Our CEO, Mrs Gauri Kanitkar

Anuroop Wiwaha Sanstha was established by Mrs Anjali Kanitkar in 1975 and has, since its inception, worked hard in the field of match-making with a passion and personal touch. Mrs Gauri Kanitkar, daughter of the famous Vasantrao 'Khauwale' Patankar, too, got associated with Anuroop and started working alongside her mother-in-law after being married into the family in 1981. With nearly 4 decades under its belt, Anuroop has lived up to its name which means 'ideal'. With more than 50,000 successful marriages to show, it is fair to say that after heaven, the best place where marriages are made is Anuroop. If you don't believe us, ask those 50,000 candidates who completely agree with us.

Here, we offer you a number of services and help which is essential for you to choose your life partner. Anuroop conducts more than 40 events throughout the year, which include the melavas, group sessions, workshops and seminars. These seminars include pre-marital counselling for parents and the candidates (prospective brides and grooms), talk shows regarding the problems and issues that are common with marriage, lectures by experts regarding horoscope etc.

Mrs Gauri Kanitkar initially began looking after the accounts at Anuroop and worked full-time at a nationalised bank for over 20 years. Gradually, she began to take charge of the operations at Anuroop and focused fully on it after opting for a voluntary retirement from her service in 2000. Under her Leadership, Anuroop has expanded with several branches in Maharashtra and a couple of them outside the state too. She has also worked as a family counsellor at Muktangan De-addiction Centre and is certified in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy of IPH, Thane and performs pre-post marital counselling courses.

Actively engaging with youth, Mrs Kanitkar has networked with prospective brides and grooms, young married couples, parents of prospective brides and grooms and has made it her mission to simplify the process of finding the right match with help of her counselling.
