Sardarmal Chordia, secretary of the Agurchand Manmull Jain College, passed away on Wednesday. He was 82.
Taking over as the secretary in 1990, he transformed the college, improving infrastructure to a great extent. From a few hundred students in 2000, now there are nearly 8,000 students in the self-financing stream of the college. In the last three decades, he added over 120 classrooms, seven labs with 450 computers, established a new seminar hall and a visual communication lab, according to a press release.
He started two COVID Care Centres, where patients were not charged for blood tests or scans and food was given free. He also started a free food distribution programme for those affected by COVID-19.
