The Institute was affiliated to Devi Ahilaya University in 1969 and earned autonomous status in 1988. Modern higher education instead of ameliorating the rural problems has lured the educated and talented youth towards urban areas, consequently the base for overall development, that is Rural Development has suffered a lot and the very foundation of our civilization and culture has been shaken. With this in mind, the University Education Committee headed by Dr.Sarvopalli Radhakrishnan proposed to the Government of India the establishment of 14 Rural Institutes all over the country from 1956 to 1963. In this spirit a Special Rural Institute for Women was established under the patronage of Kasturba Gandhi National Memorial Trust at Kasturbagram with the joint efforts of Central and State Government on 8th. July 1963 for the development and empowering of Rural women through higher education.The special feature along with Modern Conventional Higher Education in Arts, Social Science and Home Science is an extension education which links education to the Society and sensitizes them towards their social duties.With this special feature it became the first autonomous girls college of M.P. in 1988.
