History

The history of Ness Wadia College of Commerce can be traced back to June 1969 when the first Pre-degree Commerce classes had started under the auspices of the Modern Education Society.

Back then the classes were held in the adjacent building of the Nowrosjee Wadia College of Arts and Science.

In 1969, the Commerce wing, thus, came to be established as an independent college of commerce, named after Sir Ness Wadia, (1873-1952), the renowned industrialist and philanthropist of his times. The Modern Education Society is deeply indebted to Sir Ness as well as his brother Sir Cusrow for their unstinting support for this endeavour. The College moved into its present premises with a building of its own in 1971. The College was inaugurated on 16th July 1969, by Dr. H. V. Pataskar,the then Vice- chancellor of the University of Pune.

It came to be headed by the late Dr. B. S. Bhanage, one of the leading scholars of his time who later became the Vice-chancellor of Shivaji University. He was followed in 1972 by Professor V. K. Nulkar who retired in 1991. Professor Dr. H. M. Shaikh took over charge of the College from Principal Nulkar and remained Principal of the College till February 2000 when he retired. Dr. Ms. V. S. Devdhar took over as Principal in February 2000 on Principal Shaikh’s retirement. After her retirement in June 2009, Dr. H. V. Deosthali worked as Incharge Principal. Dr. M. M.

About Sir Ness Wadia

Sir Ness Wadia (1873-1952) was the second son of Bai Jerbai and Nowrosjee Ness Wadia. Sir Ness Wadia assisted his brother Sir Cusrow Wadia to carry forward their father’s legacy in business and philanthropic initiatives. Their efforts helped to scale up the operations of the Bombay Dyeing and Manufacturing Company and it became the largest textile operation in India.

After Sir Cusrow Wadia passed away, Sir Ness Wadia led the company’s growth, expansion, and modernization of the company. He was the first Indian to be awarded Knighthood of the British Empire in 1919.

His business success earned him the unofficial title of ‘The Cotton King’. In the 1920’s a wireless service between India and Britain for the first time,, Sir Ness Wadia played an instrumental role in this endeavor.

Sir Ness Wadia and his brother Cusrow became benefactors of the Modern Education Society at the behest of Prin. V. K. Joag (1888-1963), educator, reformist and founder life-member of the Society.
