 Jamkhandi has been a historic place once ruled by Raja Patwardhan of Poona in pre-independence period. Raja Patwardhan, who had a great foresight and love for education, started educational institution at higher secondary level in a giant building in the heart of the town. He extended his co-operation and support for spreading education till the last day of his regime.
      There were no higher educational institutes in Jamkhandi for the aspirants to pursue higher education. However, Raja Patwardhan continued his support by inviting outstanding students of this area to Poona for continuing their higher education at S. P. College and provided free board and lodging facilities even in post-independence days. This was not sufficient to cover people of all the sections of society.
In such circumstances, the B.L.D.E. Association took up step and started Commerce, B.H.S. Arts and T.G.P. Science College in Jamkhandi in the year 1963.   It is housed in the beautiful palatial buildings situated on the hillocks of Jamkhandi. The College has been permanently affiliated to the Karnatak University, Dharwad and now switched over to Rani channamma University, Belagavi.
     The liberal donation from Smt Bhagirathibai Hanumantagouda Savakar of Bidari (B.H.S.) and Sri Gurusiddappagouda Patil of Tungal (T.G.P.) paved the way for providing the necessary infrastructure to this college. The college was named after the donors to commemorate their contribution. It made its humble beginning with a meager number of just 200 students and the strength has now crossed more than 4300. By envisioning the instinctive talents of this semi-urban area, this college has been adding knowledge and experience to the students of KrishnaRiver belt in its own unique way.
The college has been imparting education in 3 faculties viz., Arts, Science, Commerce, BCA and BBA at the under graduate level and M.A.History),M.A (Pol.Science) and  M.Com. at the post graduate level. M.Sc. in Mathematics course will be started from the academic year 2015-16. It has now been attracting the students from far and wide places. The college has celebrated Silver Jubilee during the academic year 1990-91 and heading towards Golden Jubilee. Earlier the college was a composite degree college covering both the PUC and the Degree programmes. In the year 2002 it was bifurcated into Pre-UniversityCollege and DegreeCollege. Since then both sections are functioning independently. Over the period of five decades, the college has also recorded its name in producing graduates who have now been serving in national and international sceneries. The trained and well qualified teaching and non-teaching staff of the college is doing its best to the expected level. To add academic flavour to it, the college includes 14 Ph.D. and 11 M.Phil laureates to its privilege.
            N.C.C., N.S.S. and S.W.O. wings of the college have been functioning to fulfill the aims and objectives satisfactorily, for which they have been formed. There are well-equipped laboratories and library with a large number of books including volumes of recent editions and publications. The Computer Science, Physics and Electronics department have also been shaping the students to fit them for technical jobs. Well-furnished sports department has been training the students to the standards of University blues in various games every year. The college has national and international level sportsmen to its reputation. Since the inception of the college, it is known for its mode of conduct of examination and is a model in the entire area coming under the jurisdiction of the Karnatak University and Rani Channamma University. 53 students of our college have secured ranks at the University level till this academic.
