To cherish this objective and to join hands with the policy of the Government of Puducherry in enhancing technical education to meet the needs of our nation, the Trust established Sri Manakula Vinayagar Engineering College in 1999. Prior to this the trust had established and successfully run Mailam Engineering College in 1998. From then on, the trust has been continuously striving to carve itself in to the educational landscape of Puducherry with Venketeswara College of Education and Venkateswara Teacher Training Institute in 2005, Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College and Hospital in 2006 and in 2007 it instituted Sri Manakula Vinayagar Nursing College, Sri Manakula Vinayagar College of Education and Sri Manakula Vinayagar Teacher Training Institute.
