It was nearly half a century ago, Late Sir Padampat Singhania, the visionary founder of the J K Organisation dreamt of an empowered India populace, through whom India would take its place as an equal in the comity of nations. According to him, empowerment pre-supposes education and knowledge. That then became the cornerstone of the Organisation’s philosophy for discharging its social responsibility. The J K Cement Nimbahera Foundation (JKCNF) was born. Overtime, the involvement with education became stronger and deeper. Today, two decades later, it is associated with twelve educational institutions imparting education to nearly 14000 students at various levels of the learning curve.
