ImgRural masses of India have always been deprived of education and thereby job opportunities. This pathetic situation had attracted the attention of many social workers, especially a man very down-to-earth, who sacrificed his life for the welfare of society, Hon’ble Padamashree Dr. Vithhalrao Vikhe Patil. He had understood the poor state of farming & realized that education is mandatory for the upliftment of rural masses. We, his Successors are following the footprints of him and aim at imparting ‘Holistic Education’ to all.

The Arts Science & Commerce College, Rahata was established in 1997 with the noble ideals of providing a platform to the rural youths & empowerment of women through appropriate education. Today I am extremely happy to tell you that the college has glorious tradition of two decades and changed the scene of Shirdi and Rahata region. At Arts Science & Commerce College Rahata, we believe that a great responsibility is vested on us as the educators of modern world. Since the establishment of the college we have been striving hard to comprehend the broad significance of education while designing our mode of instruction. We provide number of opportunities to the students to sharpen their intelligence & enable them to accomplish their bright aspirations. As a result we have earned many laurels from government and semi-government. We also instill in them ethics that shapes and provide them a strong foundation to tackle the challenges of life. I hope the college which made its impact on the rural region of Shirdi & Rahata will carve its name on future of India and will work for betterment of the world.
