Jaysingpur city is located in Kolhapur District in Western part of Maharashtra state and purposefully situated by H.H. Rajshree Chh. Shahu Maharaj in the sweet memory and in name of his beloved father then H.H. Chh Jaysing Maharaj.
Long back, a veteran and renowned medical practitioner of this vicinity, (Late) Dr.J.J.Magdum in kind support and with the generous help by his wife (Late) Dr.Mrs. Prabha Magdum went with an idea and motto to establish a little bit small educational institute to cater the need of the society by providing good quality education to the students from rural areas.
In 1977, both (Late) Dr.J.J.Magdum and (Late) Dr. Mrs. Prabha J Magdum founded the Dr. J.J.Magdum Trust and Shishu Vikas Mandal at Jaysingpur that too only with self-owned funds. Being an instrumental in the development of medical field at Jaysingpur and around, both have sacrificed their through-out life for the well-being and development of this area by serving a lot for the society. Thus, Dr. J.J.Magdum Trust, popularly known itself as Dr. JJM and then came in to existence with a view by establishing various schools, technical and medical educational Institutes/ Colleges to furnish overall education in the field of engineering, medical and allied other related disciplines.
Proud to say, the trust that commenced with humble beginning from pre-primary section has now developed to a veritable knowledge hub with branches like Engineering College, Ayurveda College, Homeopathic Medical College with Hospital set-up, Nursing School, Diploma Colleges in Pharmacy, Degree College in Pharmacy, Study centre of YCMOU and Modi Hospital etc. In-fact the trust has grown leaps and bounds and has made a strong impact in the field of education.
Dr. J J Magdum Trust is efficiently and successfully running under the guidance of Chairman Dr. V. J. Magdum and Vice-Chairperson Mrs. Sonalee Magdum.
