It still depresses him that due to his prevailing family condition, his aspirations of higher studies couldn't be fulfilled. But in a way, this was a 'Boon in Disguise', had Mr. Patil completed his higher education, he would have served somewhere and wouldn't have turned towards business ever.

This is about Mr. Patil for us all....
Here is a brief about the sapling Mr.Patil has sowed which is now on its way towards the pinnacle.
During his journey in this industry, Mr. Patil very strongly observed that the agricultural goods produced in his area as well as the surrounding parts are not getting its due prices. As this regret of no one taking the mantle to give the due worth to the locally produced goods was worrying the then Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri. Sharad Pawar announced a revolutionary decision of the state government - 'State Government subsidy for fruit farming'. The local farmers started turning towards this facility & started producing fruits. Analyzing this fact that if we start fruit processing project, the farmers will get a fair share for their goods. Mr.Patil dared to start ADITI PECTIN in 1992, a lemon oil & pectin extraction plant from lemons. But unfortunately, some wrong suggestions by a few so-called experts & acquaintances from the business led to a huge loss in the lemon processing project. Even after this setback, & he and his team of colleagues withstood firmly and visited the mango processing units of South India to study the intricacies & its benefits. After a thorough research & analysis of the local market, he thought that this model will work and benefit the farmers. In 1994 Mr. Patil started a new production unit of Mango Processing & Mango Pulp manufacturing. Mr. Patil & his colleagues were making all ends meet to get a good market for their new products, but were finding very difficult to stabilize themselves in both, Domestic as well as International market. Even in these tough times Mr. Patil and his team kept persevering and their efforts paid off by finally getting ADITI brand established in the market. Aditi's products started getting recognition in domestic as well as international market and the demand increased. He rose from all this turmoil just like a Phoenix does from the ashes and kept the business alive & running by his sheer courage & economical approach.
The business received a new boost by the cooperation & emerging policies of Sangli District Cooperative Bank along with the valuable guidance, advice & direction by Hon. Shri Jayantrao Patil [ex-finance minster of state of Maharashtra]
ADITI is now a renowned & leading brand in the Mango Processing industry in Maharashtra. Similarly, in our other units of 'Rest of the fruits' processing, more than 300 men & 350 women are working & it's heartening to see an increase of almost 60% in women employees. The number in men & women employees increase to 700 & 750 respectively during the crop season. For 3 months, people come from places such as Nagpur, Nandurbar, Jamkhed, Parali as well as far states like Uttar Pradesh & Bihar to not just work but also became a part of the Aditi family.
