Founded in 1956, The Kalgidhar Society – Baru Sahib has been working tirelessly towards transforming the lives of rural children through the tool of Value-Based Education. At the same time, Society has placed equal focus on empowering women, providing health care and ensuring social welfare for the vulnerable people in society. With the firm belief that everyone deserves to lead a life of dignity, each initiative of The Kalgidhar Society is embedded in the core thought of ’Bringing Grace to the Human Race’. The Kalgidhar Society initiated its work to bring back the glory of Punjab which is free of drug and alcohol abuse through the tool of education rooted in values. In its quest of fighting drugs with books, the Society has established 129 low-cost CBSE schools and 2 universities. The Kalgidhar Society under its flagship Akal Academies program, is providing modern, value-based education to nearly 70,000 students across rural areas of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Extending a helping hand to all those in need and giving them an opportunity to lead a decent life, the Kalgidhar Society has established teacher training centers, a multi-specialty hospital, drug de-addiction centers, an orphanage, one old age home, and a Center for Distressed Women. Through the years, our work has been recognized globally and models developed by the Society have been adapted across various educational institutions.

Disclaimer: The Kalgidhar Trust and the Kalgidhar Society under Baru Sahib are two separate entities with distinct legal structures and operational autonomy. The Kalgidhar Trust is a registered trust established under the Indian Trusts Act, 1882, and is responsible for managing the financial resources and assets of the Baru Sahib campus, including educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and community development initiatives. The Kalgidhar Society under Baru Sahib is a registered society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, and is responsible for the day-to-day operations and management of the educational institutions under its umbrella.

Established under the Punjab Government Act No. 25 (2015) and approved under the Section 2(f) of UGC Act (1956) to confer degrees. Akal University has a mission and vision to establish permanent peace in the world through values based scientific education and spiritual rejuvenation creating good global citizens. With blessings from Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji Maharaj, the establishment of Akal University under the leader ship of Baba Iqbal Singh Ji by the Kalgidhar Trust (Baru Sahib) is culmination of what the Tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, prophesied about three centuries ago. Akal University has been mandated to carry out activities pertaining to the three basic principles of higher education: Teaching, Learning and Research. The University is successfully running UG (Honours), PG (Honours) and PhD programs in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, English, Punjabi, Psychology, Commerce, Economics, Social sciences, and UG in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Studies. Striving for excellence in teaching and research, the University also offers BCA (Hons), B.Tech. (CSE), MBA and four years integrated B.Sc.-B.Ed./B.A.-B.Ed program. The University has faculty members who are highly qualified with exceptionally good academic records. The university has a firm resolve to provide a drug-free environment and to create a disciplined campus. A magnificent building with ultra-modern facilities for teaching and research is the hallmark of the University.

Eternal university is NAAC Accreditated & ISO 9001: 2015 Certified University established under the Himachal Pradesh Private University (Establishment & Regulation) Act 2006 & Himachal Pradesh Government 3 of 2009, with the right to confer degree as per the UGC public notice on private Universities dated April 18, 2011. Eternal University with its seven constituent colleges is unique in imparting value based education to girl students and is the first private university of Himachal Pradesh to start College of Nursing, School of Public Health and College of Agriculture. Among several previous recognitions the Eternal University has been recently recognized as “The 20th Best Higher Education Institution in India, 2019 which are providing a broader perspective and cutting edge higher education with a focal point on fostering skills and innovation” by EDUCATION BRAINIAC magazine. In a largely residential campus the day-scholar girl students from nearby areas of Sirmaur district who could commute from home can now also pursue their studies in the Eternal University. Situated in the Valley of Divine Peace the Modern Gurukul is providing safest, drug and pollution free environment with facilities such as sports complex, gymnasium, NSS and NCC units, experimental farms, poly houses, modern dairy complex, solar power utilization systems and support for holistic development of its students. The Eternal University has organized several conferences, workshops, camps and Kisan Melas with emphasis to address the crucial problems of farmers of Sirmour and adjoining districts of Himachal Pradesh for their inclusive development. It is continuously looking forward to take up research in the thrust areas and research gaps in Agriculture, Food Technology, Biotechnology, Public Health, Basic Sciences, Engineering & Technology and Renewable Energy with the teams of world class scientists, in-house and external funding support from different national and state funding agencies

GREEN CHEMISTRY NETWORK CENTRE (GCNC) was established in University of Delhi under the recommendation of World Leaders in Green Chemistry headed by Professor Paul Anastas (known as the father of Green Chemistry) to build a Network for exchange of expertise, discussion and knowledge between industrialists, academicians chemists and engineers with interests and expertise relevant to Green Chemistry. The centre also prepares and disseminates the teaching materials on Green Chemistry for school, college and university levels with the simultaneous design of laboratory experiments for these levels as well

In commemoration of the Silver Jubilee of Green Chemistry Principles!!

Join us to witness the insightful virtual session on Green Chemistry by the founder of Green Chemistry Prof. Paul Anastas and Prof. John C. Warner!!

The Indian Chemical Society, a premier Scientific Society of India, was founded on 9th May, 1924, as National Forum for the community of chemists and members of allied disciplines in the country. The driving force behind its establishment was the nationalistic spirit prevailing in India under British rule. J. N. Mukherjee, J. C. Ghosh and S. S. Bhatnagar while carrying out their research work in the University College, London in 1919 for the D.Sc. Degree, took a decision that after coming back to India their endeavour would be to establish a Chemical Society like the Chemical Society of London. Their cherished dream was transformed into a reality with active cooperation of many of the leading personalities in the country, and the Indian Chemical Society was founded on May 9, 1924, as a registered Society, with Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray, the doyen of Indian Chemists, as the first President. Many of the distinguished personalities in the field of Chemical Science of that time in India and Europeans took active interest in nurturing the new born Society. The Indian Chemical Society started its activity with the publication of a Journal entitled “Journal of the Indian Chemical Society”, which publishes double blind peer reviewed articles, papers, notes, communications and book reviews in the major areas of Inorganic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Biochemistry, Engineering Chemistry, Industrial and Applied Chemistry. From January 2021 this journal is being published by the renowned International Publishing House, the Elsevier. Since 1963 the Indian Chemical Society has been organizing an Annual Event entitled “Annual Convention of Chemists”. To encourage research in Chemical Sciences the Society has instituted 21 Endowment Awards in the name of famous Indian Chemists and yearly 15-16 reputed chemists of the country and abroad awarded the prizes at the Annual Convention.


Only the accepted full papers (reviews/original research articles) will be published as a special issue in the journal Synthetic Communications journal published by Taylor and Francis (indexed in SCI, SCOPUS, WOS, IF 1.937) Registered presenters need to submit their manuscript directly to the journal’s portal. All the manuscripts will be peer reviewed as per journal’s policy and their decision will be final. Presenters need to present their work to get the conference presentation certificates.
