GV Acharya Institute of Engineering and Technology, Shelu
GV Acharya Institute of Engineering and Technology is located near Shelu Railway station (CST-Karjat route, Central Rly). While it takes 15 minutes to walk from the station if you take the cemented road, it's less 10 mins if you go by the “short-cut” which goes right through the farms. So not a mean task, that is, once you get to Shelu railway station!
GV Acharya Institute of Engineering and Technology was establised in 2009. The large campus houses a polytechnic and a management institute apart from the engineering college. While most of the contsruction is complete, a few parts still need a little finishing. However, the labs are well-designed and carry sufficient equipments. The library is awesome. Hostel facility is available but it is located in Neral.
Rs. 60,000/ year
Very good faculty. Many professors are from Vidyalankar, the famous coaching classes. All the teachers are very co-operative. The students are fond of the principal who is surprisingly very friendly.
Very strict. You have maintain a 90% record if you wish to score well in your internal marks. If the attendance goes below 75% the students are given strict warnings and are made sign a document stating the he/she will improve his attendance in the next semester. There’s no mercy for those having below 50% attendance and are detained straight-away.
About 10% of the students come from nearby local areas. Whereas the others are from Mumbai-city or Central suburbs.
Food quality is okay but space crunch during lunch hours is an issue. Fried rice is the most preferred variety among the students and it costs about Rs. 30/-. Some of the students have complained about the quality of food citing an example of coffee which is almost water.
The first batch passed out in 2013. However, no data is available yet.

Good for those who wish to study and not for those who wish for only “masti”. It's one of the better colleges in the Kalyan-Karjat belt.
