Pragati.. means progress – not only ours but of all the sections of society, by providing globally equipped study material with up-to-date knowledge, to meet the requirements of everyone.
In 1955 PRAGATI PRAKASHAN was established by Mr. K. K. Mittal in Meerut, publishing books of Mathematics in English and Hindi both for Class XII and thereafter published many other books up to 1963. In 1964 we entered in the publication of Mathematical Physics books by an Indian author Dr. B. S. Rajput, ex-Vice Chancellor of Kumaon, and Garhwal University (Garhwal). Our publication has the distinction of being the 1st publication in India to introduce books for P.G. students by Indian authors. Thereafter, alongwith other books, we published Hand Book of Electronics and topics-wise books for M. Sc. Chemistry, Mahtematics and Physics written by eminent authors.
In 1975, a Society for the progress of science was formed under the dynamic guidance of world renowned mathematician Dr. J. N. Kapoor, then Vice Chancellor of Meerut University, with the financial assistance and technical know-how provided by Pragati Prakashan. Society started publication of International Research Journal “ACTA CIENCIA INDICA” in field of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry and maintaining highest position in the field of International Research periodicals.
The same year we also stepped into the field of books on environmental science author-crafted by Dr. V.P. Kudesia, having specialization in the said field, who did his D. Sc. from Belgium, and thereafter, we published about 15 books on environmental science by eminent directors, Professors and Scientists.
In 1982 we ventured into professional courses by bringing out books on production and operational management written by Dr. B.S. Goel, Director (presently Chairman) of Institute of Professional Excellence and Management, Ghaziabad. This was the topic on which no books by any Indian author was hither to available. In the year 2000 U.P. Technical University, came into being and to meet the requirements of the blooming technocrats we published 20 titles for various courses for B. Tech students. In the same year we published books on Information Technology, which are unique in their composure and are prescribed in various Indian Universities and Institutes as text books and reference books.
To our pleasure, in our panel we have more than 160 authors of eminence, placed at glorious positions in their respective fields in India and abroad as Vice Chancellors of dignified universities, Directors of Higher Education, Directors, Chairpersons of Institutes, Principals, University Professors, Heads of Faculties and free lancing renowned experienced authors of repute.
In nutshell, we specialize in publishing books on science subjects for Graduation and Post-Graduation in Management, Environment and Engineering covering the courses of almost all Indian Universities and colleges. In additions, we have published a number of books for various competitive entrance examinations for Engineering and Medical colleges and Institutes. Summarizing we have published more than 600 titles on different subjects which enjoy wide publicity and have received all-round appreciation and have the privilege of being exported to develoed and developing countries.
