About The Institute

The Mohammed Haji Saboo Siddik Institute (a Minority Institute) owes its existence to the munificence of the late Mohammed, son of Haji Saboo Siddik, who bequeathed a large sum of money for establishing, conducting and managing the Institute for imparting Vocational, Technical and Industrial Training and Education. Subsequently, when the concept of technical high school took shape, a sum of Rupees One Lakh was also received from the assets of his mother, Bai Jimba Bai, after whom one of the buildings has been named in the premises of the Institute.

Originally, the Institute was founded in 1936 as a trade school with the object of turning out artisans in some industrial arts and crafts. A major reorganization in its curriculum took place in the year 1945, as a result of which a few more trade and certificate courses were started and a technical high school was also opened.
