Shri C S Agarwal was the guiding spirit behind the establishment of City Educational and Social Welfare Society and its ventures in the field of professional education. He was himself an educationist par excellence who held very responsible positions in the field of education in the State of Uttar Pradesh. He was Secretary, U.P. Board of High School and Intermediate, Allahabad, finally retiring as Joint Director (Education), Uttar Pradesh. He was a visionary in the field of education and was the motivating force and guiding spirit in the establishment of our first professional institution, Meerut Institute of Engineering & Technology ( MIET ) of which he was also the Founder-Chairman. He was also the Founder-Director of City Vocational Public School, Meerut, a 10+2 educational venture which not only educates students but also encourages their vocation (aptitude). Shri Agarwal was loved and respected by one and all for his qualities of sincerity, diligence, farsightedness, kindness and patience.
Though no more with us, his noble soul and holy spirit continue to guide us in generating innovative ideas in the area of technical education to effectively meet the challenges of 21st century and to produce trained manpower who will prove to be ace players in the emerging global economy. On this auspicious occasion of commencing a new technological institute, NIET, we pay our homage to him and pledge to take it to even higher heights.
