The Government College, Nedumangad affiliated to the Kerala University is one of the premier institutions of its kind in the state of Kerala. A long cherished dream of the people of Nedumangad Taluk came true when in response to the request by the popular college sponsoring committee, the Government accorded sanction for starting a government college as per G.O.(Rt.)1760/81 H.Edn. dated 26-8-1981. The area, which the college is meant to serve, has a very high economic potential but is educationally backward. The University sanctioned affiliation to two batches of P D C, one with world history, Indian history & Economics as optional subjects and the other with full commerce.
The college started functioning on 28-8-1981. Prof. K. Sreedharan Nair took charge as principal on the F.N. of 28-8-1981. The College was inaugurated by the then chief minister of Kerala Sri E. K. Nayanar on the 16th September 1981 at a colourful function in which a large number of students, parents & the public participated. Classes were started on 22nd September 1981. During the 36 years of its existence the college has won distinctions in the field of sports & cultural activities. As a result of the co-operation from all quarters, the sponsoring committee has succeeded in procuring land and constructing buildings for the college at AKKOTTUPARA, about one kilometer away from the heart of the town.
The college started functioning in the new site from the 3rd term of 1989-90 and the buildings were formally inaugurated by the chief minister of Kerala on 14-2-1990.
In 1991-92 after prolonged request from PTA, students & staff, University sanctioned B.Com course with 50 students to our college. This changed the standards of the college. The high success in conducting B.Com classes, University had no hesitation to sanction other degree classes. During 1991-92 a batch of B.A. History and in the next year a batch of B.A. Economics has been sanctioned. These years witnessed a lot of changes in curricular & extracurricular activities. N.S.S & N.C.C functioned very effective. In interuniversity level the college makes its own name in arts & sports.

During 9th plan period the UGC has sanctioned a batch of B.Com (TPP) which is highly job oriented. Three batches of students have successfully completed their course during this period.
The high success rate of graduate courses & the delinking of pre-degree forced the Government to sanction the postgraduate courses.
