It was the major cause for the economic and academic backwardness of this area. There was no higher education facility for the students of this area. The students of this area had to go to Gulbarga, Dharwad or Hyderabad for their higher education. So there was an urge to start Degree College. The government of Karnataka established this college at Shahapur in 1983.
