Parel is well known as Mumbai’s labour area. A large number of young men and women from this area who were employed, felt the strong desire of the need to obtain a University Degree, either for the sake of better employment or promotion or social awareness. Unfortunately, they did not have the requisite local educational facilities to do so. Again, due to being employed, these young people have only the late evening hours to spare for their studies. It was for these reasons, that the need for a Degree Night College at Parel was felt, and hence established in 1984.

From June 1984, the Government of Maharashtra and the University of Mumbai granted the Gokhale Education Society the permission to start a Night Degree College in Parel from June of that year. Today, the College has become Mumbai’s first full-fledged Degree Night Senior College with a strength of more than 1000 students. The main objective of the College is to offer academic and co-curricular facilities preferably to employed students.

We at Dr. TKTACNC are committed to deliver quality education in the Arts & Commerce streams at the first degree level. Keeping in times, and aspiring to be the state-of-the–art, we strive to fulfil the changing needs and expectations of the students, parents and society as a whole and particularly enable the under-privileged sections of the society to take a quantum leap forward. Our quality policy is exemplified in the total involvement of all the stakeholders in the process of teaching and learning, conformance with the quality system and a continuous improvement in quality.
