Government Degree College for Women - GDCW

It is a matter of pride to say that Government Degree college is situated in Yellandu, a name associated with renowned Singareni Coalfields. Yellandu is colloquially called Boggutta which means coal heaps, as coal is abundantly.At first coal was accidentally found in Yellandu in 1871. In those days it was the terminal station for the pilgrims going to Bhadrachalam, famous pilgrim centre. In the same year a group   of devotees bound for  Bhadrachalam to attend Sri Rama Navami festival got down at Yellandu station. They were cooking their food on what they thought a piece of stone making ‘Choola’ with three pieces. To their surprise, these pieces of stone were burning and no fire wood was needed for cooking their meals. As the pilgrims were not aware of the existence of coal, they reported the matter of stone burning to a Christian Padherey, who in turn reported the matter to the Government Department of Geological Survey of India (GSI). After receiving the information, Dr,William King ,a geologist of GSI carried out coal prospecting activities in this area.In the year 1886, Royal British Empire established the Hyderabad Deccan Coal Company to tap the rich coal reserves. The British Company started coal rising by opening the first coal mine at Yellandu in the year 1889, after 3 years of its inception. Later the Nizam of Hyderabad bought this treasure from British in London Stock Exchange and named it Singareni as a token of gratitude to a village where the first discovery of coal took place. From then on wards, the Singareni of Yellandu is on the coal map of India and now the pride of the South.
