The Doongarsee Gangjee Ruparel College, established in 1952 by the Modern Education Society, Pune is rightly known as one of the best institutions of higher education in Mumbai. The top ranks in University Merit Lists, Gold Medals and the high number of First Classes bagged by its students in the examinations of the University of Mumbai reflect the College's constant quest for academic excellence.

History of the College
