Huvinahadagali is an abode of happiness and the land of fragrant jasmine. A remote taluk place situated at the western end of Bellary District with the urban population of some 27,967, on the southern bank of river Thungabhadra. It can also be called “The rain shadow region” but lots of irrigation efforts are made by farmers who normally grow jasmine and betle leaf in large quantity which is sent to Davanagere, Shimoga, Hubli, Dharwad, Hospet and Bangalore. After the relentless efforts from the local leaders and the benevolent patronage of Veerashaiva Vidyavardhaka Sangha, Bellary, our college was established in 1970, with the donations of the local philonthrophist Sri Gangavathi Huchanna Shresti, so our college was named after late Smt. Gangavathi Bhagyamma, in the fond memory of the mother of the said donor. The college was inaugurated by his Excellency Sri. Dharamaveer, the erstwhile Governor of Mysore state. Since then Gangavathi Bhagyamma Rural College has become the symbol of assurance and promise for the students around. It was a humble beginning yet very promising. At first it was affiliated to Karnataka University Dharwad, Gulbarga University and presently it is affiliated to Vijayanagara Shri Krishnadevaraya University, Bellary.
