It is a residential institute affiliated to Savitribai Phule Pune University, offering five years integrated BBA LLB course. “The best thing about the army is that it does not stop until achieving the pinnacle. Be it education, engineering or healthcare services the facilities attached to the armed forces have been doing phenomenal work, I have been inspired by the work ethics of army since the beginning and decided to support the expansion of Army Law College through my humble contribution,” added Daryanani.
With this expansion, the 2nd and 3rd-year students would get an opportunity to utilize the new classrooms. The other buildings and land would be put to use according to the desires of the army. As of now, there are two army law colleges in the nation, the first one was established in Mohali and the second one is the college at Kanhe. Daryanani trust was instrumental in the inauguration of the college which has been running successfully for a year now.
