From Practicing Chartered Accountant to Educationist
Sri Pansari started his practice as a Chartered Accountant in 1988 in Guwahati under the name and style M/s Modi Pansari & Co, along with his childhood friend, Anil Modi. Over the years, having done well professionally, he decided to become a social entrepreneur and that too in education and related activities. He focused on providing quality education to the children of North East to stop the exodus from this region.
He, in association with some other people of the region, established Delhi Public School in the year 2003 at Ahomgaon, Guwahati, followed by Royal Group of Institutions, in 2009 (RGI). RGI turned out to be a premier institution in the North East imparting Engineering, Management, Commerce & Architecture courses with a vision to offer the best of technical/higher education in the region. Later, Sri Pansari came up with Royal Global School in 2012, a world class co-educational day-cum- boarding Higher Secondary school, first of its kind in the region.
Another feather to his cap was added with the start of Royal Global University in the year 2017, with 13 schools & 55 under-graduate & post graduate UGC recognized programmes offered under one roof to churn out responsible leaders to the society who will be capable of enriching the future by bringing positive transformation to the world.
Mr. Pansari, known to have made a revolution in education sector of the North-East, also started Royal Estate Developers in 2002 and successfully completed a number of projects. He has his own media house named Purvoday Publications Private Ltd. which started publishing Hindi daily “Dainik Purvoday’’ in 2005.
Mr. Pansari was not born with a silver spoon. He is a self-made man. He is a treasurer of “human values”, true in every sense of the term. The mantras of hard work, honesty and perfection have brought him success and achievement. However, nothing comes easy in life. He had to struggle very hard in life and profession as well, as he never took the short route to success by compromising on integrity, business and professional ethics. He strongly believes in togetherness and gives much of the credit for all these milestones to his childhood friend Anil Modi and considers that they are two wheels of a vehicle. Today, he is one of the leading lights of the state in letter and spirit. He is an ardent orator and a great motivator for the student community.
