Our Inspiration

Inpirational Leadership

DCSMAT Institutions is promoted by the DC Kizhakemuri Foundation. The institutions draw their inspiration from the innovative leadership of the late DC Kizhakemuri, whose life as a teacher, freedom fighter, social activist, writer and visionary leader and innovative publisher earned him love, respect and immense goodwill during his lifetime, which continue till date. He is the man behind the paperback revolution in India making books affordable to the masses. His relentless efforts finally prompted the then Travancore-Cochin Governor to abolish taxes on books, and subsequently the then Prime Minister asked the states across India to implement it
