Prahladrai Dalmia Lions College of Commerce and Economics is the oldest commerce college in the western (beyond Andheri) suburbs of Mumbai. It was established in the year 1972.
The Prahaladrai Dalmia Trust, the members of Lions Club of Malad – Borivli along with a number of like-minded businessmen and philanthropists, contributed towards the fund for the establishment of a commerce college to fulfill the needs of the society. Keeping in mind the ideals of the founders of the college, it initially aimed at providing commerce education to students in the vicinity, to make them self reliant and to contribute to the development of the society. Gradually the focus shifted to all round development of the youth by integrating cultural and social values.
The College encompasses the under-graduate, graduate and the post graduate section along with Self – financed and management courses. Over the years, the aim of the College has been to prepare the students to shine in all spheres of activities, be it academic, cultural or social… At present the college has 4500 students. Year after year the HSC results hovers around 97-99 %. In T.Y. B.Com. a large number of students get distinctions and many are placed in the first class.
For the dramatics team, winning has become a way of life…there is hardly any competition that the college has not made a mark in, be it at the State or the National level. So much so, for winning the ‘Best Play’ for three years in a row, the Prithviraj Kapoor Trophy finds a place of Pride on the college shelf.
The organizational and managerial skills of the students are developed through the conduct of the inter-collegiate festival popularly known as the ‘Dalmia Utsav’ (now rechristened as ‘Dalmia Lions Utsav’) wherein students of various colleges from all over Mumbai participate in Literary activities, Performing Arts and Cultural activities. In the field of social work and community service, the college is at the forefront of NSS and DACEE units of the University of Mumbai. The college has rendered yeomen service to the people of rural Maharashtra by providing medical, educational and welfare facilities.
All this is possible with the never ending support of the Lions Club of Malad - Borivali whose members believe in the motto of ‘We Serve’. They continue to encourage the students to represent the college at the University, State and National level to win trophies and championships and to bring laurels to the institution.
