Untiring efforts of the great visionary leaders Shri Tribhuvandas Kishibhai Patel , Shri Jaykrishnabhai Prabhudas Thakkar , Shri Fulabhai Patel , Shri Vithalbhai Somabhai Patel , Shri Jafuda and Shri Chimanbhai Gandhi towards the welfare of the people in and around Kheda district saw the establishment of Sardar Patel Education Trust at the end of 1969.

There was no money with the trust at the beginning. It was difficult to register the trust at that point of time, but Shri Jaykrishnabhai with his indomitable will and passion reached Vadodara and paid Rs. 100 from his own income towards the registration of the trust. He then virtually ran to Sardar Patel University Administrative Office so that he could submit the application for starting the college before the closure of the university office.

The acute financial crisis was not over. Then Naranbhai Shankerbhai Patel, a tobacco merchant from khankuva, a leader of Patel community and a great philanthropist who could foresee the revolutionary role of the trust for the spread of education, came forward offering his help. He donated Rs. 1,11,111 for the establishment of a Mahila (Ladies) college after his name. Thus N.S.Patel Arts College at Anand, the first college by this trust was established. Shri Tribhuvandas Patel, Shri Fulabhai Patel and Shri Jyakrishnabhai Thakkar are also to be credited for establishing the college. Shri Harmanbhai Satabbhai generously donated for opening Smt. Diwaliba Shishu Vihar for pre primary education. Seventy five computers have been procured from Rs. 1,11,111 that Shri Himmatbhai donated. Students are exposed to world of global knowledge through facility. The trust has received tremendous support from the people of Anand and near by villages. This is reflected in the stupendous growth of the trust that now manages eleven institues.

The Mahila College became a co–educational institute in the year 1978. Dr. V.D.Shah,a well known scholar of Economics took charge as principal of the co-ed college and the college developed by leaps and bound. Many seminars in Economics and Gujarati were organized during this time. Then afterwards under the stewardship of Dr. Ramakant Sharma the tradition continued and many national level seminars, workshops and lectures were arranged. Diploma courses in H.R.D and Banking (English medium) were started. Many people from G.I.D.C benefited from these courses.
