Maharashtra (which is the beginning) has spread its wing across and reaching states like Rajasthan, U.P, M.P, Bihar, Bengal and growing strong. Also we have a Akhil Bhartiya Bari Samaj established for sharing thoughts, people, information and running to bring all Bari community together under one roof.
In the year 1977, our Bari samaj got established at Mumbai under the guidance of Mr.Panditrao Bandu Bari(phuse).
Few words from the founders desk: “I have great pleasure of hearing the news of starting the website of social activities by the Mumbai Vibhag Bari samaj Vikas Mandal.Perhaps it may be the first mandal which has taken this activity in Maharashtra. Having celebrated its silver jubliee in 2002, the mandal has achieved this goal of social service by observing all technical norms laid down in its constitution and that too with out any conflicts among the workers. Though the mandal has its vast jurisdictions outside the greater Mumbai, its worker have overcome the difficulties confronted them in conducting the social activities, right from its establishment in 1977. I wish the mandal very success for this new endeavor.” On 17th July, 1977 our Mumbai Bari samaj got established with the guidance of Mr. Ganpatrao Dhule and under the leadership of Mr.Panditrao Bari(Phuse).
