About BKS

Bassein Kerala Samajam came into being in the year 1960 with the initiative of few Keralites. The objective of the Samajam was to build a common platform for Malayalees irrespective of their caste, religion, economic or social status and also to look after the interests of the members and to interact socially and culturally with the local population.

In its fruitful existence of almost 50 years, the Samajam could give shape to a variety of activities for the benefit of the society by taking initiatives in:

  • Distributing the basic amenities like water, milk and kerosene, etc. to the people.
  • Encouraging the youth in sports and arranging volley ball tournament by inviting best teams from Mumbai.
  • Annual Cultural Programmes
  • An ayurvedic dispensary was started with free consultation
  • In 1972 BKS, in its pursuit of serving the society through education, started BKS English High School. The school has grown by leaps and bounds and now has a student strength of about  1400 students in an academic year.
  • In 2010 Samajam also started a Junior college for all streams.
  • We have a well maintained library and reading room
