Ours is a jain samaj. Jains are basically business oriented people with a great reputation in the society. We were recognized as a “Mahajan” of society. In 1934, few families from Zalawad district (see map) shifted to Ahmedabad for new businesses opportunities as well as for higher education and started growing and consequently they formed an organization called “Gnati Mandal” recently better known as ”Shri Zalawad Vishasrimali Sthanakvasi Jain Samaj”. Initially gnati mandal was conducting religious, social activities pertaining to manavrahat (Sadharmik Sahay) from the premises of Hon. Secretary. The organization has now grown from 62 families to 1265 families.

As a result of growth and from donation, samaj acquired its first office at Pritamnagar area of Paldi of around 400 sq. ft. area. Samaj took the giant leap in the year 2008 by purchasing ultramodern premises at “Shantam” in posh area of Navrangpura having approx. 5,000 sq. ft. area with efforts of committee members and honourable donors. This premises contains administration office, board room, computer room, auditorium with latest facilities and covered terrace, which is fullfulling all dreams of members and their children for uplifting of their talent, education, knowledge, health, spirituality and character.

Samaj aims at balanced and overall growth of the members and endeavors not to restrict them only to religious activity and spiritual progress. Instead samaj has decided to address all current as well as future social, educational, medical and economical issues of the members so that every member of our samaj will grow overall in such a way that original reputation of jain as a “Mahajan” will be restored.

We have also decided to dedicate our progress strongly to our nation.

OUR MOTTO “ WE GROW, FAMILIES GROW, SAMAJ GROWS”.
