The College was founded by Chikitsak Samuha, a club formed of like-minded individuals who were keenly interested in education. The Samuha had already established and successfully run a school in Girgaon for many years before they decided to venture into the field of higher education.

The College stands on a plot of ground donated by Late Smt. Motiben Dalvi. The College was named after Sir Sitaram Patkar, a distinguished judge of the Bombay High Court, who was knighted after his retirement and his wife Lady Shantabai Patkar. Sir Sitaram was deeply interested in furthering women’s education and was the Vice-chancellor of the S.N.D.T. University for many years.
The College of Arts & Science started functioning from the academic year 1964-65, with Late Prof. A.N. Kothare, a distinguished lecturer in Chemistry, as the first Principal. In response to a heavy local demand for the Commerce faculty, the Commerce wing was started in 1980 with two divisions of F.Y.B.Com. which were extended upto the T.Y. level in subsequent years.

To provide career-based education, the College started degree-level Self-Financed courses of B.M.S. and B.Sc. Computer Science from the year 2000-2001 and B.Sc. - IT from the year 2001-2002. Similarly, for Junior College, Bi-focal courses (Electronics and Computers) were started.

Besides the University based day-time degree courses, the College provides several evening classes for the benefit of society. At present, the College conducts evening classes Distance Education for F.Y., S.Y. and T.Y.B.A. students of University of Mumbai. To help students select an appropriate career, the College has started several Certificate courses

In August 1993, Management rented a part of the wing on the ground floor, facing the main road, to the Bank of India. This helped the Samuha to garner some finances which were utilized for the subsequent construction of a new floor in the laboratory wing for Self-Financed Courses and Students’ Welfare Centre. Construction is currently underway to house new Self-Financed Courses and a Ladies’ Hostel.

Patkar-Varde College has a place of pride amongst the various educational institutions from Jogeshwari to Virar. It has been rendering a valuable service to the residents of this area since 1964. Many of our past students hold very good positions in various fields.
