G.S.Tompe Arts, Commerce and Science College, is one of the oldest colleges of the Amravati district having completed its 50th years in 2018. The college is established in 1968 by late Govindraoji Sitaramji Tompe, a renowned philanthropist of his time. His schooling cannot be traced out and perhaps this might be the reason which grieved him too much and consequently motivated him to provide the higher education to the students of adjacent area, the education which he himself could not get and remained thirsty all through his life and kept on yearning in desire to gain it.
Nevertheless, the vision that he possessed cannot tag him as an illiterate person, rather he may be called an unschooled person having great vision and mission of life.
G.S.Tompe Arts, Commerce and Science College is located in Chandur Bazar which is a taluka place surrounded by the rural area. The tribal area called ‘Melghat’, known for its ‘Tiger Reserve Project’ is not far away from it. The college is affiliated to the Sant Gadgebaba Amravati University, Amravati. The College is on the forefront of the town and Amravati-Chandur Bazar highway passes right from its main gate. Its southwards Amravati district is situated while at its east, north and west, talukas named Morshi, Bahesdehi (within the periphery of M.P) and Paratwada are respectively located. It deserves special mention that the area is known for the orchards of Orange. The college is located on the frontier of Madhya Pradesh and therefore the area gives the sense of it, as soon as we arrive at the place. The college falls in the category of co-education (grant-in-aid) and every year in an average 2000 students are admitted for various academic pursuits.
