Government Arts College Shahera was established in 2008. The college was started in a school building of Shri. S.J. Dave High School, Shahera and shifted to its present premises of Kankari village in 2013. It was affiliated to Gujarat University, Ahmedabad till academic year 2015-2016. But at present the college is under the affiliation of newly established university of Panchmahals namely Shri Govind Guru University, Godhra. Our college is located between Godhra and Lunawada of Panchmahals district. It is 20 kms far from Godhra and 24 kms away from Lunawada.
The college which had a very humble beginning in 2008 has now state-of-the-art infrastructure with more than 1700 students. With pride we can say that Government Arts College, Shahera is an accredited institute. Following the completion of the first cycle of NAAC accreditation, we have secured Grade “B” with a CGPA of 2.49. The grade, no doubt explains about our standard on the national level and it is quite a satisfactory achievement for a new institute like ours. But the grade does not just tell everything about our college fraternity. The path here is as important as the destination. Throughout the whole process of various stages of this cycle, our colleagues displayed a marvelous level of synergy. All of us, the teaching and non-teaching staffs worked as a closely-knit team and students also co-operated whole-heatedly whenever needed.

Ragging is a disturbing reality in the higher education system of our country. Despite the fact that over the years ragging has claimed hundreds of innocent lives and has ruined careers of thousands of bright students, the practice is still perceived by many as a way of ‘familiarization’ and an ‘initiation into the real world’ for young college-going students. Other organisations/bodies working in this field have also attempted to define ragging, the variety of definitions being reflective of differences in perspective.
