Admission Notices

    Coimbatore, “The Gold of KONGUNADU” is an evergrowing industrial city. The long felt need for one more college to meet the educational need of this city was fulfilled on 12th August 1973, the day of inauguration of this College.
    16th October 1972 is a memorable day in the history of our College. On that day, the Thudiyalur Cooperative Agricultural Services had organised a function to celebrate Saraswathi Pooja. Thiru.V.K.Lakshmanan, MSc.,(Ex-MLA), a progressive agriculturist and public worker noted for his selfless service and devotion to work and Dr.M.Aruchami, MSc.,BT,PhD.,FAZ,FRES (Lond.), the present Secretary, participated in the function. Both gave expression to their long cherished desire to start a college and the impetus for the fulfillment of the desire was readily given by Late T.N.Palanisamy, MA.,IC (Dip.) USA, the then President of the Thudiyalur Cooperative Agricultural Services.
    Those who made the beginning were fortunate enough to receive the active support from the eminent doctor Late N.S.Palaniappan, M.B.B.S.,DLO, who had a similar idea to start a college on behalf of Anna Memorial Committee in Coimbatore.

    A sincere band of educated and eminent personalities like Thiru.N.Kumaraswamy, Thiru.K.P.Muthuswamy, MA, Thiru.V.S.Chinnaswami Gounder, Er.R.Somasundaram B.E.,FIE, Late S.R.Rathnaswami Gounder, Late M.Subbiah Gounder and Thiru.C.S.Ramachandran B.A., channelised their energies towards the noble task of education.

    The Thudiyalur Cooperative Agricultural Services was liberal enough to donate about Rs.75,000/- and the proprietor of Texmo Industries offered Rs.25,000/-. Other generous donors from the agricultural community and philanthropists of Kongunadu followed their steps.

    Thiru. V.K. Lakshmanan, MSc., (Ex-MLA), a man of strong and clear convictions endowed with keen sense of imagination and dedication, is the President. He shoulders the heavy responsibilities with dignity, grace and ease and guides the institution on the right path.
    The College is ideally located in a serene and rural surrounding not far from the city. It is conveniently connected with all parts of the city through frequent town buses plying from various destinations. The whole campus was a valuable and memorial asset of the noble and philanthropic family of Thiru. V.C. Subbiah Gounder.
