Desai and Dr. M.Basavaraj Urs headed the institutions as principals during the first decade.

Dr.S.G.Desai took over the reigns of the institution in 1971. His distinguished tenure between 1971 and 1985 was marked by the achievement of high standards of discipline, decorum, and academic excellence.
