Manovikas Kendra started its journey in a very modest way in 1974 on 28th January (Basant Panchami Day), with Dr. (Smt.) Sharada Fatehpuria as its Founder. It is a non-governmental and not-for-profit organization registered as a Society under West Bengal Societies Registration Act. It was one of the foremost non-govt. organizations in the country to start training and research of individuals with special needs. This logo was designed to celebrate 40 years.
