Ramnarain Ruia College

Ruia College is an educational institution in the central part of Mumbai in Hindu Colony, between the Dadar and Matunga railway stations. It is home to Ramnarain Ruia College of Arts & Science and Ramnivas Ruia Junior College of Arts and Science. The college has been awarded a four star rating by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council of India.

The College was established in June 1937. It was the first college in Mumbai to be started by Shikshana Prasarak Mandali, Pune. It was inaugurated formally on 3rd December 1937 by the then Governor of Bombay, Sir Roger Lumley. A large part of the credit for its establishment goes to Mataji Suvratadevi Ruia and her son, Seth Ramnivas Ruia. Seth Ruia donated a sum of Rs. 2,00,000 (not adjusted for inflation) at that time, from the Ramnarain Harnandrai Charitable Trust. In recognition of this gesture, S.P. Mandali named the institution after him.
