one of the leading educational institute in Junnar Taluka.
The institute has earned great reputation as a ground-breaking unit by
launching programs like "multipurpose school" that aimed
at bringing development of rural area through education. Guruvarya Sabnis
was a great educationist and he had envisioned the development of rural
area through education. He made several experiments in education and this
tradition has been continued by the management of Gramonnati Mandal. Education
was made friendly and useful to the agriculture business by introducing
certain agro-based courses like agriculture, husbandry, dairy science
In order to keep pace with the changing world, Mandal opened various educational
units like technical institute, English Medium School, vocational unit
and agriculture school. Mandal's educational complex covers almost all
disciplines of education and around 7000 students are getting education
