The Chairman of the Sreenidhi Institute of Science & Technology and Sreenidhi International School, Dr. Katikaneni Taher Mahhe, is a resident of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. An oft-quoted name in the field of education, Dr. K.T Mahhe began his entrepreneurial career in the early nineties, at the young age of 21 years, soon after completing his graduation from Osmania University. At that time, India was undergoing a phase of transitions; Dr. Mahhe realised early that emerging India needed proper educational institutions to navigate this rapid transformation.
Dr. Mahhe started out as a distributor for a leading consumer product MNCs in Andhra Pradesh, earning spectacular success as his company soon turned into a behemoth with an annual turnover of Rs. 200 crore. He also took charge of the publication and distribution of The Economic Times in AP, which gave him deep insights into the newspaper publishing industry. By the time he was 29, he began publishing an English daily named Andhra Pradesh Times.
In the education sector, he began with technical education before moving to school education. He established the Sreenidhi Institute of Science and Technology in 1997 and started offering cutting edge courses in Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science. Soon after, he set up an active industry- institution education platform to understand and adapt to rapidly advancing technologies. Over time, Sreenidhi College became a leader in the field of technical education. In a span of five years and a half, the institution was accredited by the National Board of Accreditation of AICTE. Recognition in its truest form came when Sreenidhi became the only private institution among 120 institutions from the region to be selected by the World Bank for assistance.

After closely observing the quality of students joining reputed professional educational institutions, Dr.K.T Mahhe realised the significance of imparting quality education to students at a young age. He established a School from Nursery to Grade 12th with state-of-the-art facilities. He scouted around the globe, visiting the best educational institutions everywhere to see their best practices which could be inculcated in this new institution. He adopted rapidly growing international curriculum along with the other established curriculum. This school called Sreenidhi International School is one of the leading private schools in Hyderabad today.

Dr.Mahhe is also at the helm of the KMR Foundation, set up in the memory of his father, K. Mahipathi Rao. Since its inception, the Foundation has undertaken several projects that seek to help the underprivileged in areas at the outskirts of Hyderabad city.

When we moved to India and considered few schools for my kids (Sindhu & Vivek Nadipalli), I had a hard time to decide which is the right school for them. I compared Sreenidhi with some other top schools, and decided to admit them in Sreenidhi. Now I feel that I had taken a right decision to choose Sreenidhi, and never regretted about it. I wanted to tell you about it but never had an opportunity to do so. I thought it would be a good time to express my feedback since Sindhu is going to graduate and we lose ties with Sreenidhi. Reasons for appreciation:

1. All the teaching and non-teaching staff are very professional, and take care of the students like their own kids, and take care of the parents like special guests.


2. In case of any information or help, it's instant and accurate.


3. Teachers are very friendly and proficient in their subjects.


4. Open door policy. Somebody could come directly and see any of the staff member without any appointment.


5. Very considerable. Especially, Santosh sir and Shanmugam sir.


Vivek has completed his 10th grade from Sreenidhi International, and now he's studying six year Medicine program in Youngstown State University in Ohio, US. He says that he misses the school.


After Sindhu's 8th Grade we wanted to move Sindhu to a different school because of the commuting from our home. She strongly resisted to move from Sreenidhi. That shows how much she loves her school and what she is doing at the school.

Once I needed something from you and I contacted Santosh sir. Sanotsh sir got it done within no time, and I submitted that letter to the US Institution. Unfortunately, the Institution wanted in a different format. It repeated several times but you both never showed your frustration, and cooperated through the end process. I have no more words to say about Sreenidhi but we are going to miss it once Sindhu graduates. Sorry to lose the connection with you all. Especially, Santosh sir Shanmugam sir and Saraswathi madam.


Please keep up good work.


Yours sincerely,

Upender Nadipalli
