Khandesh College Education Society's (KCE Society) roots go back to 1944 when eminent personalities of the region wanted to establish an educational facility right in Jalgaon district. The objective behind this venture was to provide facility of higher education to the young aspiring population for whom the only option was to go to the cities like Bombay, Poona, Baroda, Vardha and Nagpur. Owing to this, Moolji Jaitha College was established in 1945 in Jalgaon. Within a short span, the college became one of the fore runners in field of higher education and soon the Society decided to expand its activities in other realms as well.
The establishment and running of various institutions of Khandesh College Education Society was only possible with zealous and ardent efforts of Late Dr. G.D.
