About Department of Commerce


                      The political leaders, philanthropists and the people in and around Bailhongal felt the necessity of higher education to the rural mass. As a result, with the blessings of His Holiness Shri Shri. Mahant Swamiji of Murgod, the Kittur Rani Channamma Education Society was established in the year 1968, under the presidentship of Sri. S.R.Kanthi, the then Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, Government of Mysore.

As part of the Institution, the “Department of Commerce” was started in June 1972. Sri. I.M.
