The Samiti (committee) started its activities to fulfill the dreams the revolutionaries had for independent India – education, social upbringing and overall development of deprived components of society. This committee established gymnasium, library, seminars and two schools (1st to 12th class).
The Samiti (committee) took the task of transforming Chaphekar Wada into a memorial. This memorial now consists Museum having information and photos of over 450 revolutionaries, a separate section for female revolutionaries and detailed information about Krantiveer Chaphekar Brothers.
