Sri G.D.Naidu

He was a genius who was much ahead of his times. Known for his sharp intellect, innovative spirit and engineering skill, he pioneered products that broke the average mould. He won many laurels and awards internationally and set the groundwork for us to carry on the legacy.

Shri G.D.Naidu, a successful industrialist and a keen educationalist of South India, started two premier institutions in the year 1945, "Sir Arthur Hope College of Technology" and "Sir Arthur Hope Polytechnic".

He donated both the institutions to the Government. Both colleges are now known as "The Government College of Technology" and "The Government Polytechnic of Coimbatore" respectively.

Later in 1946, he started another institute in the name of Industrial Labour Welfare Association (ILWA), now known as G.D.Naidu Charities. His aim was to impart higher education with more emphasis on practical training so that students can get employment immediately.

Quote on G.D.Naidu by Sir C.V.Raman:

"G.D.Naidu was a great educator, an entrepreneur in many fields of engineering and industry, a warm-hearted man filled with love for his fellows and a desire to help them in their troubles and he is truly a man in a million - perhaps this is an understatement!"
