Kankrej Taluka kelavni Mandal, Thara managed Smt.K.K.Shah Arts & Smt. L.B.Gunjaria Commerce College, was established in1986. The College is located in the distantly remote and socially, economically and backward region of north Gujarat surrounded by villages with less exposure to formal and quality education. Before its inception, there was no scope for higher education for the students of this region in the vicinity of 60 to 90 kilometers. Thus, the common lay man of this region could not afford to send their wards distant cities for Higher Education. Moreover, higher education for girls was still a long awaited dream in this area. It was during this time that Late Shri Shantilal Chhotalal Bhagat, the Ex-MLA and the founder of Kankrej Taluka Kelavni Mandal, laid the first seed of Higher Education which flourishes today as one of the premier centres of quality education and learning since 1986. This institution has proved to be an oasis to the educationally deprived barren land of Thara. Since 1986, the Institution caters to the needs of Higher Education, especially to the girls of Thara and the adjoining regions. The College which initiated with just 108 students in 1986, today throbs with more than 2000 students in various disciplines and course.
The College offers a range of main subjects like Commerce, English, Gujarati, Sanskrit and Economics at undergraduate level and M.A. in Sanskrit, Gujarati, Economics and M.Com. in Accountancy.
