India Cultural League was founded in 1942 by a small group of young people in the leadership of Late Shri. Amalendu Roye with the objective of inculcating the spirit of patriotism in the youth through cultural and sports activities. The organization was called “Youth Culture Centre” and had the motto of “Unity and Progress through Culture”. After independence it was re-christened as “India Cultural League” which since then is actively promoting Art, Music, Drama, Dance, Sports and Education.

Right from 1942 ICL has been conducting many grand programs like, “All India Athletic Meet”, “All India Cultural Conference”. “Music Concerts”, “Dance Programs” etc. Music competitions are held every year in Shanmukhananda Hall in various genres of Indian Classical Music, both vocal and instrumental. In the world of sports, particularly in the history of football culture in Mumbai, ICL has played a significant role by winning many prestigious championships. To name a few , Harwood Football in 1951-52, IFA Shield in 1953, and Ram Varma Memorial Tournament in 1954.

ICL entered the educational field in 1975 with the formation of “India Culture League Education Society” (ICLES). It chose Vashi, Navi Mumbai as its “Karma Bhoomi” to cater to the educational needs of the wards of "Project Affected Families” (PAF) of CIDCO, the wards of Koli Samaj and the wards of thousands of families from all over India who have chosen the fast growing Navi Mumbai as their home.

The ICL Junior college was started in 1978 and the degree college in 1984. The ICL High school and Mon Ami School started in 1980. The NMMC has lauded the contribution of our founder by naming the road opposite to the college as “Amalendu Roye Marg”. In 1998 under the able leadership of Shri R.S. Jhunjhunwala, the college was renamed as “Motilal Jhunjhunwala College”

Today, our college has achieved the status of a premier institution of Navi Mumbai through dedicated and devoted services of many stalwarts who were and are associated with our institution. We have the proud privilege of being associated with eminent Indians like Justice Bhagawati, Justice Tendulkar, Justice Lentin and leading film personalities like Bimal Roy, S.D. Burman, Manna Dey, Basu Bhattacharya (our ex-president) and many more.

From culture to freedom movement, to sports to education, India Culture League has come a long way. We carry on the spirit of our founder members and continue to play a catalystic role in spreading the education and carry on the mission of “Education Maketh Man”.
