About Our College
Babhalgaon is a small village situated 8 km. away from LATUR district. Late Shri Dagdojirao Deshmukh and the people of Babhalgaon have established Dayanand Shikshan Prasarak Mandal in 1954. As per the educational slogan of “Vidya Param Daivatam” they worked for the institute.
Hon. Late Vilasraoji Deshmukh Ex. chief minister of Maharashtra and cabinet minister of India is the backbone of our institute & Hon. Mr. Diliprao Deshmukh Ex.

This college is the center for overall personality development of rural students which stresses and strains more on qualitative aspect than quantitative.

The mission statement of the institution is “Vidya Param Daivatam.” College has been working for education and overall development of students particularly girls from rural area. It is our due responsibility to go via good, better, best stages to build the students not always to sheer perfection but yes near to it. It is a sensible task and we are tried to protect the “Gyandeep” of these innocent students.
