The SCINDIA SCHOOL OLD BOYS’ ASSOCATION (SOBA) was registered under the United States of Gwalior, Indore & Malwa ( Madhya Bharat) Societies Registration Act of 1950, on 25th November 1959. The Mantle of running the organization was carried by many illustrious Scindians over the years under the leadership of the Principal of The Scindia School. HH Madhavrao Scindia with his futuristic vision launched SOBA of the new millennium through our website on 21st Oct ‘2000.
The next phase of evolution of SOBA was the restructuring of this organization. The Principal and the members firmly believed that the Old Boys Association was best run by the Old Boys themselves. The year 2003 thus, was a turning point in the history of Scindia School Old Boy’s Association.
The draft constitution of SOBA proposed a Central Committee was to be formed with adequate representation from regional chapters, in addition to representatives from other quarters along with a member of the silver jubilee batch and other special nominees. The Principal of the School, according to this charter would be a Permanent Member of the Executive Committee.
The organization has gone from strength to strength. The result was a proliferation of SOBAs with many chapters in India and abroad. SOBA has always been updated of the school, its affairs, its achievements and its celebrations. And it is this organization that makes the old boy family a closely knit group.
