Brief info

Shri Sandip Kamdar is Managing Director of Arihant Institute for CA, Ahmedabad. It was Shri Kamdar’s vision to establish an institute to nurture talent in chartered accountancy in the city that started the institute.
Born and brought up in a small village Vinchhiya in Rajkot District, he took his primary school education from Vinchhiya. He studied for his higher secondary and college education at Ahmedabad in A.G. High School and H.L. Commerce College. After completing B.Com. he pursued Chartered Accountancy from Bombay and passed his C.A. Exam in 1996. While studying, he stayed in various hostels in Ahmedabad and Bombay. Despite many difficulties, he pursued his studies with hard work. Soon after his CA, he worked for about six months with a private company. He was, however, not satisfied with the work and therefore he chose to be self-employed. He started his profession by personal tuitions to a group of 3 to 5 students. It was during this phase that he developed his skill for teaching. As he derived immense satisfaction by imparting education to students, and due to his sincere nature and dedication towards his chosen work, more students approached him for personal tuitions.
Inspired by his initial success and encouraged by his family and friends, he started his first coaching class in a small room at Paldi, Ahmedabad. This initial success encouraged him to put in hard work which saw his venture grow steadily. In the years to come, he became an entrepreneur in the field of education. His dream however was always to establish a well-recognized coaching and training institute for CA. This fructified in the form of the Arihant House in the year 2004. This has been possible due to Shri Kamdar’s dedication to his work.
Today, Arihant is a well-known name for CA in Ahmedabad as well as pan India. It offers coaching courses to more than 4000 students every year.
