"Education is an ornament in prosperity and refuse in adversity"- by Aristotle
ORIGIN OF POLYTECHNIC :
A seed of thought to establish technical institutions in the vicinity for the paddy enriched area of Gangavati to provide the rural students the benefit of technical education started to sprout with the establishment of the industrial training institutes of Agalakera and Kanakagiri in the year 2007-2008 respectively.
The city is surrounded by many industries like Kalyani Ferrous Industries, Kirloskar Ferrours Industries, Sponge Iron Industries, Ultratech Cement Company, Indira Power Plant, Power Grid Corporation Mallapura, Saw Mills, Paddy Mills and Sugar Factories. So there is very high demand of technical students and there is need of Polytechnics and Engineering Colleges.
The grievances of the parents and the struggling of the students to go far away places of about 100 to 200 Kms. for studies forced us to open at least a polytechnic institute thus, with blessing of Sri Guru Mulliarjuna Maha Swamiji M.S.M.S. Rural Polytechnic was established in the year 2009 by laying foundation stone at Marali, 7 Kms away from Gangavati towards Raichur with an aim to be provide value based technical education.
The institute is recognized by the Govt. of Karnataka and affiliated to AICTE, New Delhi.
