Establishment of Padmashali Shikshan Sanstha: 1912

In 19th century, Telugu spoken Padmashali Vinakar Samaj migrated to Solapur from Andhra-Telangana region and gave birth to this institution. Patrons of this community Vithoba Vaddepalli, Somanna Tati, Tippanna Channa, Tukaram Kanna, Vithoba Shapur, Hanumant Palli, Ramayya Mamadyal, Siddramappa Sarangi took the leading role in establishing Padmashali Shikshan Sanstha. In the beginning, Vithoba Vaddepalli constructed the building at his own expenses and offered it to the institution that was known as ‘Vaddepalli Building’. Later Shri. Siddramappa Sarangi expanded the same building in 1929. Shortly the building was entitled as ‘Padmashali Building’.  They started libraries, adult education, night schools, Telugu language classes etc. in the beginning.  Such humble movements in the spread of education became the sacred source of inspiration for Padmashali Shikshan Sanstha.

The Telugu-speaking students did not have access to the education in the schools of western region of Solapur. Recognizing this, President of Padmashali Education Society Shri. Mallayya Chilka, Secretary Shri. Tukaram Kanna, Shri. Vithoba Vaddepalli and Shri. Mallaya Palli started trying to build school for Telugu-speaking students. They began sowing the seeds of education in society with objective of empowerment of poor and needy. During this time, Siddramappa Kuchan and Narayanrao Kuchan contributed fifteen thousand rupees to start the school. This school later founded in 1943 which is currently known as Kuchan High School.

The Renaissance of the Institution:

In the decades of 1980s and 1990s, President Dr. Poornachandrarao Punjal, Shri. Mahesh Kothe, Shri. Dinesh Yannam, Prof. Vilas Bet, Prof. Shiniwas Kondi, Secretary Shri. Dashrath Gop endeavored to maintain the educational standard and the peace of development of the institution. In 1990, Ramchadrapant Burla offered his own building to start a school and a college. Out of this Anusayabai Ramchandra Burla Mahila Mahavidyalaya and Ramavvabai Burla Primary school emerged.

Some of the schools such as B. M. Pulli Kanya Prashala, Narayanrao Kuchan Primary School, Shriram English Medium School have been offering quality education to the underprivileged of the community.

Padmashali Shikshan Sanstha has successfully completed the century long march on a difficult path, with a sense of commitment and devotion to the task of expanding educations. The general aim of universal education has promoted the establishment of several educational institutions in the city.

Currently, the institution endows with the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students. It concentrates on the empowerment of minority families, labour community, downtrodden and weaker section of the society.
