 Rai Budh Singh Bahadur Dudhoria (Badi Kothi, Azimganj) was a famous Shaharwali Zemindar in Azimganj. A school was established on his memory. It was a primary school that was upgraded to a higher secondary school. It was the only high school (RBSBHSM) at Azimganj till 1965.

Large numbers of students studies in the school including me. Rai Budh Singh Bahadur primary school is situated behind Badi Kothi and opposite to Keshar Kumari Balika Bidyalaya at Azimganj City.
