Padmashree Sardar Veeranagouda Patil along with his wife Smt. Nagamma Patil developed this institution with a number of educational institutions and hostels for the benefit of the poor and down trodden girls. He took keen interest in the upliftment of Harijans and hence he was chosen as President of Karnataka Harijan Provincial Board.
