Dear Students,

Bijapur, the city of magnanimous history and historical monuments, has since long been a high seat of learning. If Salotagi a small hamlet of the district was the most renowned centre of knowledge a few centuries ago, the BLDE Association, founded in 1910 is the hope of the new generation of academic aspirants.

BLDE Association, an educational institution par excellence, which forged out of the noble concerns of late Dr. P.G. Halakatti, late His Holiness Shri Banthanal Swamiji, the far-sighted visionary Late Sri B.M. Patil and a galaxy of the most dedicated, duty-minded board of directors offers practically all kinds of courses under the sun.

The very fact that the Shri B.M. Patil Medical College Hospital and Research Center, which is one of the very few institutions in India having a 1000 bed hospital, since its inception is just a little more than two decades old and has attained the status of deemed to be University, echoes the melodies of quality medical education it is providing.Come, join BLDE (Deemed to be University), the institution which will nourish your dreams & become competent and good professionals.

With best wishes,
Dr. M.B. Patil
