Desaiganj (Wadsa), a Tahasil place situated on the bank of Wainganga River on the borders of Chandrapur, Bhandara and Gondia District had no facility of higher education in any stream upto 1989. The rural-tribal people residing in the area of 10 to12 kilometers around were leading most backward life, far back from today’s knowledge-oriented modern society, encircled by many social evils, superstitions, outdated customs, etc. They were unable to send their children for higher education in the colleges situated far away from their native places due to poverty and lack of awareness. Deeply touched by the backward condition of these residents our management, i.e., Nutan Shikshan Prasarak Mandal realized the urgent need of the faculty of higher education in the area. Having the experience in the field of education, being already running one high school and junior College since 1958 and 1984 respectively,the management decided to start senior college. Thus Adarsh Arts & Commerce College came into existence in Desaiganj in 1989-90.

With the change in the institution has updated its aims and objectives. It incorporated many extension services by introducing many fruitful activities in collaboration with several GOs and NGOS. Three new subjects- i) Information Technology in commerce faculty - 1994-95, ii) Geography and Home Economic - 2005-06, Faculty of Science B.Sc. – 2019-20 and Prost Graduation in Commerce Faculty (M.Com) – 2019-20. By making the maximum use of the available infrastructure the college is making step-by-step progress.
