Education is a powerful tool which provides people with knowledge, skill, technique, and information that enables them to know their rights and duties toward their family, society as well as the nation.  It is an essential knowledge which expands our vision and outlook to see the world and develops capabilities to fight against the bad elements in society.

This guidance and direction are inculcated by our Educational Institutes which play an integral role in shaping the future of young minds throughout their life.

Celebrating and honouring this guidance, we bring forth a 20+-year-old legacy. With 30 Institutes, 140 Programs, and over 37000+ Students enrolled in diverse academic programs. This is the largest & most trusted premier education service provider in Eastern India – JIS Group Educational Initiatives.

With the vision igniting minds, empowering lives in mind, JIS Group started its journey in 1998. The first college was Asansol Engineering College. And two years later, JIS followed with the opening of JIS College of Engineering in 2000.

Thus, the endless journey of JIS Group in the field of education kept on surging forward.

The University is operational since then intending to provide instructions, teaching, training and research in various branches and specialized fields of study of Science, Engineering and Technology, Management, Law, Humanities, Education, and other fields of study including imparting of skills that have employment potential through the JIS Institute of Skill Development.

The Visionary

Among his group members and other people of diverse views, Sardar Jodh Singh was known as Babuji. He believed that education is the core of human progress. The purpose of education is to prepare people to be successful, productive, and engaged members of society. As such, they get to shape sustainable societies, enhance economies, and improve lives.

During his lifetime, Mr Singh contributed to our modern India to a considerable degree. He served the society through his pioneering role in alleviating the scourge of illiteracy by propagating the need for quality education across various sections and strata of the society.
