By the grace of WaheGuru, our institution has reached the summit of three “S” factors i.e standard, satisfaction and success.

He was a man of volcanic energy and a wonderful persona with empathetic heart who wanted to bring a revolutionary change in Bidar as it was considered as a laggard place in the aspect of educational development. His sleepless efforts made it a hub of education. He transformed his dream into a reality and today this torch of education ignited by him is carried on successfully.
