Establishment of P.T.S.P. Mandal, Manwath
In the Marathwada, Parbhani District in particular, is one of the backward districts in economic, cultural and educational spheres of life since the pre independence area. Farming is the means of the livelihood in their children in cities due to their financial crisis. On account of this background it was a sine qua non to establish an institution to meet the educational and cultural needs of the common people. By taking into consideration all this matter, under the chairmanship of the late Hon. S.G. Nakhate ( Ex-State Minister for transport), the traders, farmers, and educationally cautious people came together to establish the Pathri Taluka Shikshan Prasarak Mandal in 1971, which runs the Katruwar Arts, Ratanlal Kabra Science & B.R. Mantri Commerce College since 1972.
