Where It All Began
A vision was born in the heart of Thane, above an ice cream parlour. Inside the cozy living room of Mr. K. P. Singh’s humble one-bedroom apartment, young minds gathered, questions were asked, and dreams were nurtured. It was more than a learning center; it was a place where futures were forged, friendships blossomed, and the aspiration to study abroad was ignited.
From casual chats to serious study sessions, Mr. Singh’s living room was a place where passion met purpose, where weekend classes turned into something extraordinary. The need for a grander stage was inevitable. And thus, in 1999, IMFS Thane was established, setting the foundation for what has become a beacon for international education.
