Rayat Education Society

Dr. Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil laid the foundation of mass education in rural Maharashtra, which was free from consideration of caste, creed, sex and religion. His followers were inspired by his idealism, selflessness, sacrifice, dignity of labour and true cosmopolitanism. He realized his dream of educating the deprived and downtrodden sections of society by founding Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, initially at primary education level and slowly upgrading to secondary and higher education. Now the Sanstha has wide network of schools and colleges spread all over Maharashtra. The Sanstha also has adopted pro-active learning environment by exploiting the knowledge revolution. - Hon.Sharad Pawar, President, Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, Satara.
