The D.G. Ruparel College of Arts, Science and Commerce is a college in Matunga, Mumbai, India. It is affiliated with the University of Mumbai, and has been referred to as "prestigious" by the Times of India. [1]

Ruparel College was founded in 1952. Its campus occupies ten acres of land in Matunga, an inner suburb of Mumbai. The campus features green landscaping with trees and a botany garden, and is known for its attractiveness. It offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, including Ph.D. programs in chemistry, physics, and zoology, and has an enrollment of around 1,500 students. [1]

Ruparel College is certified as an A grade college, the third highest rating, indicating an institutional score of 85-90 on a 100 point scale, by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council of India. Its most recent assessment by the NAAC was in 2002-2003. Ruparel College has 64 permanent teachers and 23 ad hoc teachers. Of its permanent teachers, 22 hold Ph.D. degrees. Several faculty members are engaged in original research in Economics, English, Philosophy, Psychology, Chemistry, Botany, Physics, Mathematics, and Zoology. [1]

Ruparel attracted attention when it began producing a string of merit list winners, beginning in the early 1980s. In 2005, three of the top ten student merit list winners, and three of the top ten faculty merit list winners, for the Maharashtra State Mumbai division were from Ruparel. Ruparel has been recommended by education consultants as the best college in Mumbai for science. [1]

The school has a strong sports program and has produced several winners of the Arjuna award and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Award, and several cricket stars. It also has strong extracurricular programs in chess and yoga, and its junior Kho Kho team has won the state trophy seventeen times. [1]

The D. G. Ruparel NCC Unit has an equally prestigious history. The unit is attached to the 3 Mah Bn NCC and has produced over 40 NCC cadets who went on to join the Indian Armed Forces. The list of over 30 cadets who have participated in the Republic Day Parade at New Delhi over the years is also a matter of great pride. [1]

The college was one of the first in India to provide a Women’s Development Cell to focus on providing support specifically for female students and faculty. [1]
