Malkangiri embodies the spirit of two great personalities of India. First, Hindu mythology tells us of Ramachandra, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu in the tretaya era, once inhabiting in this place, perhaps the impact of its natural beauty was too pow-erful for him to ignore and he stayed here for a long time when he was in exile. Then, of course, this place was known as Malyabantagiri, which has changed to its present form, “Malkangiri” with the passage of time. The second person who gave Malkangiri a place in Indian history, was Sahid Laxman Nayak. His life, an uncommon example of courage, dedication to the cause of one’s motherland and sacrifice is a great source of inspiration to the people of the area, especially to the youth of the present generation. Being situated in a remote corner of Odisha Malkangiri remained an under developed area, particularly from educational point of view, for many year after independance of our country. Even though it is the headquarters town of the Malkangiri District, it did not have any facilities for higher education. Sri Gangadhar Madhi was the first person who tried to bring this area at par with the other developed places of the state. In the year 1979 he started mobilising the interest and money of the local people to set up a college here. He was ably assisted in his endeavour by late B.S.N. Pattnaik, Sri P Ch Mahapatra, Sri Raghaba Padhi, Sri R.K.N.S. Burma, Sri P Ch Sahoo, Sri P Dora, Sri Jaya Das, Sri Satya Madala, Sri B.G. Rao and the local advocates. The business community, the common people and many people and many other well-wishers have also contributed in every possible way for establishing the institution. Finally the noble dream of all these people saw the light on 09.07.1979. The college started functioning from that date in the Govt. M.E. School, Malkangiri. After one year it was shifted to the Govt. Boys’ High School, Malkangiri. Meanwhile a building was constructed by the Joint efforts of Sri G Madhi, Sri C.C. Prusty, S.D.O., Malkangiri and Sri Ranjit Bhattacharjee on a plot of land alloted by the State Govt. in the year 1982 with completion of this building, the need for depending on other institutions to carry on normal activities of the college came to an end. To cope with the growing requirements of the college, the College authorities with the assistance of District Administration, Hon’ble M.P., Hon’ble MLA and Govt. of Odisha have constructed some additional class rooms, office buildings, Hostels for Boys and Girls. Malkangiri College is the nodal college in the Malkangiri District Headquarters going to be the educational hub for the council examination in the entire Malkangiri District. The College provides educational facilities in the +2 and +3 level in the Humanities and Commerce streams with Honours facilities in Economics, Political Science, History, English and Accountancy in Commerce.
