Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust

Rashtreeya Shikshana Samithi Trust was started during the pre-independence era i.e. – in the year 1940, with only six students on roll, by our founder Sri. M C Shivananda Sharmaji. The sapling he planted 79 years ago is today a mighty tree – a fact that is reflected in the establishment of 27 premier institutions, with over 1800 staff members, and around 20,000 students, offering education from Nursery schooling to Doctorate level.  Today, the alumni of R V Institutions are placed in senior positions at various national and international organizations. Also, the Trust runs a special school for differently abled children to cater to the special needs of the society.

By imparting yeoman service to the nation, the brand has been recognized as a household name, a synonym for quality education.  

Presently, the Trust is led by Dr. M K Panduranga Setty, as President of the Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust, with a group of distinguished members forming the Board of Trustees.



Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust believes that every individual from each strata of society needs education to fulfill their aspirations.

The Trust constantly strives towards this social need by inclusion and expansion of academics in its institutions, and further hopes to put up state-of-the-art infrastructure to match the same.

With a vision to excel in all its activities, the Trust envisions an atmosphere of involved learning, instill a spirit of enquiry, induce healthy challenges, encourage sustainable accomplishments and ensure enriching rewards to everyone – students, parents, teachers and associates. Thus, RV emerges as a conglomerate of world-class academic institutions, each taking pride in having nurtured knowledge that will lead to global happiness, peace, harmony and prosperity.


President’s Message

“Education is most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world – Nelson Mandela”. 

R.V (Rashtreeya Vidyalaya) Institutions, are in the forefront among providers of quality education in the state of Karnataka. In line with our Mission Statement – ‘Excellence in Education with Societal Commitment’ – our institutions are providing quality education to all sections of the society for the past seven decades. 

Our institutions have been providing opportunities, especially to the differently abled, and the economically weaker, to fulfil their dreams. With more than 23 institutions under the umbrella of the Rashtreeya Shikshana Samithi Trust, we are present in almost all spheres of academics. I am proud to say that our institutions have made a niche for themselves as far as academic excellence goes.

We encourage our students to go beyond the regular curriculum to sharpen their soft skills and foster innovation through various curricular and co-curricular activities. The backbone of any educational institution are their faculty members, and our faculty are the best in their respective domains of knowledge.

We ensure that all our institutions are equipped with best of infrastructure and laboratory facilities to foster an academic and innovative atmosphere. 

Over the years our goals have not just been to provide quality education to our students. We also teach them to uphold the values and traditions of our motherland. It is our responsibility to train and groom the future citizens of our country.

Our dream and commitment is to see each and every one of our students as a success story.

Dr. M. K. Panduranga Setty

“Education is an endless journey through knowledge and enlightenment – Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam”. 

The vision of our Trust is to impart quality education at a reasonable cost in all core disciplines, and to develop global leaders who are confident, ethical, smart and engaged in all areas of life.

To fulfil the mission of our founder – ‘Impart Quality Education to all Strata of the Society’ – the Trust has established several educational institutions. We celebrate youth and transform them into adults with a sense of social responsibility, with humane values, and with a concern for the environment. 

Our endeavor is to ensure that our students gain academic excellence along with required soft skills to become excellent scientists, technologists, thinkers, leaders, and better human beings, above all.

Today R.V. institutions are a household name in academic, industrial and corporate circles. The last seven decades have seen this Trust rise from strength to strength through the establishment of a number of institutions. 

With state of the art infrastructure, techno-savvy ambience and the latest tools, we equip our students to stride with competitive fervour. We also empower them with job oriented courses, and career-counselling by our highly enthused and qualified teachers. We earnestly endeavour to help each one to realize their dreams.
