Meet the Founder

Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil, a farmer of Loni, a draught prone backward village of Maharashtra, realized the importance of integrated rural development to solve the problems of illiteracy, poverty, hunger, unemployment, social inequality, economic exploitation, poor public and personal health, which were the real challenges before a young independent India in 1947. The rare visionary was full of ideas, courage and determination to address these issues head on. He initiated the revolutionary cooperative movement of farmers to achieve the impossible – “integrated holistic sustainable rural development”. The cooperative movement of farmers led by him, aimed at the issues of agriculture, livestock development and agro-based industry (1948), primary, secondary and collegiate education (1964) and cooperative banking (1972). All these initiatives started transforming the draught prone backward village towards the path of integrated sustainable rural development – social, political and economical. In order to address the issues of comprehensive rural health care, he established PMT in 1972, Pravara Hospital in 1976 at Loni and several rural health centres in the periphery. For this illustrious social work and sacrifice, Govt of India honored him with “Padmashri” in 1962. Pune University with Honorary D.Lit in 1978 and Mahatma Phule Krishi Vidyapeeth with Hon D.Sc. in 1979.
