Rayat Shikshan Sanstha was founded by a great visionary Padmabhushan Dr. Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil, who dedicated his whole life for the education of the deprived and downtrodden people of the society. The emblem of the Sanstha, a ‘banyan tree’, indicates its wide spread educational wings having in all 675 branches majority established in the rural and mofussile part of Maharashtra and Karnataka. Chhatrapati Shivaji College is the first college of Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, established in 1947 by Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil himself. It was his first endeavor in higher education. This college is named after the great Maratha warrior King Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, because Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was one of his great inspirators. This college is one of the important branches of the mighty banyan that spreads its education arms bronching broad and along.
