The Beginning, In the year 1964, Chiplun was a small town with population of hardly 10,000 to 12,000. It is situated at the foothills of Sahyadri Mountain in Ratnagiri district and known as Parashuram Bhumi. Chiplun had the history of being the trade centre from olden days when most of the trading was done through sea and further material was carried to Karad, Kolhapur etc. by bullock carts along Sahyadri ghats. Chiplun could not maintain its position as an important trade centre when road transportation got more importance. The whole of the Ratnagiri district was notified as backward area.
To start an educational institution under such circumstances was a Herculean task. There was no higher education centre nearby Chiplun. Either students had to go to faraway places like Bombay, Pune, Ratnagiri or to discontinue their education after matriculation. In the year 1964, under the able leadership of late Raosaheb Khatu, some eminent lawyers, doctors and merchants of Chiplun and surrounding area, thought of providing higher education to the underprivileged people of this area. Most of them were members of managing committee of Parashuram Education Society, which was running United English School in Chiplun. But they were unable to collect Rs. 25,000/- security money to start the institution within stipulated time period. The dreame came true when Ms. Manorama Datar, a native of Chiplun encouraged her husband Dr. G. N. Datar, an eminent medical practitioner from Karad to donate Rs. 1 Lac to start Dr. G. N. Datar Science Arts and Commerce College at Chiplun in the year 1965.
To start with, the college was sheltered in two to three rooms of Parashuram Education Society U. E. School. In earlier years, our students were mostly employed and those who had discontinued their education after matriculation hence they used to be from higher age group.
