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 to the starting of 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 Kerala University sanctioned affiliation to two batches of I.P.D.C one with World History, Indian History and 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 and the public participated. Classes were started on the 22nd September 1981.
During the twenty seven years of its existence, the College has won distinctions in the field of sports and 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 Akkottuppara, about one kilometre away from the heart of the Town. The college started functioning in the new site from the 3rd term of 1989-1990 and the Chief Minister of Kerala on 14-2-1990 formally inaugurated the buildings.
