Under the careful naturing and attention received from the trustees over these thirty-nine years, the Trust has grown into a matured organization in the field of education gradually but systematically and it is currently managing following educational institutions successfully.:
- Navyug Arts College

The trustee are fully aware of the rapid growth and advancement that has occurred in the field of Science and Technology over the period of last two decades all over the world, including India. The South Gujarat has also witnessed rapid industrial growth not only in the field of manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals but also in the field of the technical education in many branches of science. The positive approach of the Gujarat Government has encouraged many national and multinational pharmaceutical companies to shift their base from other states to Gujarat as their headquarters.
In comparison to rate of growth of the pharmaceutical industry in South Gujarat, the number of educational institutions offering degree courses in Pharmacy have grown with snail's pace. In fact, till the academic year 2003-2004, there were only two pharmacy colleges, one at Bardoli and the other one at Vapi. Students residing in proper Surat city and aspiring for the degree course in Pharmacy, were naturally experiencing lot of inconveniences of daily traveling to go to these colleges since these colleges are situated at distant places from Surat city.
Consideration by the trustees of the dire need of more educational institutions imparting technical education in proper Surat city has resulted in purchase of 100 acres of land near Malav Mandir, via Magdalla Port, Dumas. The campus is situated on the bank of the Tapi River. Besides having various buildings such as the office for Central Administraion, C.K.Pithawalla College of Engineering and Technology,master of Computer Application, C.K.Pithawalla Institution of Management.

To provide recreation to the students residing in the campus, te trustee shave incorporated sports facilities such as football and cricket grounds. Facilities of indoor games will also be provided to the students by individual colleges situated within the campus.
