My City, My College


29th March 2015

I want to thank you all, for your outpouring of support.  We need it.  We want to create a world class institution, in a world class campus.  I continue to explain our vision in parts.

Here is an image of our dream Sion Campus.

This is how we dream of creating this campus.


Looking to the future.  We have worked with Perkins Eastman to come up with this master plan.  Perkins Eastman is an internationally renowned architecture planning firm.  See their websites at:
and their work on education at:

We have put these images on both campuses.
The new Draft Development Plan for Mumbai affects this in many ways:

1.  First and foremost, it affects our plan to expand our K J Somaiya Institute of Engineering and Information Technology.  
a.  We have already applied to the BMC for giving us approval to build our extension building - (shown as #11).  We need to build this extension to provide additional facilities for the existing programmes, student services, auditorium, canteens, laboratories, create new space for new programmes, and so much more.  This will even cause us to have problems with the AICTE regulations.

The revised DP proposes a road through the area where our proposed building is planned to be built.  This road cuts right through our proposed building.

In fact, we have provided area 16/17 across the highway also as a part residential area, so that between areas 6 and 16/17, we can build hostels to accommodate the increased demand for students who want to attend our programmes (on either campus) and stay on the campus.

We need to object this Community Centre between our Hospital campus an the KJSIEIT building.  

We require support of students, parents, alumni, and members of the community.  In the next few days, our KJSIEIT, K J Somaiya Medical College, K J Somaiya College of Physiotherapy, and Nursing will request for your support to file objections.

Tomorrow, I will post more issues that are wrong in the proposed DP plan.

Once again, thanks for your support.
