In seeking to fulfill the above stressed objectives, The Dhanraj Baid Jain College, an offshoot of TEAM Trust was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Thiru. M.Karunanidhi on the 30th June, 1972 at Mahalingapuram in Kodambakkam. Later the college was housed in a mammoth building with an expansive 42 acres campus in Jyothi Nagar, Okkiyam Thorappakkam, Chennai – 97. The foundation stone for the new college building was laid by the Governor of Tamil Nadu Shri.K.K.Shah on the 4th May 1974. Then the Education Minister Shri.V.R.Nedunchezian was the special invitee. Its cardinal objectives were to introduce and popularise high quality Commerce-oriented education. To look after the affairs and administration of these educational institutions, an exclusive Management Committee was constituted comprising men of proven métier who were also known to cherish noble ideals and pursue them with heroic resolution.
LOCATION The College is situated in a sprawling campus, some distance away from the seashore. The same place was, some three decades ago, a sleeping village, devoid of any facility. Today it is abuzz with intense activities, thanks to the pioneering effort of TEAM Trust in founding the institution in this remote part away from the Metropolis. An all-round development in and around the College has taken place, which incredibly transformed totally the landscape, in the last thirty years. The place is at present crowded by industrial houses; it has the pride of having the Tidel Park (Software corridors) and a string of business houses engaged in giving accent to Information Technology. A well laid out Highways Road links all the places and serves as arterial road.
