The Promoters of Keystone Group are extremely passionate about the vision of transforming the experience in Higher Education and grooming leaders who are not only the best and most successful well-rounded professionals but also good human beings with strong ethics, character and integrity.

The Keystone Group of Institutions is promoted by a group of NRIs with vast technical and managerial expertise acquired through their education in top US colleges/universities and years of work experience in senior leadership roles and exposure in global corporate giants like American Express, Interpublic Group, JP Morgan Chase, Nokia Siemens. ! The promoters after spending up to 14+ years in United States of America decided to return to their motherland and contribute to INDIA RISING at the grass roots level with a mission to transform the experience in higher education! To further this cause, the promoters formed a charitable trust back in July 2005 – Shree Kalka Devi Education Trust – a fitting tribute to the Goddess of Time and Change and the one seen as the Greatest Protector of all! The group then selected SURAJGARH – which literally translates into CASTLE OF THE RISING SUN – a location with fitting name to the vision of the group. The Keystone campus is a fully integrated residential one offering UG and PG degrees in the heart of the educational hub near Pilani.
