KARAPAGA VINAYAGA EDUCATIONAL TRUST
The Formation of the Trust owes to the intuitive zeal Coupled With the altruistic sprit of Thiru.S.Regupathy, the Honorable Minister of State for Environment and Forest, Governmentof India, Who envisioned a globally-renowned institution with rich ambience for research-focused higher education .In association with some like-minded philanthropists who are noted for their patronage to education, he founded the Trust.
