Digambarrao Bindu arts & commerce college, Bhokar Dist. Nanded is run by the parent institution late Digambarrao Bindu Smarak Samiti, Bhokar Dist. Nanded has a glorious history of its own. It was founded as an Under Graduate College offering arts & commerce courses. It was actually opened in June 1989. From June 1989 it was affiliated to the then Marathwada University Aurangabad till 1994, and when Swami Ramanand Teerth Marathwada University, Nanded came into existence, since then it is affiliated to S.R.T.M.U. Nanded.
The Senior Freedom Fighter and social worker Shri. Bhujangrao Patil Kinhalkar founded it. His intention was to make the area as far as possible educationally self-contained. Nanded District in Marathwada region has been declared as educationally backward. Bhokar, one of the Talukas of the district is located on the boundaries of Maharashtra & Andhra Pradesh, it is most backward part of the district. Most of the population in the area belong to tribal & backward communities like SC/ST’s who do not have much access even to primary education, then higher education in such a scenario was distant matter.
Therefore, being a visionary person, he laid the objective of Digambarrao Bindu arts & Commerce College to offer a sound, secular and moral education both for boys & girls. He always emphasized on girl’s education. The key to the whole character of the college, therefore, is to produce tolerant, humane & magnanimous people.
Hence, from its opening to still today Digambarrao Bindu Arts & Commerce College prepared number of students to meet the challenges of the millennium and acquires better career opportunities both in private, government & public sectors. The credit of it goes directly to the disciplined administration, hard working teaching & non-teaching staff, healthy support in the form of text, reference books, journals, subject periodicals, magazines from the central library.
Digambarrao Bindu Arts & Commerce College has also maintained a dress code not only for students but for employees also. It helps to improve uniformity in diversity.
Apart from the regular curricular activities since its opening it has always attempted to foster and maintain a healthy atmosphere of academic and social discipline and sound education through organizing number of co-curricular, extra-curricular and extension activities to develop students in all round way.
