The Trust

    Jai Hind Housing Society established in 1951 felt the need to set up an educational institute in the precincts to cater to the needs of their children as the existing schools were at a distance of 4 to 5 kms across the river.  In June 1966,  the  first step taken on the road towards academic progress.  Today Jai Hind Educational Trust has mushroomed into a wide network comprising of four kindergartens, two primary schools, two high-schools, two junior colleges, one senior college and an Institute of Management and Administrative Studies.This is the realization of the vision of our founder Chairman, Adv. Z.B. Patil who passed away on 17th February 2006 at the age of 92.  His missionary zeal, commitment, integrity and task oriented efforts form a legacy, which is handed down from generation to generation of students.

The College
Jai Hind Arts, Science and Commerce College affiliated to the University of Pune was established in June 1982 later it was affiliated to North Maharashtra University , Jalgaon established on 15th Aug. 1990.  In 1982 the student strength was just 250 and today the college stands in a multi-storied, majestic building providing education to more than two thousand and eight hundred students.

Z. B. Patil College, Dhule located in the remotest part of Maharashtra, shares its borders with Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.  Being predominantly a tribal and rural area, it is economically and industrially backward.  In this arid land, Jai Hind College has created an oasis of quality education with a mission to mobilize student’s strength for a healthy democracy.  This is undertaken by inculcating the values of leadership, creativity, aesthetics, citizenship and healthy respect for life and nature.
             
Within a short period the College came to be known for its academic excellence and it is greatly indebted for its excellence to the immense contribution of the three stalwarts.
