After blazing a trail of changes, developments
and achievements for the College,
Dr. Perpetua Machado had opted for voluntary retirement with effect from 31st July, 2014.
Taking over, is Dr. Geeta Ibrahim,
another smart, dynamic lady with a visionary attitude in her mind and love and care in her heart.
Nirmala Niketan, thus, welcomes her as our new Principal.

Various dignitaries such as Principals, Administrators, Directors and Presidents of the colleges of the Asian Region participated in this conference. A MOU was also signed by the principal on 31st October 2013 between College of Home Science, Nirmala Niketan, Mumbai, India and Fu-Jen University, Taiwan in order to promote academic exchange and cooperation.
