The Minister of State, Home, Govt. of Gujarat, Shri Harshbhai Sanghvi, and Torrent Group Chairman, Shri Sudhirbhai Mehta, inaugurated the hostel in the presence of dignitaries and members of JITO Ahmedabad team and JITO Apex team. Shri Prakashbhai Sanghvi, Chairman of JITO Ahmedabad Education Trust, stated that this unique hostel is the first to include all four tributaries of the Jain Community students (Shwetambar, Digambar, Terapanth, and Sthanakvasi) in one place.

Every student deserves the best facilities to build their future, and this hostel is designed to meet their needs. The Hostel Project Convener, Shri Rushabhbhai Patel, said that JITO Ratnamani Hostel is located in the heart of Ahmedabad, near the Education hub, and provides the best facilities to the students.

The founder Chairman of JITO Ahmedabad, the late Shri Utkarshbhai Shah, and many other Bhamashas of JITO Ahmedabad had dreamt of this one-of-a-kind hostel to provide facilities to students living in remote places to study in Ahmedabad without having to compromise with their Jain lifestyle. This hostel takes care of all such minute necessities and has been built with a very innovative and strong foundation. This dream could not have been possible without the support and guidance of the donors and seasoned members. On this occasion, all the donors were felicitated with a memento and applauded.
