He ensured that the educational hub Vallabh Vidyanagar and the Industrial zone Vitthal Udyognagar are well-equipped so that the students from nearby villages can get the opportunity to learn and avail of technical training. With this noble objective, he established the GUJARAT AUDYOGIC VIKASH & VYAVSAYEE TALIM TRUST, KARAMSAD. The Trust was registered on 11/05/1979 under Bombay Public Trust Act No. F/177/Anand and Societies Registration Act Guj/149/Anand.
