Kasegaon Education Society is one of the leading educational organizations in the Western Maharashtra. It was established in 1945 by late Shri. Rajarambapu Patil, the leading statesman. Considering the need of time, the society focused its attention on taking the education to the threshold of the rural masses. The society started schools in the nearby villages and a hostel (for backward class student at Kasegaon).
After untimely and sad demise of Shri. Rajarambapu Patil in 1984, it was Hon. Jayant Patil, his son, who alike his father entered in public life through educational activities. He shouldered the responsibility of Kasegaon Education Society. Hon. Jayant Patil’s directives are taking the society with time and diversifying its educational facilities. Today, Kasegaon education society has total 50 educational institutions that include school, an agricultural college, a nursing institute, polytechnic, Art, Commerce and Science colleges, a pharmacy college and Engineering and Management institute. Society provides education to more than 25,000 students with its team of more than 1350 employees. The society has mainly three Arts, Commerce and Science Colleges, two information technology institutes, an Engineering College, Two Polytechnics, two management institutes, a nursing institute, an agricultural Polytechnic, a Pharmacy college and an I.B. School at BKC, Mumbai.
The society is conferred with prestigious awards like ‘Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Dalitmitra Puraskar’ and ‘State Award for educational institutes’.
