Andhajan Shikshan Mandal was established in 1954 by Shri Gordhandas Chokhawala at the urging of Shri Siraj Basrai, a blind person. Shri Chokhawala who later became president of Surat Municipality and State Education Minister founded the institution with other Social activists of Surat for the education of visually impaired. Initially it was a residential Primary School for boys. Today it has expanded to higher secondary level to 12th Standard for both Boys and Girls. The school, hostel accommodation including board are totally free.
