The Arts, Science and Commerce College, Badnapur (Dist. Jalna) has been established in 1997 by Nirmal Krida & Samaj Prabodhan Trust Aurangabad with the leading role played by prominent academician Dr. D.A. Pathrikar, who is Chief Trustee of the Trust. Earlier there was only one secondary school at Badnapur and after completing 10th there were no facilities for prosecuting higher studies till 1997. Taking into account the plight of rural based students, especially ladies students the Trust thought it fit to start the college at Badnapur for the benefit of rural based students and particularly for ladies students.
