About College

Akola city is situated on the banks of the holy river Morna and is famous for the cultivation of Cotton and Jowar crops. Akola is predominantly renowned as Cotton City. It is also good educational center. The "Berar General Education Society" is engaged in the propagation of quality.

The renowned 'Sitabai Arts College' was established by the society in the year 1938 and has produced many leading luminaries who are well known in their respective areas. A Commerce Department was added in the year 1958. Due to rapid growth, it became necessary to bifurcate it. It was the need of those times to make commerce an independent entity. Therefore, Commerce College was started in the year 1964, named after the great philanthropist of Akola. 'Smt. Laxmibai Radhakisan Toshniwal'. It is heartening to note that Smt. LRT College of Commerce has gained the distinction of being the biggest single faculty commerce college in the entire SGB Amravati University region. The college provides education in various branches of commerce up to Post-Graduation level. It runs M.Phil. course in Commerce. Under the aegis of the Department of Management Studies and Research, attached to the college, various Post-Graduate courses in management like PGDBM, PGDMM and MIRPM, D. Tax, DFM provide excellent opportunities to the youth of the region in the commerce field. Department of Computer Management and Cyber Commerce was started in the year 2000, which conducts the Post-Graduate course in Computer Management (MCM). The college also houses a District Center of the YCMOU which provides distant learning opportunity to the needy. The center conducts various professional and job oriented courses, Like BA, B.Com, DJ, B. Lib, B. Ed., MBA, M. Com, M. Phil.

To commemorate the golden jubilee celebration of our college, two national conferences were held on 27th and 28th January 2014, respectively. A national level conference in commerce on, “Service Sector in India” was held on 27th January 2014. A National Conference in languages on, “Honing language skills in the Era of Globalization” was held on 28th January 2014. These conferences were attended by delegates from all over India.

The college is aware that the NAAC has been instilling a momentum of quality consciousness amongst Higher Educational Institutions, through a process of assessing their strength and weakness and motivating them for continuous quality improvement. We realized the benefits of the NAAC’s Assessments and Accreditation and its contribution in triggering a Quality Culture in the College well as enhancing the awareness of importance in Quality assurance among the stakeholders.

Therefore College faced second Cycle of Assessment in 2010 and NAAC has awarded “A” Grade to College. Now College has applied for third Cycle NAAC Assessment Process. Our Mission is to achieve excellence. Therefore it is a continuous quest and hard effort which we put to achieve excellence in quality of Higher Education.
