The opening up of the SanskritPathshala in the year 1907 marked the tryst of the Sangha which is with educational activities which is beginning of the now running historically for over more than a century. Currently more than 124 institutions are actively imparting training, education and empowerment to thousands of students under aegis of Shri B.V.V. Sangha.

This aspiration manifested into reality with the establishment of the P.M. Nadagouda Memorial Dental College and Hospital in Bagalkot in the year 1987.
It is a matter of great pride that the P.M. Nadagouda Memorial Dental College and Hospital which was the first health institute to be established by the Sangha and also the first in the region ,had celebrated the historic milestone of twenty-five year years of its eventful existence. Long years of dedicated service and continuous efforts of institution has made a name for itself for imparting quality dental education to students and affordable, comprehensive, dental health care facilities to the general public.
