The Sri Devaraj Urs Educational Trust was founded in 1984 by Sri. R.L. Jalappa. He always dreamed to serve society through education. He had identified that most of the backward sections of our society had no access to higher education which had led to the unemployment and poverty that was directly inhibiting our country's development. Jalappa had the vision to improve every section of our society and that could be only possible through education.
