Apeejay Noida pledged to continue walking the path shown by Dr Paul.

Dr Stya Paul was an eminent industrialist, educationist, philanthropist, and freedom fighter. He realised quite early the importance of providing quality education to citizens, which, in turn, could contribute to nation-building. In line with his vision to set up not-for-profit educational institutions in India, he started with a small school in Jalandhar in 1967. Today, Apeejay boasts of a large number of schools and institutions for higher education, spread across various Indian cities, dedicated to imparting value-based education to promote man-making. 

Throughout his career, Dr Paul was actively associated with various social and cultural bodies. He went out of his way to help people in every way possible. He retained his zeal for hard work even in his advanced age. 

Dr Paul passed away on June 7, 2010.

“Dr Stya Paul ji was a great visionary and a true karamyogi who through his sheer determination, strong values and hard work rose to extraordinary heights. His lasting legacy of excellence will continue to inspire and guide us in all our endeavours.”
