Late Shri Govind Sable was born on 6th March 1913. He had to face a number of hardships during his formative years, but his belief in the virtue of honesty and hard work did not decline. He entered into a business with help of benevolent guidance of Shri Annasaheb Waghire. Together they set up an enviable enterprise. Shri Govind Sable, a kind hearted man, with the desire to do something for the poor, started helping the society by improving the living standards of his on work force. His regard for education led to his association with Pune District Education Association, an organization involved in education of the rural masses.
It was due to his magnanimous help that the college of Pharmacy came up at Saswad.
Late Shri Govind Seth Sable, a hard working businessman with a penchant for social work, went for his heavenly abode on 9 th oct.94. To keep his passion for excellence, the "Govind Seth Sable Memorial Award" is presented ritually, every year on 9th oct. at a especially organized function on this day.
The award is presented to the deserving student at the hands of an eminent pharmacy professional. Though the college arranges a number of lectures by knowledgeable resource persons throughout the year, a special seminar is organized after the Award presentation ceremony on 9th October every year. The seminar, that has participation of specially invited speakers, is generally based on the latest developments in the Pharmacy field. The college has been very fortunate to have excellent speakers for the programme.
Our college was established in June 1991. The College was established, keeping in view the fact that there was no college of higher education within the fast developing area. The major population in this area comes from middle class and is economically weak. There are four higher secondary school in this area.
Access to higher education was a problem for these students especially for girls since other senior colleges were more than 10 Kms. away from town. Our institute has been imparting education to the rural. Today we have adequate number of classrooms, laboratories, computer centre with ample number of computers. We have competent faculty and efficient administration tradition.
