Amravati city, a regional headquarter of Amravati Division of Maharashtra state, is well known as an educational hub in the region, together with its social, spiritual, historical and political advancements. Historical landmarks such as the Amba Devi Temple, ‘Koundinyapur’ a place from where Lord Krishna eloped with Rukhmini from the venue of the wedding ceremony, and Chikhaldara a lush green envigourating hill station in the Satpura valley. Above all, Amravati is also identified as a sacred land as it is the birthplace of Saints like Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj and Saint Gadge Baba. As a recognition of the dissemination of Gadge Baba's message of cleanliness and eradication of superstition, the Amravati University, to which our college is affiliated, was renamed as “Sant Gadge Baba Amravati University, Amravati”. The Shri Shivaji Education Society, Amravati, was founded in 1932, by the Late Dr. Punjabrao Deshmukh, a leader of the peasants, the First Agriculture Minister of Independent India, and a Member of the “Constitution Draft Committee” for the Govt. of India.
