About The Panjarpol Sanstha:

Shree Panjarpol Sanstha, Shahupuri, Kolhapur is Dharmaday (Endowment) registered, well-known organization which is dedicatedly working for more than 106 years as Jivdaya volunteers.

The organization was established in 1906 at Kolhapur by the inspiration and patronizing of H.H.Chatrapati Shahu Maharaj (King of Kolhapur Sansthan) and by cooperation of the Jivdaya Premi Gul (Jaggery) Merchants from Shahupuri, Kolhapur.

The Panjarpol Sanstha, Shahupuri, Kolhapur, is

(i) to take care of weak and infirm cattle (especially cows);

(ii) to prevent, by persuasion, sale of cows;

(iii) to work for the development of dairy industry and agriculture; and

(iv) to run a veterinary dispensary and work against the spread of disease among the cattle.

All persons and traders paying contribution regularly are members of the Sanstha. They form the general body which elects a chairman, secretary, treasurer and a managing committee consisting of seven members, including the three office-bearers.

The main source of income of the Sanstha is the contribution from traders in the Shahupuri Agricultural Produce Market. The contribution is charged to every buyer and the money is sent to the Sanstha. In addition the Sanstha gets some income by sale of milk, manure, etc., and by way of rent from its buildings. The Sanstha has three stables and one veterinary dispensary. The dispensary is open to the public.
