Chancellor Suresh Jain TMU Moradabad

Since the last 50 years, Shri Suresh Jain has been a prominent figure in the pan-India Jain community. He is actively associated with various social and religious societies and organizations at the national and regional levels as a prominent office bearer. His untiring efforts have been instrumental in pioneering the world’s tallest monolithic Jain idol of Lord Rishabhadeva, the first Jain tirthankar, at Mangi Tungi in Nashik district in Maharashtra. At 108 feet, the Statue of Ahimsa, as it is called, was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s tallest Jain statue in 2016. In recognition of Shri Suresh Jain’s selfless contributions in this regard, he was felicitated with the Bhagwan Rishabhadeva International Award in 2018 by the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Devendra Fadnavis in the gracious presence of Hon’ble President of India Shri Ram Nath Kovind.

Shri Suresh Jain has been a chartered member of the Rotary Club since 1974 and played an instrumental role in the eradication of poliovirus in Uttar Pradesh. He has been felicitated on different occasions by renowned organizations for his exemplary services to the community.

Shri Suresh Jain established the Teerthanker Mahaveer Hospital in 2008 to render best-in-class medical services to the community at a very reasonable cost.
