Vision & Mission


Karim City College is a Muslim Minority Institution run and managed by Karim’s Trust, Jamshedpur, with permanent affiliation to Kolhan University, Chaibasa. Founded by Late Syed Tafazzul Karim, with the intention of promoting education among the weaker sections, particularly the Muslims, the college was established in 1961 with pre-university courses. Degree courses were launched in the year 1963. The institution achieved milestones with affiliation being acquired in 1965 for its degree courses of Arts and Commerce. It’s growth was accelerated by the establishment of its Faculty of Science in the year 1978. In the last fifteen years, after its first cycle of accreditation, the institution has witnessed a steady course of progress. In 2004 the

college went for its first assessment by NAAC and was awarded a grade of B+. In the year 2010, the college was accorded CPE status by the UGC. The college went for its second cycle of accreditation in the year 2012 and was awarded Grade B with Grade Point 2.88. In the year 2013, the institution inaugurated a new campus at Mango to which its Faculty of Education was shifted. The college has zealously and consistently promoted extra-curricular activities. The college offers consistent encouragement to active social engagement and welfare activities. Discipline constitutes an important institutional concern. The institution focuses on character building through teaching and co-curricular activities. Today, the institution is proud to have its alumni disseminated across all parts of the country, rendering their services to society in various professional capacities.



Karim City College is the dream fulfilment of our visionary founder Late Syed Tafazzul Karim, who established the institution with Pre-University Courses in 1961 with a mission to impart quality education and to provide better opportunities of higher education to the weaker sections of the society particularly to the Muslim minority. Hence, all our efforts are targeted towards the attainment of this basic goal. The modern world and its challenges demand a constant renewal, a fresh approach and a process of change and adaption in the arena of higher education. The college is open to changes, innovations and improvisations. We are determined to acquire and provide the best in the field of higher education service towards self-fulfilment of our stakeholders in our constant goal.

We are constantly trying to create a modern, peaceful, progress oriented and knowledge based society with an emphasis upon research, innovation, production and not a sheer consumerist behavior.
