Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM) is a Public Charitable Trust in India that runs and operates many educational schools, colleges and institutions across India.


SVKM started in 1934 when it took over the Rashtriya Shala, a school established in 1921, in the wake of the Swadeshi Movement and Indian Independence Movement.[1] Over the years, it has made the Mumbai suburb of Vile Parle into an educational hub with over 40 schools and colleges under its wing. It has now spread to other Indian cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad and Navi Mumbai, among others.
