The Navyug Vidyabhavan Trust came into existence in the year 1965 as a brain child of Late Principal Dr. D. G. Vashi, an eminent educationist and visionary.
In those days the institutes of higher education in various disciplines managed by the Sarvajanik Education society were pocketed on the eastern banks of the river Tapti and the areas on the opposite side of the river were not fully developed.

Late Prin. Dr. D. G. Vashi, then a professor of Statistics at Bilimora College, foresaw the need of an institute of higher education in this area. He was neither rich nor influential, politically or otherwise. However, he succeeded in materializing his concept into reality and decided to start Arts and Science College on Rander Road area.
As his idea and cause both were noble, like minded people joined hands with him and Navyug Arts and Science College came into existence in the year 1966 with an humble strength of 300 students
