Senior College (Degree College)

Bharat Shikshan Mandal(BSM) is one of the reputed and well know registered trust engaged in providing educational facility from KG to Junior college. For the academic year 2016-17 the total number of students on our rolls is 58.The oldest among the various educational institutions of BSM is PATWARDHAN HIGH SCHOOL, which was established in 1902.Thus we have a long history for our endeavors in providing educational facility to students in Ratnagiri.

We are glad to announce that the Bombay University (Mumbai University) has granted permission to Bharat Shishkan Mandal, Ratnagiri to start a Senior College (Degree College) from the academic year 2016-17.

Based on their assessment of needs for colleges in various regions of Maharastra, the University has planned giving permission to start one senior college in the Kokan region. Among several aspirant the University decided to allot the permission to start a degree college to Bharat Shikshan Mandal, Ratnagiri. The selection process and paper work was completed early August, 2016 and after completing other technical formalities, we were ready to start the college on August 14, 2016. Being aware that we were deprived of about seven weeks of the academic year 2016-17 and since all teaching staff for arts and commerce streams was in place, we could start the classes immediately from August 17, 2016.We were aware that the number of students seeking admission in our college would be meager, since our college is starting late by about seven weeks and by which time most of the students seeking college admission would have secured admission in some college.
 Knowing that setting up laboratories for Science stream would take some more time, we decided to defer starting Science stream to academic year, 2017-18.

 To ensure that our students do not loose on portion of the syllabus which would have been covered during the lost time, we instructed the teaching staff to arrange extra lectures, even on holiday and by curtailing mid-term vacation. We are glad that the entire first semester portion has been fully and well covered before the first semester examination for academic year, 2016-17.

This will probably the first educational institute in Kokan region, which will provide educational facility from the KG to degree college.

Our Junior colleges for Arts is operational since 1983, junior college for commerce from 2007 and for science from 2008.Students passing HSc examination from our junior colleges would find it easy to seek admission to our Senior College, in the same premises and would be a major contributor to our student intake from year 2017-18.

We have recently constructed a new building of ground+ 2 architecture, which will make available seven class rooms of size, adequate to accommodate about 75 students each. The ground floor is intended to be used for library, principal’s room, teacher’s room and some other infrastructural needs, as per the University requirements.

We have one division each for arts and science and two divisions for commerce stream in our Junior college, which will require eight class rooms, adequate to accommodate 75+ students for the 11th and 12th standards. We have only 4 classrooms of required capacity available now and make temporary and ad-hoc arrangements to accommodate other classes. For the Senior College our need would be nine classrooms, space for laboratories and other infrastructural needs, as per university requirements. The presently available classrooms are inadequate to meet the demand of classrooms by the time we would start the TY BA/BSc/Commerce classes.

Thus we would require additional 7 classrooms and approximately6000 sft area for other infrastructural facilities for the senior college. Thus a total of approximately 10000 sft of carpet area will be required to be created by end of academic year 2017-18. We propose to do this by constructing a new building of ground+ 2 architecture, by demolishing one of our old school buildings. The construction cost of such a building is expected to be Rs 175 Lac, at present costs, plus an escalation of 10%.

We are very happy to send herewith a small broacher covering historical background, brief notes on our various educational institutions and our future plans and projects.

In the year 1974-75 new patter of 10+2 education was introduced. With increased demand for the +2 classes and for the convenience primarily of our own students passing 10th, Mandal decided to start junior college for the Arts stream in the year1983-84.

We were unable to star the Commerce and Science streams simultaneously, due to paucity of funds. However, although late, we started the Commerce stream in 2007 and the Science stream in 2008, with well-equipped laboratories.
