J. M. Patel College at Bhandara is a premier institution not only of the Gondia Education Society but also of the R.T.M.Nagpur University, and in the region as well. In order to spread the light of knowledge and education lit by Late Manoharbhai Patel, and to make it more pervasive, Late Natwarlal Patel came forward with all his generous contribution. Consequently, J. M. Patel College was set up in 1964 in the pious memory of Late Shri Natwarlal Patel’s father Late Shri Jashbhai Muljibhai Patel. It is worth mentioning that this college started as only Arts & Commerce College in the beginning. But thanks to unbounded zeal of the management, the principal and staff and other well-wishers of the institution, it has enormously risen almost to great heights within a short span of only four decades. Now this college imparts education in various disciplines like Arts, Commerce and Science upto the Post Graduation Level. An independent department of Computer Science was established in 1985. We were the first institute in Nagpur University to launch Computer Science Courses, beginning with PG Diploma in Computer Science & Application. The College now has nearly 4000 students studying in over 35 different UG, PG, certificate and diploma programmes.
