Dr. Vijay D Patil, Chancellor of DY Patil University, has been instrumental in making our University a hub for global education in the state of Maharashtra. His efforts and achievements have extended to the other sections of society as well, namely healthcare and sports. The DY Patil Hospital and DY Patil Stadium are recognised as huge landmarks in the city of Navi Mumbai. Dr. Vijay D Patil has always put in efforts against all odds and by sheer determination, has managed to put Navi Mumbai on the global map. For his tremendous work over the years, he was bestowed with the honour of ‘Navi Mumbai City Icon’ by Awaaz Today- a credible 24×7 premium infotainment channel in Navi Mumbai.


Dr. Vijay D Patil, who was also invited as the Guest of Honour at the Awaaz Today Stars Awards 2021, received his award from Smt. Mandatai Mhatre (MLA). He also spoke his words of wisdom to the audience, many of whom were winners of the other awards themselves. Dr. Vijay D Patil credited his success to his father, Dr. D Y Patil (Founder- D Y Patil Group) for always instilling the right values in him. He stressed on the fact that having the right attitude was the most important quality for being successful in any field. He believes that it is that quality that helped him build and expand on the DY Patil University, Hospital, and Stadium. Another important highlight of his speech was that every successful person, albeit in any field, should have a ‘problem-solving’ mindset and not merely be a ‘passenger’ in life. According to him, it is these people who have the vision to stand out from the others and are the pioneers in their respective fields.
