Inspired by the life and ideals of Maharaja Surajmal, a great Indian patriot and enlightened ruler of Bharatpur during the eighteenth century, Surajmal Memorial Education Society was established in 1972 and registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860. The main aim of the Society was to disseminate quality education in the technical and professional areas, specially those beneficial to the students from rural and hitherto educationally deprived people of our country. There are more than 9000 members of the society spread over all parts of India and abroad. However, the main component is from the states of Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan.
