Shahajiraje Mahavidyalaya, Khatav (Arts, Science and Commerce) is situated on Satara- Pandharpur road, 44 Kms away to the east of Satara and it is quite adjoining to the village Khatav on its 19.35 acres plot. It offers all modern amenities needed for all-round development of student’s personality.Shahajiraje Mahavidyalaya was established by Shikshan Prasarak Mandal, Khatav (Presently Chandrahar Patil Gramin Shikshan Sanstha, Khatav) in June 1965. It was one of the three colleges in Satara district, and the only one and the first in the drought-prone Tahasil of Khatav & Man. There were only 4-5 high schools at that time in Khatav Tahasil. Under such circumstances, only a few students from rich families could get higher education at Karad or Satara, the cities both of which are situated at the distance of 50 kms, away from this college. But the poor students were deprived of the higher education. Particularly, girl students were lamentably deprived of higher education as their parents were not mentally prepared to send them to outstation colleges. Their poverty also did not permit them to do so. As a result, the parents of girls from this region were compelled to get them married at early stage, which was nothing but complete mental harassment of the girl learners.
