Officer in Charge
I have the pleasure to welcome you to the MGI & RTI Website.
The Mahatma Gandhi Institute and the Rabindranath Tagore Institute are polynodal institutions in the educational landscape of Mauritius. The foundation stone  of the  Institute was laid on 3rd June 1970 by the then Prime Minister of India, Shrimati Indira Gandhi and the then Prime Minister of Mauritius, Sir Seewoosagar Ramgoolam. Both Institutes are dynamic and abreast of our times and function  effectively thanks to the schools and departments attached to them. In keeping with the trends of modern technology, this website will provide you with the information you require about the institutions.
