Status of the institution

Dr. T. K. Tope Arts & Commerce Night College, Parel, Mumbai, established on 20th June 1984 (40 years in June 2024), permanently affiliated to the University of Mumbai, is a grant-in-aid, co-education institution.

Its an evening college, recognised by the UGC under 2f & 12b. Though it is not a minority institution, it basically works for the students coming from a working class background.

University of Mumbai has made the provision in its statutes to grant autonomy to its affiliated colleges. It has around 59 autonomous colleges as of Feb. 2024 out of which 12 colleges have been awarded empowered status. We have not thought about autonomy till date. But we wish to be recognised by the UGC as a college with potential for excellence (CPE).

College campus is located in the Parel area of the grand old city of Mumbai, which is considered as the financial capital of India. The campus area is about 0.72 acres (2943.17 sq. metres, 31680 sq. feet) and the built up area is 6115.70 sq. m. (65829.30 sq. ft.). See the BMC certificate for details.
