Indrashil University was established as a philanthropic initiative of its Founding Chancellor, Dr Rajiv I Modi in the loving memory of his parents, Shri Indravadan Ambalal Modi and Smt Shilaben Modi who laid the foundation stone of Cadila Pharmaceuticals Ltd.(CPL) in 1951. To honour their legacy of care and compassion, the university’s governing body and Dr Rajiv Modi are determined to holistically transform and develop the University into a hallmark of global academic excellence.
The Founder Chairman of CPL, Shri Indravadan A. Modi was a great visionary, yet an extremely humble and generous person.

Shilaben Modi offered unwavering support to him; she was the strength behind Shri I.A. Modi’s resolve to make medicines affordable to the most vulnerable section of our society.
