Sri Sathya Sai

It was formed under the tenet of ‘Love All, Serve All’ and in pursuance of its objectives, it has a sacred and unique relationship with the State Governments where it operates (Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Mumbai and Kolkatta in 2019) and with the Central Government of India.
Sacred, since it has always endeavored to work in tandem with the Central and State Governments in the service of its poorest people; Unique, since it has enjoyed an association of highest respect and cordiality not only with government agencies, but also various community organizations, as well as the local, national, and international communities that it serves.
SSSHET is a Public Charitable Trust recognized under Sec 12a of the Indian Income Tax Act of 1961.

India’s First Free Medical College
India’s first privately run totally free-of-cost Medical College has been established in Muddenahalli in the Chikkaballapur District, Karnataka. It was inaugurated on March 25th, 2023 by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Sri Narendra Modi.
A new values-based model for medical education, this first-of-its-kind endeavor by the Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence, which was founded in 2018 by Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai in Kalaburagi, Karnataka, will bring quality services through medical doctors and nurses with noble values for serving rural India. The University already provides free values-based education in sciences and humanities at graduate, postgraduate and research program levels, absolutely free of all costs to the rural and impoverished students, thereby enabling them to serve other rural children through educational services.
The features of this values-based free medical education model are: 1. Totally free of cost to all – education to the students at the medical college shall be provided totally free of cost and based on merit, irrespective of their socio-economic background. 2. Serving rural India – Along with professional and quality medical education, the values-based educational approach adopted by the medical college will inspire and ensure that the students, who will be taken from rural India, will rededicate themselves to the service of rural India. This model of values-based free medical education by private institutions will help create a generation of medical and nursing professionals, who will be committed to achieving the country’s goal of universal healthcare coverage.
