About Sri. M. N. Raju

The dawn of August 15, 1974 not only welcomed the 27th anniversary of Indian independence but also marked the beginning of a new chapter in the annals of education in the state of Telangana. This eventful day saw the forming of MNR Educational Trust, founded by Sri. M.N. Raju, Chairman of MNR Educational Group, who conceived the idea of network of MNR institutions for a broader cause. Sri M N Raju is a great visionary and could think ahead of his times always. He is the guiding and motivating force that inspires the dedicated staff members and the ever growing number of the student community. The philosophy of Sri M.N. Raju  reminds  everyone of the preaching of Swami Vivekananda that one should always pray God for two things only, the first one Health and the second one Courage to face any kind of challenge and turbulent time in one’s life. Undoubtedly, he believes, the Courage comes from Education. The rich and varied experience of Sri M N Raju has helped the group to evolve a unique student-centric teaching approach, which transforms the students into competent future professionals and lead a successful career.

The Trust is well known for its tenacity and contribution to the society through quality education leading the students to the more meaningful goals of life with responsible public engagement and economic independence.
