Sri Pradhu Sarangadev Shivacharyaji

with his modern outlook


Sri Padmaraj Vidyavadhak Samstha is a prestigious institution of this area which was established with the blessings of H.H. Sri Channaveer Swamiji of Sarangamath, Sindgi in the year 1969 supported by a band of philanthropists.

It was with a vision of imparting higher education to the socially and economically backward students of this area, the institution came into being and it has realized its dream to a greater extent.

H.H.Sri Pradhu Sarangadev Shivacharyaji, with his modern outlook, is guiding this institution. Presently it is running sixteen educational institutions ranging from K.G. to U.G.



Catering to the educational needs of the children of rural folk, Arts Faculty was started in 1972. Sindgi being a business centre for many of the surrounding villages, the management thought it fit to impart the knowledge of Commerce. As a result, Commerce faculty came in to being in the year 1977. As there was a demand for science faculty from the students of our area science faculty came in to existence in the year 1988.
In view of the changing global scenario, the institution has started BCA College in the year 2008.
We have sought a permanent affiliation of our College from the Karnatak University, Dharwad and of late it has been affiliated to Rani Channamma University, Belagavi. The College gets liberal grants for infrastructural as well as academic development from the University Grants Commission (UGC).
