The chairperson of Indira Group of Institutes, Dr. Tarita Shankar established Shree Chanakya Education Society in the year 1994 when she realized that the core of India’s development issue lies in providing much needed education to its youth. Indira Group of Institutes offers courses in the field of Management, IT, Science, Commerce, Communication, Acting school, Pharmacy and Engineering.

Her love for travelling and reading coupled with the rich experiences in her life has transformed her into a dynamic person she is now.

This includes assistance to students, physically handicapped and orphaned children, senior citizens etc. She launched her CARE club on 25th July 2013 on the occasion of the induction programme of the MBA students at Indira Global Business School.
It is an innovative initiative taken by her where the students as well as the staff members of Indira Group of Institutes will be able to seek her guidance and benefit from her rich experience of life. She says, “My dream of doing this started when I meet students with varied problems and fears and directionless each day… I plan to counsel at least 10 students per week on a one to one basis …helping them transform into better and caring human beings adding happiness in society!”
This club is open to all Indira members. The students and staff members who wish to undergo the counseling with Tarita ma’am need to follow the following instructions.

It is said that the best gift you can give to people is time. Tarita ma’am herself will be available for counseling post lunch twice a week, i.e. Tuesdays and Thursdays at IGBS campus. Everybody encounters problems in his/her personal, social, academic and professional life. These problems lead to stress and anxiety in our life. It is a common experience that we are not able to achieve our full potential due our stressful lives. One of the English proverbs says, “A problem shared is halved.” We all have desire to express our deepest concerns with someone we can confide in.
