The Indian Armed Forces not only keep their personnel well trained but also look after various aspects of their welfare. In recent decades the Army Welfare Education Society (AWES) has been establishing educational institutions for children of Armed Forces personnel and also providing training for veterans to begin a second career as well as for enhancing the employability for their spouses. Providing good quality education from primary classes to professional courses for the children of Army personnel is a prime welfare activity conducted under the aegis of AWES headquartered at New Delhi.
 
AWES is already running 11 professional colleges in various disciplines such as medical, dental, fashion design, hotel management, engineering, management, nursing, education, law  etc and 137 Army Public Schools with the aim of providing quality education at affordable cost.
 
With a view to providing higher education in law in Maharashtra, Headquarters Southern Command, Pune, has taken the initiative to open an Army Law College at Kanhe(50 Km from Pune Railway Station on Old Pune – Mumbai Highway) to commence BBA LLB ‘Five Years Integrated Course’  under Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU)from the Academic Year 2018-19.  The approval for this college with an annual intake of 60 students with hostel facilities is under consideration with the Government of Maharashtra, SPPU and the Bar Council of India.  The college will be run under the aegis of AWES endeavors to make these colleges‘Centres of Excellence’ in professional education is evident from the fact that three of its colleges are accredited by National Assessment and Accreditation Council with ‘A’ Grading. Also surveys  by magazines like Outlook, The Week, Global Human Resource Development Centre Times and Education World have also ranked AWES professional colleges and Army Public Schools very high.
