One of the iconic business groups from East India, P C Chandra Group enters the third year of their "Gyandhara" initiative which aims at helping colleges to set up Knowledge Centres in their premises. The auspicious occasion was held at the Tulip Banquets of P C Chandra Gardens on Tuesday and attended by eminent Bengali author, Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay. The Joint Managing Director, P C Chandra Jewellers, Prosanto Chandra was also present at the event.

The "Gyandhara" initiative includes the financial assistance of Rs 2 Lakh given to each college to be used for infrastructural development either by upgrading, renovating or building a library/laboratory or acquiring new books/equipment etc. It started with 13 colleges in 2015, and now the Group has 44 Colleges under the Gyandhara project. Through this initiative, the PC Chandra Group reinforces its pledge towards creating a better tomorrow for the future generations. This fortifies its corporate philosophy and internal culture of trust, quality, honesty and excellence.
Like every year, on the third chapter of Gyandhara, a sum of Rs 2 Lakh each was granted to 15 reputed colleges of South 24 Parganas, Bankura, Birbhum, Dakshin Dinajpur, Hooghly, Howrah, Kolkata, Nadia, Burdwan, Cooch Behar and Jharkhand towards establishing The PC Chandra Knowledge Centre in their premises.
Speaking on the occasion, Prosanto Chandra, Joint Managing Director, P C Chandra Jewellers said, "Education is a key to the progress of any country and is a powerful tool of empowerment. While the colleges are providing educational opportunities to the future of our country, being a socially responsible corporate group it is our duty to help and support them."
