About Institute

Padmashri Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil Institute of Technology and Engineering (Polytechnic), Pravaranagar (Loni) was established in August 1981. It is one of the first of its kind established on No Grant Basis in the State of Maharashtra. The necessity to establish a technical institution in the rural area was felt long back by the great visionary Late Padmashri Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil. He was of the firm opinion that it is essential to provide higher educational facilities to the rural youths because they are not in a position to compete with their urban counterparts in the race to secure admission in technical institutions due to lack of proper facilities and guidelines.

Ever since, the Pravara Rural Education Society established in the year 1964, striving to bring the education to the door steps of the rural masses. The Pravara Rural Education Society lays special emphasis on the education of women as well. Late Padmashri had realized that unless the women folk of the rural area are properly educated, real progress of the rural area is not possible. Under the dynamic leadership of the Chairman of Pravara Rural Education Society, Hon'ble Shri. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Leader of opposition, Legislative Assembly Maharashtra State, the Pravara Rural Education Society has become one of the prominent institutions in rural area providing educational facilities in almost all faculty.

The education in general and technical education in particular is a vital component of Human Resources Development which has dynamism to change the quality of life in rural area. The institute has therefore played a very significant role in imparting technical education at middle level, particularly to the rural youths. Many of these young engineers have become entrepreneurs and have created employment opportunities in the rural area, thereby restricting the flow of rural youths to urban areas to some extent.

This polytechnic is consistently training the youth to make them employable or to become self-employed person. In addition to running formal diploma courses, we take care of overall development of the students by way of training them on soft-skill, industrial training , industrial visits, expert lecturers & value addition courses etc. Our institute is taking an active part in the overall development of the rural region in its humble way.

Pravara Rural Education Society has been awarded as the Best Educational Institution by Govt. of Maharashtra in 2003 and certified by ISO 9001-2000 organization in 2007, and “Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam innovation in governance” award-2016, (Excellent Education Institute) by Indo-US foundation, New Delhi, in 2016.

This institute is a part of the India's one of the best educational hubs which is known by 'Pravara' where in at present more than 40000 students are studying from UKG to PhD. 'Pravara' has the special identity because of the first co-operative sugar factory not only in India but in entire Asia which was established by great visionary Padmashri Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil a humble farmer by birth. The students are honest, disciplined, hard working and I am confident that the requirements of industries would be fulfilled by them..It gives me great pleasure to welcome the Human Resource Managers of various Industries to our polytechnic campus for fruitful interaction that will contribute towards the further progress of the institute as well as students.
