages in ‘Velle Taluka’ for rice plantation.
As a part of Suryadatta Edu Socio Initiative, this year alos Suryadatta group of Institutes students executed a very unique program of “Rice Crop plantation, in association with leading Organization; “ Vanrai”.
Vanrai is implementing various social initiatives especially for farmers and social development since last 25 years. And their contribution is very valuable. Vanrai is implementing various projects for supporting farmers and soling their problems.
Suryadatta, leading institution always ahead in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility through Edu Socio connect, joined hands for offering support to the farmers based in Vinzar, Dist : Velhe, a place about 60 kms away from Pune.
This initiative was planned with an objective to inculcate the social responsibility amongst students. Recently under Suryadatta’s Social initiative, Suryadatta’s Design 250 students along with faculties and Principal Prof. Ajit Shinde participated in the act. The whole event was organized and guided by Vairai’s Adv. Nandu Phadake.
During the journey, Organizers explained the objective of these imitative and other details. A group of about 5-7 students was attached with one farmer and these students were in the control of that farmer for the day. And worked there in consultation with farmers for trans plantation of RICE throughout the day for about 30-40 farms. Students enjoyed and learned a lot by the activity, got closer with the life style of the farmers and understood the value of single grain of food. They had lunch with farmers. While sharing the experiences the students had also realized how the Indian farms are incredible part of our country’s economy.
The environment is very supportive in this area for RICE Crop, however, due to shortage of labor, the farmers were not able to do the plantation across the farms. Because of students visit to that place, the farmers could complete about 80 % of their work, and the farmers, villagers and organizers were quite happy with this development. And they thanked students and faculty members for their contribution. These metro people came back to their routine life with refreshing minds, promising to visit the place again next year.

The women Reservation Bill is still not being passed by the Parliament and it still lies under a cloud of debate, but this is not deterrent for Rashtravadi Congress Youth leaders and female members, who have initiated various programs for the rural women without taking financial aid from the government.
Founder President & Chairman of Suryadatta Group Of Institutes, Prof. Dr. Sanjay B Chordiya has played a major role in organizing short courses in fashion technology for these women, in various locations in Pune and also dedicating staff from Suryadatta for the courses. Bavdhan Budruk, is a small village just on the outskirts of Pune. Though it is now considered a part of Pune City with its high rise buildings, townships etc., and this development is being limited to the people with financial status. The locals are still deprived of good facilities and jobs, with many leading a hand to mouth existence. This scenario has led President , Youth Rashtravadi Congress, Pune and Panchayat Member (Bavdhan Bk) member Shri Kiran Dagade to start free tailoring and fashion technology classes for women in Bavdhan in association with Suryadatta Institute of Fashion Technology (SIFT). Till now at least 500 women have benefited from this initiative.
As a culmination of this course the women had held an exhibition of clothes tailor by them on the 20th July, 2011, at Suryadatta Bavdhan Campus. This exhibition was blessed by the presence of Khasdar Supriyatai Sule. On this occasion she explained the benefits and importance of packaging & finishing. Supriyatai Sule also requested all the eminent personalities who were present to provide these ladies with opportunities for the sale of their goods. She also touched a very sensitive topic of female feticide & infanticide and explained the need to stop and oppose these practices.
On this occasion Prof. Dr. Sanjay B. Chordiya explained all the various edu -socio activities which have been started for women by Suryadatta Institutes. Shri Kiran Dagade also announced the forthcoming courses for ladies like making beauty products & spices, before thanking all the dignitaries present.
Also present on this occasion were Savitabai Dagade (Z.P President), Shri Babanrao Dagade (ex-Sarpanch), Vaishali Kamble (Sarpanch), Bavdhan Budruk. The program ended with a thought that such programs should be started in every village so that we can become the India which Mahatma Gandhi dreamt of.

Learning is an ongoing process, which has nothing to do with age. Whether you are four or you are forty, you are always keen to learn something new. Drawing inspiration from this, Suryadatta had launched its 2nd batch of English speaking & Computer awareness programs offered voluntarily to Auto Rickshaw Drivers & Housewives free of cost.
This training programme for a batch of 80 persons, comprising 40 auto rickshaw drivers and 40 housewives started in January 2011 and completed successfully on June 24, 2011.
On this occasion, Mr Sanjay Chordiya, Chairperson, Suryadatta Group of Institutes, said, “In the 21st century, knowledge of English and to be able to converse in English is a necessity rather than the need of time. The response to the programme was tremendous from both rickshaw-drivers and housewives and we are awarding certificates to 80 candidates of this programme.”
Certificates were distributed to those who have successfully completed the programme at the hands of Shri Baba Adhav, President of Rickshaw Panchayat & Shri Jayant Umranikar, former Pune Police commissioner and Shri Deepak Shikarpur, who were present as Chief Guest and Guest of Honour respectively.
Shri Jayant Umranikar said, “Women are the backbone of family system yet their education remains neglected most of the time. Now days English has become common language for communication. Dr Sanjay Chordiya has always been ahead in undertaking such social initiatives. This initiative by an education institute will help our society go ahead and keep pace with time.”
Shri Baba Adhav said, “Rickshaw drivers always aspire to learn these skills but most of the times cannot make it either due to financial or time constraints, or even both. But by offering these courses free of charge, Suryadatta has not only provided a helping hand to them but also awakened their learning spirit. I congratulate Suryadatta for this innovative and useful activity.”
Shri Deepak Shikarpur said, “With globalization everything is becoming high tech” English speaking and Computer learning is the need of the hour. And hence Suryadatta started this initiative of offering this training to various communities of society in a row. Suryadatta is getting overwhelming response to it.
A housewife is life and blood of the family. Her role in the family is as same as the heart and brain in the human body. A learned and trained housewife can bring in health, happiness, soundness and satisfaction to the family in all the respects and facets of life. One such family into many such families will go a long way in building a developed society and nation. Suryadatta has taken one such initiative to train and impart learning to this vital element of the society.
Contents of the course were as follows,
The English Speaking course comprised of:
- Basic Grammar
- Words and Sentences formation for daily usage
- Writing English with different situational examples
- How to speak clearly so that the other person understands
While the IT/ Computer skills course comprised of: Introduction to computers
- MS office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Paint, Notepad, Calculator, Calendar

In the past, Suryadatta has trained more than 2000 school children, 120 Auto Rickshaw Drivers, 500 women and 100 senior citizens. Senior citizens started communicating with their children abroad with the help of knowledge of Computer, Internet and English language. They also started talking to their grand children’s in English, which was up till then little difficult for them.
Auto rickshaw drivers who completed the training in first batch, are now working as a guide to the passengers coming to Pune, and can communicate with them in English. Taking inspiration from them, the second batch had enrolled prior to completion of the training program of first batch itself. And on completion of first batch, second batch followed immediately.
