About the College

Nirmala College of Commerce had its inception in the academic year 2005-06. Located strategically in Malad (East), this educational institution was the brainchild of the visionary educator and founder, Mr. Thakorbhai N. Desai, affectionately known as "Dadaji." The dream of offering affordable, high-quality education became a reality thanks to the dedicated efforts of Madam Aruna Desai, the college's Director. She is admired for her dynamic leadership, philanthropic spirit, and unwavering commitment to providing accessible education.

In the academic year 2005-06, NMFC Junior College of Commerce and Shanti Devi Shukla Junior College of Science were established with four divisions for XIth Commerce and two for Science. From these humble beginnings, the college rapidly expanded, adding new divisions in subsequent years. For instance, in 2007-08, a new division of XIth Commerce was introduced, followed by the addition of sixth and seventh divisions in 2008-09. In 2009-10, another division of Commerce was added, and two more followed in 2010-11, completing a total of ten divisions for XIth Commerce. In 2014-15 and 2015-16, two more divisions were added to the existing two divisions in the Science stream, bringing the total number of students to 3360. The college boasts well-equipped computer and science labs for practical sessions.

The growing demand for a degree college to accommodate students from the Junior College led to the establishment of Nirmala College of Commerce (Degree College) in 2007-08. It started with a single division but expanded to two divisions in 2008-09 and four divisions in 2009-10, totaling four divisions each for FY, SY, and TY B.Com, with 1440 students.

The college provides essential facilities for nurturing students and delivering quality education. The dedicated teachers actively guide and support students in various activities. In addition to curricular programs, the college offers ample opportunities for personal growth through co-curricular and extracurricular activities, helping students develop their personalities. These activities include debates, elocution and essay competitions, quiz contests, and interactions with experts from the education and industry sectors. These experiences enrich the students' knowledge and skills. Teachers play a pivotal role in guiding and supervising students to help them realize their potential in various fields. The college also fosters an environment for budding artists by organizing competitions in painting, dancing, music, and other art forms. The "Nirmala Week" annual event provides a platform for students to showcase their talents and hone their skills.

The college has a very active N.S.S. unit with 100 volunteers who engage in activities such as blood donation, a 7-day residential camp in an adopted tribal village in KarelaPada, Vasai District, Palghar, Swatchh Bharat Abhiyan, and other social welfare initiatives. Additionally, students participate in N.C.C., and the "Annual Sports Event" hosted at Sai Ground is a prominent extracurricular highlight. This event attracts a large number of sports enthusiasts, and students receive professional training under the guidance of trainers to bring out their best. The college's management, with the dynamic leadership of Chairman Mr. Denis Desai and the proactive Secretary Mrs. Dhara Desai, is committed to ensuring the institution's continued progress and its emergence as a leading educational institution in Mumbai.
